Hi, I’m Natalie and this is my awesome husband Casey. I’ve spent the last 22 years of my life (minus college in Hillsdale, Michigan) living in America’s Hometown. But once my husband got accepted to the University of St. Andrews in January of 2016, we started making plans to leave America for twelve months and settle in Fife, Scotland. As a young married couple, “home” is becoming more and more a relative term. Is home Plymouth? Hillsdale? Fife? In many ways, home is none of those places! “Home” is wherever I am with Casey. Thus the name “Wherever You Call Home.”
This blog will be an amazing combination of travel tips, exploration tales, DIY projects (mostly from my very-crafty mom, Jennifer), writing life musings, marriage discussions and other things that generally fall under the term “lifestyle.” You’ll get a taste of everything, but if you have a particular passion, just check back to the related category for more of the same. Thanks so much for checking out our spot!
Natalie — Hi there! I am a 22-year-old recent college graduate who loves to write and hopes to make a living doing just that. I studied journalism in college and freelance right now. I love coffee, quiet nights with my amazing husband and antique cookware. Someday I hope to have a little house, a garden, plenty of kids and some dwarf goats, but for now Casey and I are being young, free and adventurous. I’ll be a freelance writer during our trip to Scotland and writing most of the posts to give you a glimpse into our world.
Casey — Hello there fellow travelers! I am a 23-year-old lover of history, books, and J.R.R. Tolkien. I am super excited to spend the next year in Scotland with my beautiful wife. I graduated in 2015 and while in Scotland I’ll be studying to get my M.Litt in Medieval History from the University of St. Andrews. If all goes well, I hope to use that degree to teach history once I graduate.
