JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Spring, Love, and Weddings!

1 Comment

I see it’s been awhile since my last blog post, so I thought I’d just check in and wish everyone a happy spring!  (Now let’s get some spring weather already!)

The most important news for May:

The final countdown is on – the big day is just weeks away!  Milos and I have almost everything ready for our wedding and are super excited for our special day!

Due to work right now, we’re having to do some stretches apart.  It’s a strong reminder of just how easy it was for us to get used to being together every single day for a very long time.  (We just really love being together – in personal and in work life.)  We are definitely the embodiment of the saying “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”  We each have a lot to offer as individuals, but we hit the ball out of the park when we’re working together.

I just read an article about a study that showed being away from your significant-other can cause real physical withdrawal symptoms.  (We could have told them that!)  But we’re grown-ups, and we’ve been through these kinds of challenges before.  We know that the reward is worth the effort and short-term sacrifices.  Milos and I get to talk everyday due to the awesomeness of modern technology, which helps with the whole *missing-eachother-terribly* part.  (We’ll be reunited five days before the wedding, later this month, and we CAN’T WAIT!)    ❤

I’ll say this as a final thought… through all of our fantastic adventures, together and apart, I’m just constantly reminded of the wonderful life partner the universe has given me.  Someone whose love for me matches my own for him.  Someone who encourages me, and always reminds me of my value in every single way.  Someone who makes me smile and laugh and have fun.  Someone to be silly and goofy with.  I can’t think of any better qualities to have in a husband!   ❤

One of my favorite quotes is, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I guess I've been a dreamer all my life - I set my sights high and then I try to reach the sky. Some might call me a naive idealist, but that's just the way I am. I believe in always taking the high road, I believe in true love, and I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. If you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! Being the dreamer that I am, I pursued singing as my primary life's calling - I've got two degrees in classical voice under my belt, and I sing just about anything under the sun. I also love a good adventure. Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of world traveling, and have even lived abroad for stretches at a time: mostly in Vienna (Austria) and Croatia. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and I became a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations. (Seriously, I KNOW Disney - I've been going regularly since I was a little girl - and I LOVE it!) And with all my experience traveling and living in Europe, I'm becoming quite the specialist in that travel category as well. (And last year, I started working as a Tour Director in Central Europe!) As to the other juicy details of my life - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, I'm married to an awesome Croatian man named Miloš who is the BEST adventure partner a girl could ask for. (He's also an expert on knowing how to make me smile.) He's truly the love of my life! I've also had all kinds of other jobs along the way, besides singer and travel pro. (Which is pretty standard for those of us who went to school for music.) I've worked part time weekends as a Disney Princess look-alike for children's parties. I've been teaching for almost 20 years, and have lots of experience in retail and customer service. Oh, and I should also probably mention that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings/Star Trek nerd! :-) Let's all go along for an adventure, shall we?
