  • Lime Wood Hotel & Spa, New Forest 5 days ago I woke before John - before dawn, in fact - at 5:45, when it was still pitch black outside. But with the clocks changing overnight, it felt like 6:45, and, being an early riser, I began to fidget under the sheets - the down duvet crinkling around me like a weightless cloud of feathers.It was dark,...
  • Indefinite Leave to Remain 6 days ago So, it's been a pretty crazy and momentous few weeks for me ... first, after months of nagging from John, I finally signed up for and passed my UK driving theory test.Whew! That test was hard, compared to the US version (I also found it a little bewildering and intimidating to be subjected to...
  • Fall Haul 3 weeks ago I was all "bah-humbug" about the arrival of fall, but then I saw this display of decorative gourds and flowers in autumnal colors at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers last week and it was like - bam! - I was hit with the pumpkin spice stick. Suddenly, everything around me was wonderful: the...
  • The Big Reveal: Our Guest Bathroom Before and After 2 months ago When we were house hunting, having a second bathroom was on my dream list - and most of the houses we saw only had one (or a main bathroom upstairs and a single toilet downstairs, usually tucked behind the kitchen, which I hated).Along with a first floor bathroom (that's the second floor, for my...
  • Relationship Goals 3 months ago I can count the number of times I've thrown up in my adult life on one hand.Really.Two of those times were in front of John. And both of those times, he held back my hair, stroked my back, and whispered encouragement like, "Oh, you poor thing. Oh, bad luck, sweetie. I'm sorry. I'm sorry,...

Your blog entries are so well written that I'm wondering if you were a professional writer. You seem to have a vast interest in many different things and you do not just describe what is obvious to the eyes, but also reflect humanity along the way - in a positive manner. There are posts that bring tears to my eyes and leave me unsettled for the rest of the day, and there are ones so hilarious that I burst out uncontrollable laughter. You seem to enjoy your life tremendously living in a foreign country and yet your heart still belongs to your motherland, the USA - a patriot. I don't think you are a food or arts critic but your reviews of restaurants and concerts are honest, genuine and unbiased. After reading them, I always have an urge to try that restaurant at once or wish I had been to that concert with you. You must have parents who encouraged a well-rounded education and you are now making a good living to afford your life style. I applaud you, I envy you and I hope you will never lose your interest in writing and your passion for life, and that your writing would make a difference in this world.

Angloyankophile is one of my go-to blogs to read about London. It's a great general lifestyle blog as well. I love the restaurant tips, the concert suggestions, the fashion / shopping tips (write more of these please!) and the overall tone of the blog. I read most blogs through feedly and whenever I see that Angloyankophile has been updated, it's the first thing I'll read.

This is a must-read blog from one of the best-written and most interesting, hip, funny, and downright endearing bloggers I have come across. Covering an array of topics, ranging from eateries across London and the UK, relationship and family matters, along with honest and tactful reviews of trendy hot spots, theater, music, and fashion, and of course the continual push and pull of being from two separate countries and cultures, Angloyankophile is a down-to-earth and extremely well-written blog. Definitely a blog I visit frequently and thoroughly enjoy, and I appreciate the author's sense of finding belonging and blending into multiple cultures, while doing so with poise, intellectual curiosity, and a lot of heart. I love this blog!
