FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& BLOG HOP]: Meet Chelsea & Amanda

Umm...where did this Friday come from? I swear, it just snuck up on me this week. Not that I'm complaining or anything. D and I have BIG plans for the weekend. B-I-G. We're celebrating 6 wonderful years of wedded bliss on Sunday! I can hardly believe it myself. 6 AMAZING YEARS! I'm feeling rather blessed, my friends. That husband o' mine is the bee's knees, if you didn't already know. ;) While our anniversary isn't officially until Sunday, the celebration starts this afternoon as D whisks me away for a romantic trip to the Alsace wine region of FRANCE! We've tried German wines all over Germany, Italian wines in Tuscany, so we figured we needed to be well rounded and get some French wines under our belt. And about a thousand macarons. You KNOW that's happening. Only not-so-fun thing about this weekend? It's going to be in the 90's, temperature-wise. Our hotel has ZERO air conditioning, so we might melt. But at least we'll melt in France. Life could be worse! So, while I'm lovin' on the hubs and traipsing around Colmar, Riquewihr, and a few other French villages I can't pronounce, you should make your way over to meet my 2 STUNNING Fresh Face's this Friday! They're both blonde, they both live and teach English in South Korea, and they're both two of my favorite friends and expat bloggers (girls, please tell me you know each other...you'd be like two peas in a pod!). While you're here, don't forget to link up your blog to the Fresh Face Friday Blog Hop at the bottom of this post! And tell your friends, will ya? Au revoir, my dears!

OH! And the winner of last week's drawing for one free month of the Fresh Face Friday ad spot is: Kayli of Kayli Wanders! Congrats! Expect an email from me soon, Kayli! And thanks to all those who linked up last week!


Brains, beauty, and a heart for travel? What more could you want out of a blogger? Miss Chelsea, the writer behind the Lost in Travels blog, has got all that and more! After getting married to the love of her life, Chelsea (and her hubby) decided to make the move to a small South Korean island for a little adventure. Over on her blog, you'll find recaps of their amazing travels around Asia, stories about acclimating to South Korean culture (I especially love this one!), and lots of tips on travel (excellent reads if you're about to jet off on vacation this summer!). If Chelsea's fun-loving writing style and fascinating life abroad doesn't hook you, I'm not sure what will! Head on over and make friends with this lovely lady. She's as sweet as they come!

Friends, meet Amanda--expat, travel junkie, and the gorgeous blogger behind Living In Another Language! Over on Amanda's little slice of the interwebs, she introduces us to her exciting life living and teaching English in South Korea, takes us along on her travels around Asia (love these recaps from her trip to Vietnam!), and shares funny interactions she's had with some of her students. I swear, she's got the cutest kids to teach! I'm also really digging her Friday Funnies link-up and posts! Everyone could use a little more laughing in their lives, am I right? Please take some time today and get to know my sweet friend, Amanda. And be sure to come back and link-up your Friday Funnies, too!

  1. Congrats on your wedding anniversary, Casey!
    Have a wonderful weekend in La France and many, many more years of marital bliss to come :)

  2. Congrats on your Wedding Anniversary!

    I was already a follower but this is my first time linking up for fresh face Friday! Thanks for the awesome Link up!


  3. Six years, that's amazing! Congrats! I recently found your blog as my husband and I are moving to London in October!

    Our 1 year anniversary is at the end of October, and I've been dreaming about spending our anniversary in Paris! But now that I read your post, maybe Bordeaux sounds pretty amazing too!

    I just started my expat blog and I'll be linking up soon! Thanks for hosting!


  4. This has zero to do with the blog hop, but I was directed to you by Megan at ATP, and when I saw you were a military family in Germany, I immediately thought Wiesbaden?!

    My grandfather lived there for the last several years of his life (in the neighborhood with the philosopher streets, just east of the Kuranlagen) and I was lucky enough to visit him and the city in 2008. We tootled around the region, and I still dream of these mushroom crepes in the cafe across from the dom in Mainz.

    Thanks for the happy walk down memory lane! I'll always cherish that time!


I appreciate your feedback, friends! I read every comment and try my hardest to respond to each one, but if your email address isn't attached to your blogger profile, you might find my response in the comment thread instead. As always, thanks for reading!
