Happy Birthday Michele! Messages From Home

Today is February 13. To many that means it is Friday or the day before Valentine’s Day. But here at TMSM today means SO much more than that. Today is the birthday of the lady behind it all, our fearless leader Michele Atwood!

MLast year we shared with you a surprise birthday message to Michele from her husband Scott. But this year I thought we should go a different direction in celebrating Michele’s birthday. As we all know this past summer the Atwood family decided it was time to take the leap and move to Florida to be closer to the Disney parks. While they have enjoyed this move milestone moments have been rough on Michele because she comes from a very tight knit family and has some amazing best friends back home. So this morning I wanted to take a moment to share with you (and Michele because this post is a surprise to her) some messages I gathered from several of Michele’s family and friends at back home in Michigan as well as some of the important friends she has made because of TMSM!

From Michele’s Parents:
Michele, To our birthday girl. So proud of the beautiful person  that you have become. It is your special  day and we hope you enjoy. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday. With all our love, Mom and Dad .

Shell, it will be strange to not be able to stop by your house and see you for your birthday today. But that’s okay…..you are making you dreams come true down in Florida, and….it is one, YES ONE, degree here today! I hope you know how proud we all are of you!!!!! It has been a magical year for you and I pray this next year is full of even bigger, better, more amazing things because you are deserving of them. You are brave, and smart, and beautiful, and you take all that comes to you in stride, with a humble heart, and you keep going. Keep up the fabulous work you are doing. You make so many people smile, including me! Happy birthday my beautiful friend! Enjoy the day! Scott and boys, give her a huge hug from me!!!! Love you Shell!!!! Happy Birthday!

M, Last year I said in my message to you “You are the mellow to my fire, the rational to my quick to ignite, and an amazing sounding board.” and that hasn’t changed. Thank you for being the yin to my yang, the calm to my fire, and for being a wonderful friend. Few people in my life have been important and trustworthy enough to earn a prefix before the word friend. You my dear are in that hall of fame. Thank you for being a best and thank you for encouraging me to do my best. 🙂  I love you, the boys and Atwood more than cupcakes! <3 Aut

Michele Atwood is the Owner/Editor of The Main Street Mouse and it’s subsidiaries and author of the books “Moving to Main Street U.S.A.” “How Many Sleeps Till Disney?” and “How Many Sleeps Till Disneyland?” Michele also contributes Disney news to the Joe Kelley Morning Show on 107.3 WDBO in Orlando. She and her family made the move from Michigan to the Orlando area to pursue their Disney dreams. Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
