A lovely Blog that is well written with a good variety of posts. A great way to explore the expat life and keep in touch with those back home :-)

I love the fact that this blog is a a love story and have been rooting for Molly to get to her husband in America. The postcard pics are interesting and make me want to drive down to Cornwall the next time I have a spare day. I was unaware of the difficulties that falling in love would bring when there are so many hoops to jump through. I hope Molly continues to blog after the move and I wish them so much happiness.

Fantastically written! You take your readers on the emotional rollercoster that is your move to America, you've shared your highs and (unfortunate) lows with everyone and I feel like I've been there with you.

Following Molly's story is exciting, casting me back to my pre-expat days. We'll all be watching from the sidelines as she makes her big step over to the US. A love story watched live! The blog is also highly entertaining, makes me chuckle and can't wait to read her observations on life overseas.
