I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy right now, and it's all thanks to Monna at Slow Blogs. Up until a few days ago, I was pretty sure that the only people reading Love and Chopsticks faithfully were the same people that would have come to one of my childhood piano recitals or synchronized swimming competitions (Oh, the shame!) -- family and close friends. I was obviously thrilled when Monna contacted me to let me know she was enjoying "our blog" -- and I was even more excited when she told me she was featuring us on Slow Blogs as a story worth reading.
I'm sending the love back to Monna and am leading you, our faithful readers, to her story at Teacher Meets World. That's right, she has two blogs. I know, crazy. How will you ever keep up? Anyway, she takes the whole travel lifestyle to another level, as she and her boyfriend DP left their home in Ottawa, Canada ten years ago and have been living abroad ever since! Traveling is one thing, but working and living in a different culture is something else entirely, and I bow down to their sense of adventure and bravery.
Thanks, Monna, for making my day.
