The spring before my family moved to Celebration, Florida from Tennessee, I did an internship with the Walt Disney World College Program to help me decide whether I wanted to stay at school in Tennessee or move with the family to Florida. I mean let’s be honest, I kneeeeew I wanted to move to Orlando, but it was a good excuse to come work for Disney a little sooner. ;)
Before long I was unpacking my Celebration bedroom realizing this was now home! And sure enough, these were three of the faces I met first as a Celebration resident. :) This family lived right behind us and I was as old as Cole, the oldest brother, and Charlotte was going to be a freshman at Celebration High with my little sister. There’s really nothing that makes a new house feel like a home more than your little sister running around with her new best friend! And as it turned out, Charlotte’s family was also from Tennessee, and in even more of a “small world” moment, Charlotte’s brother even went to high school with my suite mates at UT Knoxville!
Anyway, Charlotte emailed us last year saying that her parents will soon be moving out of Celebration following her dad’s retirement but they wanted to surprise her mom with a family session for her birthday. So. Stinkin’. Sweet. Charlotte’s brothers are now married and there’s a new star of the family, little miss Morgan! It was so fun meeting the newest family members. :)
Pam, Hershel, Kip, Missy, Morgan, Cole, Johanna, and CHARLOTTE! We love y’all and wish you the best, neighbors! <3
