When I was little, I had 3 obsessions: Ballet, K3 and Disney princesses. I was walking around in either a tutu, K3 dress or a dress of one of the Disney princesses. And even though my obsessions weakened by the years, it's still a soft sport as it was such a big part of my childhood. 

As any other girl who is obsessed with these things, you want a few things: take ballet lessons, go to a K3 concert (and musical) and go to Disneyland Paris! By the time I was 9, one of these dreams came true, I went to a K3 concert. I tried ballet but, my balletclasses weren't that successful as hoped, as the lessons included us to dance in circles in our normal clothes. Real ballet was different to me, and I still stand by that! I also tried to convince everyone in my family to take me to Disneyland but no one gave in. I always got the same answer from my grandma when I was sleeping there and saw another Disneyland Paris commercial on tv: “When I win the lottery we are going to Disneyland!” I would always make a funny face at her because of course the chance of that happening was really small. 

Fast forward to February 4, 2013, a supernormal and maybe even kind of boring day for my grandparents. But then the bell rang. And there he was; the one and only Gaston (a Dutch tv host, known for mostly de Postcodeloterij) with an enormous check. Their whole street won 25.000 and my grandparent's neighbours even won a car! It was funny to watch on television as I saw my grandma in complete shock being happy and constantly hugging Gaston! When Gaston asked my grandparents what they were going to do with the money, their answer was: go to Disneyland Paris with my grandchildren! 

And that’s what we did. My grandparents, parents, sister, brother and I all went to Disneyland Paris together. Saying I had an amazing time is an understatement. I went on so many fun rides, stayed in a really fun hotel, and saw so many Disney characters. But most importantly I saw the Disney princesses! I was already eleven, but still very much enjoyed taking pictures with them! I can’t thank my grandparents enough for making this dream of mine come true.  

This is your sign to buy a lottery ticket! You never know! 🙂
