FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& Blog Hop!]: Meet Megan & Akirah

Guten morgen, friends! Guess what?! I'm on a plane!! Soon to be on a boat...but that's not until tomorrow. D and I were up bright and early at o'dark thirty ready to make our way to Barcelona for our Spanish cruise! We've got 2 days to explore all that Barcelona has to offer (which I'm more than stoked about...hello sangria and tapas!) before we board our ship and sail off to Morocco, Portugal, the Canary Islands, and Malaga. After our lack-luster Baltic cruise this past July, we definitely need something to take the bad cruising taste out of our mouths. Remind me to blog about that cruise one day (I swear, I'll get there). With the weather forecast for each destination in the mid-70's to low 80's and 4 "sea days" ahead of us, I think this cruise is already shaping up to be pretty stellar. Not to mention we're gonna ride camels! I rode a donkey in Santorini, why not add a camel to the list? Seems like the natural order of things. :) I know I say this every trip, but since we've never been to any of these locales before, it's worth saying again...make sure you're following my INSTAGRAM feed!! I'm sure I'll be posting an ungodly amount of fun travel pictures during our cruise and you won't wanna miss 'em! Things on the blog and in Twitterville will be pretty quite while we're sailing, but I do have a few posts scheduled so you guys won't forget about me. And if you've got a handmade shop, don't forget to sign up to be showcased in my 2nd Annual Handmade Holiday Gift Guide! I'm taking entries until November 6th, so spread the word to all your shop-owning friends! I want this guide to be the best one yet!

Ok, enough about my vacation excitement and blog housekeeping...on to my lovely Fresh Faces! Be sure to visit the two fun bloggers below and leave them some love. Also, link up your own creative space to the Fresh Face Friday Blog Hop and meet some new friends this weekend! All the cool kids are doing it. :) Adios, my friends! See you in 9 days!!

  1. ¡Buen viaje! Also, I would love to hear an honest recap of your Baltic cruise. I've been mulling over the idea and everyone that I've talked to that has done one recently (seems so popular right now) has loved it, but I'm hesitating for some reason...
