- Glorious Britain in Spring time 5 days ago Spring in Britain is definitely my favorite season. Summer is always disappointing no matter what because we expect it to be hot and it rarely ever is. Winter is just cold and damp, and Autumn marks the end of summer – most times before it even begins. So Spring is perfect because if the weather...
- The British Accent 2 weeks ago I was talking about accents the other day with a Canadian friend who used to live here but repatriated a few years ago. She was saying how British children sound so posh and sophisticated due to their accents. I used to think that too! Until I had children who speak with a British accent….. !...
- An eventful March - birthdays, NHS and fundraising! 2 months ago Gosh this month has been full of birthdays, hospital visits, a surprise surgery and lots of work. I think I’ve re-defined my own definition of busy! Through it all, we’ve been safe in the knowledge that the National Health Service (NHS) here in Britain is here to help no matter what the hour or...
- Understanding how to be British but still American through and through 2 months ago Inspired by a blog post by Amanda van Mulligen, a British expat in the Netherlands, this post is about the fact that while being American through and through, I mostly (probably not completely just yet) understand and really get what it means to be British. And, shock horror! I sometimes really...
- Wise Tales - Living the USA Dream 2 months ago When I casually said to my husband “I want to live somewhere hot” one freezing winters day back in the UK, I never imagined myself living as an Expat in North Carolina……Never mind that we thought we were heading for Dallas until 2 months prior to leaving! We are actually in Cornelius,...

I love Meghan's Bringing Up Brits Blog, always relevant, honest and thought provoking posts! Meghan got the conversation going on the topic of raising your children in a country that is not your own, this topic is relevant wherever you are doing this which is why her blog is so impactful. Meghan has created a community through her book and blog and that makes a lot of people feel more at home in their adopted country, the UK.

I love reading Meg's blog! It is witty, funny and it makes me feel far less isolated living in England. Her blog is very relevant to me even though I do not raise my kids in England, I get great comfort from the feeling I am not alone out there. She has really built a name for herself as an expert with her blog, book and TV guest appearances! You really deserve to win Meg - good luck!

I love the discussion about raising your kids in a different country than the one you were born in yourself. I'm a Brit in the Netherlands essentially raising Dutch kids and Meghan's blog about raising her kids as an American in Britain is eye opening and entertaining. Great insights into parenting in a foreign country.

Great writing by Meg and a great and am sure, very well needed, blog. For those who move to the UK, this must be a really helpful and supportive read. Likewise, for those who are born and bred in the UK, it most certainly creates a whole new perspective around the difficulties people face when moving here. Great stuff.

This blog is really well-written and always interesting. I am not an expat but I enjoy reading about life in this country from another perspective.
