I'm Just An Orange County Girl

I grew up in southern California, Mission Viejo to be exact, and I have so many memories from that hot little town. Many of those memories have something to do with my absolute favorite place in the world...Disneyland. I think that's why I have such a place in my heart for Disney. It was a huge part of my childhood. I remember riding in the back seat of the family van down I-5 right past Disneyland, and stretching my little head as far back as I could, just so I could catch a glimpse of the very tip of the Matterhorn. To this day, I still get super excited when my husband and I take a weekend trip to Disney World. We only live about two hours away...well worth the drive. My mother put this little chart on the refrigerator and every time I did a good deed or something that would make her smile, I would get a little gold star. I won myself a trip to Disneyland once I reached 100. I was the most well behaved little girl anyone could ask for. :) I think one of the biggest reasons I'm a self proclaimed "Disney Fanatic", is because I have such an obsession with that wonderful era that falls between the 40's and 60's. I'm the kind of Disney fan that gushes over vintage Disneyland postcards and guidebooks that come from that "Walt" era. The old movies, the old recordings and classic rides and artwork. You don't see that anymore, and when I come across Disneyland memorabilia I feel like I've come across a treasure. Imagine my happiness when I came across Gorillas Don't Blog. These photos are amazing and there are so many more on the site.
