Finding (You In) Neverland

I believe Chelsea has an old soul. A beautiful, charismatic, charming and adventurous old soul. I love her willingness to put her most inner thoughts and dreams out there for the hopeful to see. Her blog is eloquent, funny, heart-filled and I love it!!!

Chelsea does a fabulous job of describing a world that I've not yet had a chance to experience. Oslo seems almost magical through her eyes. She makes my heart smile!

Chelsea writes from her heart. Honesty, love, humor, insight, wisdom and entertainment - just a few of the feelings I get from reading her blog. I always know there will be a nugget for me in there. I look forward to reading her blog.

I've been following this blog for about two years now. Chelsea writes with an honesty that you don't see in many blogs. She tells the truth, reveals herself, and is inspiring.

10:22 AM October 24, 2012

Chelsea has a way of describing her world that makes one want to shake their fist in the air and laugh at the same time. Her words capture your heart immediately and it's easy to remain transfixed long after the PC has been put away. Her experiences in Oslo are transcendent to anyone who has lived abroad but even if you haven't, it's a terrific way to absorb Scandinavia !

12:14 PM October 24, 2012

I am very proud of Chelsea, of her fearlessness, of her insight, and of her honesty. Each time I read her next blog, I learn something new about her, her surroundings and even about myself. She challenges me to think outside the box. She is an inspired writer with a gift and an amazing capacity for love.

I thoroughly enjoyed Chelsea's latest blog 'A Proverb to live by'. It is refreshing to hear someone articulate what we all have believed at some point.

14:10 PM November 05, 2012

Chelsea is such an amazing writer with the ability to restore faith in the minds of those who rarely believe in anything but themselves. GREAT BLOG!!

Chelsea has a beautiful soul which she shares with us while giving deep insights that resonate with all who live the expatriate experience.

I admire Chelsea's courage and openness in sharing her life's experiences and perspectives in this blog. An inspiration to all of us to keep moving forward and maintain a positive attitude regardless of the challenges life puts on our paths. A winner blog in my eyes!

15:22 PM November 22, 2012

Chelsea inspires me to celebrate and ponder this human journey at this point in time. Her openness and honesty is such a breath of fresh air for the soul. Her written descriptions and expressions are so vivid; I can quickly become absorbed in whatever journey she is exploring. Thank you, Chels, your courage through out your journeys is so inspiring!!

Chelsea writes with passion. She has the ability and talent to shape words into tangible expressions that can inspire. Love to read her stories. This blog is wonderful!

13:08 PM November 27, 2012

In an ever more cynical world where dreams have become rare and ideals rarer, one can luckily find both in plentiful supply at Ms. Ranger’s well-written and thoughtful blog. Being an expat can be a trying and lonely ordeal. Sharing ones experiences can go a long way to lightening that heavy load. Well done, Chelsea!

15:40 PM November 28, 2012

WONDERFUL! I am very proud of Chelsea. It is incredible how she can translate into words her experiences. Her blog is a joy to read. Love it!!!

20:25 PM November 30, 2012

Chelsea is an amazing writer with so much wisdom to share and I am persistently inspired by her positive energy and her honesty. Her love for life and for Baby C never fails to brighten my day.

14:53 PM December 05, 2012

great one!

19:41 PM December 05, 2012

Excellent. Best word I can use.

19:42 PM December 05, 2012

Being an avid consumer of internet reading material both for work and pleasure, I am a highly accomplished skimmer. I can glean hundreds of pages a day for those little tidbits I seek. Chelseas blog is one of the rare pages that makes you want to SLOW DOWN and take a little time with it. A 20 year expat in Norway, I have learned plenty about this country from reading Chelsea's words. She has a voice and perspective that are worth hearing. And worthy of your award.

Humaine and direct. Both rare.

Chelsea's sage words never fail to make me pause, smile or reflect, whatever she is in the mood for that day. While so many blogs and writers get stuck in the rut of what is comfortable or safe, Chelsea manages to live outside her comfort zone, whether that be in a whole new country and new language, which inspire so many of her stories, or just in new experiences. While she doesn't shun the comfort of the familiar, she encourages us to find the familiar in new places, new ways and new adventures. Despite being utterly different people, she speaks to me, and my challenges. ...and yes, now I want to move to a beautiful, northern, snow laden country, but upstate New York will have to suffice. Thank you for considering her work among the best. I know I already do.

Loooove this blog.. It is so addictive, so good. It HAS to win!!

23:35 PM December 07, 2012

Your comments are refreshingly insightful and thought provoking! Reading your posts are akin to a chat with a good friend.

06:50 AM December 08, 2012

I adore and admire Chelsea's ability to pour such a pure form of emotion and self realization into words. Admittedly this is my first time reading, and, I have to say this is truly an inspirational piece of work. I especially enjoyed the 100 things I want to have, own, see, become, and realize in my lifetime. She says/realizes so many things that I've never known how or had the courage to say. Very inspirational!
