Woo hoo! Post 500!! Thanks for being a part of my blog. It’s absolutely my favorite hobby, hands down, and I’m so glad you all are a part of it! 🙂
I thought it would be appropriate that this weeks “fact” be about the Disney Diva herself, in celebration of this milestone.
Fact: I have always felt a connection with Walt Disney. His ingenious creativity and determination to stick to his own path are truly inspiring, and I often wonder how the world would get along if he has not been so persistent in bringing his vision to life. While I never had a chance to meet him, from a young age I was intrigued by his life. So whenever I find a small connection to myself and him or the company, I get a little sentimental.
Maybe it’s silly, but I like to think it’s a little more than a strange coincidence that they day the Disney company was founded just so happens to be on my birthday! With a few years apart, of course 🙂
That’s right. Founded on October 16, 1923, by Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio, the company soon established itself as a leader in the American animation industry before diversifying into live-action film production, television, and theme parks.
When I learned that, I literally squealed in delight. It’s such a great piece of information that I keep close to my heart and remind myself when I’m feeling a little down. I’m glad I saved it for this moment!
Now, it’s time to celebrate!
