- The most British of them all 5 months ago My middle child, my one girl, born on March 7th 2003 is without a doubt the most ‘British’ of all my children. She’s quietly beautiful, reserved, wary of foreign places she knows nothing about, doesn’t like to socialize unless it’s with people she already knows, finds going out too much...
- Mince pies - our tradition, always a reminder 7 months ago I have now been living my life and raising my family in England for 18 years; that’s nearly half my life. There are far too many mixed feelings that I could talk about, why I have them and why they will probably never fade. This is one reason I started this blog. A place where […] The post...
- An American in Helsinki 8 months ago For my 45th birthday, my husband whisked me off to Gatwick, sans enfants, walked me blindfolded (not literally) through to the gate where, to my delight, I saw we were about to board a plane set for Helsinki, Finland. Amazing! What a fabulous birthday surprise. I never would have thought I’d...
- An odd feeling this Thanksgiving 9 months ago Happy Thanksgiving everyone from over here in the UK! I can’t help but feel that this year there is an odd feeling surrounding Thanksgiving with a lot of people struggling to find something to give thanks for. It’s been one hell of a year, that’s for sure. I’m thankful for the following: My...
- Halloween in the UK 9 months ago Well, my work is done. You are welcome. Tee hee.

Over 10 years ago, I introduced Halloween and...

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.
