The Best Times to Visit Disney World or Disneyland Without Missing School

Taking a Disney vacation can be one of the best trips you go on as a family! Disney World is magical, but it can also be an unpleasant experience. The large crowds and high temperatures can turn a magical vacation into a miserable experience. We all know that the best times to visit Disney are during the offseason, but many of us can’t afford to pull our kids out of school every time we want to take a trip! And as kids get older it's harder and harder for them to miss school. If you are looking for a way to visit Disney without missing any school, here are the best times to visit.

5 Reasons to Send a Handwritten Note PLUS Free Card Download

We just came out of one of my favorite seasons of the year. I love sending and receiving Christmas cards and every day when we check the mail, it's like a fun surprise seeing who sent a card that day. Bonus points if it's got a fun handwritten message or letter inside. The art of sending and receiving mail is dying, and sadly, I'm noticing fewer and fewer Christmas cards and letters too. But I'm hoping the art of letter writing isn't dead. I get it, sending texts are easier, but don't you get that rush when you see a handwritten note in your mailbox instead of a bill? Today I'm sharing a free PDF file with several different card designs that you can color in or paint with watercolor and then send off to a friend. Let's make sure the art of letter writing doesn't die!
