Straight from my heart – A glimpse into what makes my fellow Panelists so very precious to me.
Jodi joined the Panel in 2009 and is a fellow Massachusetts Mom. When I went down for my Training Trip in December of 2009, I was excited to be on the same flight as her. I recall anxiously waiting at the gate for Jodi to arrive so that I could soak up every bit of info about the Panel that I could. In fact, I was seated one row ahead of her on the plane, and I turned around every now and then to chat. Jodi is super sweet and has always been very willing to share her knowledge and experience.
Disney Dad Chris is also from Massachusetts and during our photo shoot, Disney took this photo of the 3 of us who proudly represent the Bay State…
At breakfast that morning, there was a great group of 2009 Panelists that we got to meet.
Back row: Diane C, Diane L, Whitney, Anna, Margaret and Karen
Front row: Jodi, Cathy S, Jennifer, Kay and Tanya
Even though we live about an hour away from each other, unfortunately Jodi and I didn’t get to see each other in 2010. She is a mom of 2 adorable children and a highly successful blogger. Jodi is the co-founder of Boston Parent Bloggers and also stays super busy with her own blogs: momsfavoritestuff.com and multitaskingmommy.com. Jodi ends up traveling a lot for blogging commitments and unfortunately couldn’t attend the Moms Panel reunion last October. Earlier this year when I moved my blog from BlogSpot to my own site, I reached out to Jodi for help. She has always been very willing to lend a hand to help me iron out some kinks. Thanks again, Jodi 🙂
In February of this year, Jodi, Ritzy and I were invited to attend Disney on Ice in Boston with our family’s. It was wonderful to spend some time with Jodi and to finally get to meet her sweet kids.
On May 7th, there was a Bloggy Boot Camp in Boston that Jodi was going to attend. At the last minute, she was unable to go and she very generously offered her ticket to me. I learned a lot that day and am so very grateful to Jodi for the opportunity to attend. This was yet another example of her sweet and giving nature, she is truly a gem.
Jodi is very knowledgeable about Disney. In addition, she offers a lot of other great tips about parenting, travel and finance on her blogs. Be sure to check them out.
I look forward to seeing Jodi again soon. I’m really hoping she’ll be able to make it to the Moms Panel Reunion this fall. I’m very blessed to call Jodi my friend and I’m so grateful that Disney brought her into my life.
