FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& Blog Hop!]: Meet Vanessa & Jenna

Happy last Fresh Face Friday, y'all! Awww. Sad face. Don't worry, though…it's not the end of Fresh Face Friday forever (hello, alliteration!)…it's more like a "See ya later!" kind of thing. As you know, D and I are in the midst of preparing to leave Germany. With the task of moving abroad comes great stress and potential periods of time I may be without internet…or time to devote to writing on this little blog 'o mine. I have no idea what the next few months will bring me in terms of schedules and internet access, so I didn't think it was fair to my sponsors or myself to try and keep hosting FFF when there's a good chance I won't be around (as much) to give it my full attention. As of now, Fresh Face Friday will go on hiatus from May until August. Total bummer, but it's gotta happen. :( I have every intention of bringing it back in August once the moving dust has settled, but who knows where my brain will go with 3 months away from my FFF routine. Maybe better things will come to fruition…maybe not? I'm letting the wind blow where it may. Either way, I've so enjoyed sharing 6 lovely bloggers with you guys each month and hosting a hop that has drawn in a wide variety of bloggers from all different writing categories. It's been a joy to see new faces and old faces link up each week, and I'll definitely miss making new blogger connections of my own! I've had THE BEST sponsors come along over the last year…no greater group of girls out there! And I hope you all have enjoyed making connections as well. In lieu of having FFF sponsors, I am still accepting vacation guest posters (3 spots left!) and will be adding a few moving guest posting ad spots in a few weeks. If you want to take over my blog for a day while I'm away…head on over to my sponsor page to find out more!

Now, on to the main event…the last two Fresh Faces of spring! Please take some time today to say hello to these two gals and link your blog up ONE LAST TIME (for now) to the blog hop! Thanks for all the fun and support this past year, friends. Hugs and kisses from my insanely messy apartment! Can you guess what we'll be doing this weekend? I'm already sick of boxes. ;)


Vanessa, or Van, as she's known on her blog, is a German native, student, and travel-loving girl on a mission to explore the Arctic. Over on Van's blog, On the Road Again, you'll find great photos and recaps of her adventures in Sweden, Norway, and the Baltics! She also loves participating and in travel and photography link ups…and even started two different series of her own! Come get to know more about Van and her desire for the North. Another fun travel blogger to add to your reading list!

Miss Jenna of the blog, Healthy Globetrotting, is fairly new to the blog world (welcome, girl!)! She's a teacher currently living in China and has devoted her blog to sharing her exciting travels around Asia, her thoughts on what it's like to be a teacher in China, and my personal favorite posts, how to eat healthfully while traveling! Jenna has tons of great insight and suggestions on the eating customs of Asia and how you can stay healthy while exploring the world...so make sure to stop by her blog and learn something new! Thanks for speeding the wealth, Jenna!
