Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! My name is Samantha Angell, and I began blogging in June 2013 as 'hockey wife, hockey life'. At that point in time, my husband and I moved to Sweden for his hockey career. One of his favorite quotes is happy wife, happy life; thus the name for my original blog! After some time, my blog evolved and is now primarily travel and lifestyle. As such, it was time for a new name. I wanted something that would stick with me forever and that I could grow with, so this space became Samantha Angell: Travel & Lifestyle Blog! If you are interested in getting to know me a little bit better, continue reading below, or check out the 'popular posts' page for some of my favorite posts!
My name is Samantha Angell, and I am originally from Minnesota, USA. Being from Minnesota, the state of hockey, of course I both play and love the sport- so it only makes sense that I married a hockey player on September 14, 2013. Nick and I met February 8, 2012 (read about it here!) while he was playing in Berlin, Germany. Our first year abroad together was in Karlskrona, Sweden for KHK in 2013-2014. For the 2014-2015 season, Nick played for Västerås Is Klubb (VIK). I started this blog our first year abroad after encouragement from family and friends. Since then, it has become an outlet for me to document our travels, daily life, DIY posts, and anything else that comes to mind!
I am a self-proclaimed nerd, crazy cat lady, and wine lover. Currently, I am working on obtaining my MBA with a specialization in international marketing. Right now, I only have one semester left with my MBA courses and am beyond excited to graduate May 15, 2016! Besides these things, I am passionate about my family, traveling, the Minnesota Vikings, and my friends.
My wonderful husband, Nick
Meet the man behind the blog, Nick! We met several years ago in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was pretty much love at first sight, and less than two years later we were engaged and moving to another country. Nick has played professional ice hockey in Sweden, Germany, Russia, Norway, and Finland. Currently, Nick is the Regional Vice President at New York Life MainStay Investments.
