How To Stay In Touch With Us!

How To Stay In Touch With Us!

Since our US phone numbers are suspended, you and I will have to keep in touch in other ways. Below you will find almost a DOZEN ways to interact, follow and chat with us as we live abroad.

Obviously, social media is a great way to keep in touch. Below are the links to my personal accounts in case you are not connected yet!

You may have also seen my professional profiles on social media. Next week I will write a post about what I want to be when I grow up - in other words, how I plan to use the blessed time as a #diplospouse in Croatia before we fill the house with kids.

messaging, Voice and video

International calls are a pain, right? Well, thanks to all those smart people in Silicon Valley, we have SO many ways to text, call and video chat without international charges. The apps use a little data, and if you are on WiFi, you sacrifice nothing! WIN!

If you have an iPhone and want to text (iMessage) or FaceTime us, you will need to use my Apple ID. It is - just put that into the "to" form and it will send it to my phone. This also works for FaceTime, and when we get home internet, we will be able to freely voice and video call using FaceTime!

Don't have an iPhone or prefer something else? We are both on WhatsApp with our old US numbers! WhatsApp allows you to text and voice call like a normal cell phone. So far, it has worked great with the hub's family!

Another messaging and calling option is Facebook Messenger, which has worked with my family. I even found out that if you do not have Facebook, you can still download the app and sign up using your phone number.

Want to video chat but don't want to use FaceTime? Add me on Skype: morgan.le.cheeseman. One of the original chatting devices, and you can download the app to your phone. Skype also has a messaging or voice call option.

And then there is good ole email. Feel free to email me at I can pass anything along to the hubs as well! We would love to hear from you all (although I know many of you have kept up with us on Facebook).

Finally, we will still have snail mail! Sign up HERE to be our pen pals.

Be sure to pass this along to anyone who might want to stay in touch with us these next few years. And if you haven't already, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive an email each time a new post is published. Eventually those emails will be beautiful, I promise.

Love to all,
