Orlando is the city for busy family vacations. With the dreams-come-true fun of Disney and the movie magic of Universal to start, you will never run out of cool stuff to do. I've been to Orlando with my family several times; the last time we drove the 2115 kms from Toronto to Orlando. This time we had the luxury of an invitation by Visit Orlando to fly down for a four day Florida family fun-a-thon.
Last year, I promised my daughter a new ski jacket. Bless her heart, she wore her last one for two years until it ripped. I was trying to put off the inevitable because kids' ski jackets are so expensive! Last year I had to buy my son a new one and I almost had a heart attack when I saw the price for a kids' ski jacket! So this year, I'm doing it smart. I'm starting early while there is a huge selection and I'm shopping from the comfort of my computer.
Sitting in a Starbucks in downtown Halifax listening to Tamara Franz-Odendaal talk, all I could think was I wish my daughter could be here to hear this! Like me, Tamara is the mother of a nine year old daughter, and she is passionate about raising girls to be strong, self sufficient, and financially independant.
