A DISmeet here..a DISmeet there..Our August Southern Tour- Final Posts - #544!

Hello everyone!

This is a different type of PTR, no we are not going to Disney this time...we are travelling around the south and meeting up with a LOT of fellow DISers some we have met IRL, others just virtually here on the boards!

A big part of our trip other than being with our friends is taking Megan back to places we have lived and traveled to during the first couple years of her life. Since we lost her daddy Jim, it has become very important to me bringing Megan to revisit these cities and for her make her own memories and to add new memories in with our memories we made with Jim


I'm Lisa and my daughter is Megan we are very excited to be heading down to Atlanta, Charleston and Charlotte this summer!



We will be staying with DIS friends, MickeyTeacher - Shawna, Bruce, Ryan and Ansley who we spent part of our WDW trip last March together for a few days outside of Atlanta, and meeting up with a few more DISers - DisneyBarlans, BabyNala (who we met for a few minutes in October) and NiniMorris!!

Then Megan and I will be going to stay in downtown Atlanta to see the sites there and meet up with some family friends we haven't seen in years.

Next up will be 3 days in Charleston SC....Megan was born here so it has so many special memories for me....even though it will be bittersweet to take her back without her daddy, know it will be a wonderful trip for us both...to show her our favorite places and the golf course Jim supervised the building of!

Our last stop on our southern tour will be Charlotte NC....we also lived here for a year when Megan was two, we are staying with blessedmom4 - Judy, Pete, Christian, David, Rachel and Lisa! who have truely become family to us! Judy and I feel like sisters and we were blessed to meet them in October during Lisa's MAW trip!

During our stay in Charlotte, we are having a MEGA DISmeet with a number of ladies from the DISBoutiquers and are looking forward to finally meeting them IRL, do a bit of shopping and hanging out, I think we have around 15 coming in for our meet...so hopefully they will jump on here and say and will go visit the golf course Jim built here also!

So stay tune for updates....even though we aren't going to Disney, we are going to have a trip full of magic and fun!!!!

I have to once again comment on this photo because it is gorgeous!

I also would love to see the golf course -- I wonder if we could do an early morning or late evening walk on the paths? Not sure if that's allowed or not, but if Jim built the course I think it should be allowed! And while I would love to see it, if you are happier going alone with Megan I have no objections and will stay out of your way. I have not gone golfing since having children so best for me not to ruin the course with my divots! I don't think I could do any damage walking the paths though -- your call on this one.

thanks Andrea, we really love the photo too!

The golf course is The Club at Longview.com and is private, so not sure if they will let us on or not....I will probably call ahead and ask if they will give us a few minutes to take a couple photos ... I never learned to golf, before we had Megan if I went with Jim, I was his caddy and loved driving the cart!

Although I'm not a frequent poster and surely not up to the standards of the wonderful things everyone makes, I'm trying. The Charlotte Dismeet is close enough that I am going to try to make it! I would love to meet all the people behind all these beautiful things.

Everyone's work has really inspired me to test myself and see what I can make


I'm looking forward to this!

sorry you can't come, but you are welcome to join in on the fun here! I love meeting fellow DISer's, my family and friends IRL just don't get my "friendships" here and getting to meet up is a big treat!

I'm Marianne. I met Lisa over on the Big Give board and through the fabulous Disboutiquers. I met Judy during her Lisa's Big Give - yes, really met her in person! at my house even! - although even though we both live in Charlotte, it has proven VERY difficult to get together like we want.
I'm spending the summer in Rhode Island with my two boys while DH stays here and works like crazy (he's a Golf Professional at The Peninsula Club on Lake Norman) . . . but I'm coming back in time for the DISMEET here in Charlotte and I cannot wait!

Here's a couple of pictures - I seeing everyone posting pics of themselves! I love putting faces to names!

From our last trip to WDW - DH, Me, Phalen (7) and Finn (almost 4!)


and a Mom & her boys shot (since DH works all the time and it's highly unlikely anyone but D~ will meet him)

Lisa - I know DH has connections at Longview, so let me know if you want me to see if he can work something out for a visit


Had to come back and edit - I was bummed I didn't make the first page, but now I'm not, because my post happens to be my lucky number! #21!
