My Turn in "Lights" -- Andi Visits Zannaland!

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Some of the richest blessings associated with being on the Disney Moms Panel are the ones pictured above.  The word "Disney" is synonymous with quality, and maybe with the exception of yours truly, Disney has struck gold again by affiliating with 43 panelists from across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.  When meeting in December, I knew I would be impressed with them all (and a little intimidated, too).  However, I was completely taken back by how close we all became so quickly.

My kids always ask, "Now, who is your favorite...or who is your 'best' best friend on the Mom's Panel?"  To which I start to answer with one name which leads to another, and then another...until finally I exclaim they're all my favorites!

I'll have to admit that I was one of the extremely lucky ones when it came to applying and being accepted for the Moms Panel.  Although I'm an experienced writer and a huge Disney fan, I applied for the first time without much thought (or really hope) and was delightfully surprised when emails of "Congratulations!" filled my in-box after submitting my essays for the first few rounds.

And, that's when I started to lurk!  I thought I better conduct some 'due diligence' in reverse on this Moms Panel endeavor and find out who else may be in this arena with me.  And that's when I found Zanna!  (Or as I like to call her, "Suz."  I like to have my own name for people sometimes so that they know me instantly on the phone.  It cuts down on the small talk!)

I began to visit Zannaland often and got so caught up in her story about applying for the Moms Panel that I began rooting for her over me!  My kids would even lurk over my shoulder and encouragingly add, "Oh, yeah, Mom...if she's in it, you're outta there!"  (Thanks, offspring!)  Her writing was (and continues to be) engaging, and she kept me coming back for more and more and more throughout the panel selection process.  I couldn't believe that I was so invested in the life of this woman whom I didn't know -- all in the name of Disney.

Little did I know that "Zanna" would become "Suz" to me and become someone so near and dear to my heart.  Almost daily, she makes me laugh.  Her heartfelt passion -- for not only Disney -- but for those who share her life passions of family, friends and connecting with one another is evident and thriving on line as well as in person.  Face to face, she's a gentle spirit that draws you closer with her insightful, soft-spoken words, and her drive to pour her life into others (especially her children) is her hallmark.  Her beautiful blue eyes are captivating, and her warm smile is that of a comforting, well-loved and well-known friend.

So...not because I'm the feature this week on her website (although I'm pretty stoked about it!), but because I want you to get to know my friend, Suz...strap on your Mouse ears, grab a Mickey bar and click on over to Zannaland or pay her a visit and ask a few questions at Disney World Moms.  She's your friend you may haven't met yet!
