  • Top Tips on Getting Stuff Done 1 week ago People sometimes ask me “how do you do it?” Meaning, how do I manage to run a design business full-time with three children, blog regularly, keep on top of emails, keep up with social media, manage a household as the main child carer, sell books, and organize fundraising events? Well I thought...
  • The older they get.... my three cross cultural kids 1 week ago Raising cross cultural kids means different things at different times during their lives. It’s hard to say how much my American-ness influenced them when they were babies. I’d like to think there was an American influence but in reality, maybe not so much. I do know that before my eldest went...
  • The Joy of Living by the sea in England 3 weeks ago The joy of living by the sea in England really comes to light during the summer months. It’s been an incredibly busy time with work and this past weekend was jam packed both days! Didn’t get any R&R but I did manage to enjoy a few minutes on a lunch break to sit quietly and […] The post The...
  • It's the little things that make you happy when living in England 3 months ago Living in England as an American is mostly good. It takes a long time to learn how things are done, adapt, fit in, find friends, feel at home, and love the way of life here. It’s not easy, but it does get easier. I love talking to newbies, people who are struggling, people who need […] The post...
  • School uniform - a life saver or a no no? 3 months ago Here in England, most State schools require pupils to where a uniform or at least a ‘jumper’ (sweater) with the school’s logo or emblem.

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.
