The inspiration behind inspiration pending...

I know, I know…it’s about time I finally created my blog! As many of you know, I had quite the time coming up with a name for my blog. Although I still think Crystal in Cambodia was a brilliant idea…none of you seemed to agree. After countless hours brainstorming blog names with all of you, it was through a complete stranger that my inspiration was finally found. En route from Seattle to Cambodia, I sat next to a women named Cara. After explaining my blog name dilemma and divulging my life story (and yes, I find this a totally normal conversation to have with a complete stranger)…her response was “it sounds like your life is one big quest for inspiration...why not just call your blog inspiration pending?” And with that….my blog was born! Therefore in my first post – I think it’s only appropriate to give Cara from Kansas City a special shout out and thank you!


  1. HI Crystal,
    Great blog name!
    I love the pictures! It sounds like you are having an amazing time. Dad says he is glad someone asks you more questions than he does. Love, Mom

  2. Perfection.

    So excited to follow you on your journey! Enjoy the ride...

  3. it's practically perfect in every way (and a parasol to boot!)

  4. Haha, yes! I feel like you have had great luck with your airplane seat-mates. Its the perfect name, although Crystal in Cambodia will always have a place in my heart too ;)

  7. Hey Crystal - was just introduced to your blog today by Michelle - LOVE the photos and think the title could not be more perfect. I can't wait to follow you on this journey through Cambodia...I'm jealous of this adventure that you're on and (for now) will have to live vicariously through your stories and beautiful photos.
