Sometime in the next couple weeks, Scattered Seashells will be moving to WordPress.

What does this mean to you?

The link will remain the same, but if you're following via GFC, you'll need to find a new way to follow - Facebook, Twitter, Email, BlogLovin', or any other way.

Blizzard Bloghop!

I'm way late on the train here, but I'm hopping on. Welcome to the Blizzard Bloghop, hosted my Household 6 Diva! Unfortunately it's nowhere near a blizzard here (like closer to 80 degrees) but we can all wish, right? The deal is simple: Just write an intro blog about yourself! Have I even done that? I can't remember!

Hi, I'm Chantal.

I'm 23 years old and a proud Aries. I have brown hair (except when I try to dye it red) and blueish-greenish-grayish eyes. I have 2 older sisters and 1 younger sister, and when you get us all together it's crazy but so much fun. I also have 2 brothers-in-law and 2 little nephews. I was born in Canada and lived there for 12 years (and thus, learned to speak French. Oui!) and then moved to Denver, CO. I went to college in Colorado Springs and was in the ROTC program for 4 years.

Oh, and I used to wear glasses. I call my new eyes my "3000 dollar eyes."

Well, I was injured during ROTC, so after my 4 years I couldn't be commissioned. However, during that process, I met a lovely young man named Brandon. He was a year ahead of me in school and we liked each other from the beginning, though neither of us knew about it. I broke the ice in May 2006, and we've been together ever since! We were engaged on June 2, 2007, and married June 1, 2008. <3

Brandon went off to finish his Infantry officer training while I finished college. In May 2009 I packed up my car and moved to Georgia to be with him while he trained. Exactly 3 months later we left for sunny Hawaii, where we've been since!

Life has been good here. I'm currently working at a job that is just that, a job. I'm slowly working on my real dream: to be a full-time writer. Oh, once we got to Hawaii, we got Winston, our cat, and Dexter, our dog.

Brandon deployed 211 days ago. That's when I started this blog. Really, I've been blogging for quite some time at my other blog Chantal's Blog. Like since 2008. So if you wanna see some "retro" blog posts from me, head on over there!


  1. i like your deployment to do list!! I have one too-only not as interesting as yours!

  2. I had been following your blog for a little and just realized that I know you from cinchouse (though I rarely comment on there)! :) Or at least, I was familiar with you from there. :) Anyway, so was just stopping by to say "hello" :)
