  • Frankly, I'm Terrified 3 weeks ago The first thing the midwife said to me when she read my file and saw that I was expecting identical twins (and that I had an 18-month-old at home) was: "You'll need to let some things go."She was kind, but firm in her advice. And what she meant was: I won't always have a clean home. I won't always...
  • Freddie's Flowers: Beautiful, Lasting Blooms 3 months ago One of my favorite luxuries is having fresh flowers in the house. They brighten up any room, but I especially love having a bouquet standing smack dab in the middle of our dining room table. It's one of the first things I see when I come through the door, and it brings a little bit of the outside...
  • 18 Months 3 months ago Dear A,Last night, you had a coughing fit. I went to your room and you were sitting up, crying - feeling very sorry for yourself. I picked you up and smoothed your hair back and held you in my lap until your eyes rolled back and your lids began to flutter closed. It was then that I noticed your...
  • 5 Tiny Changes I'm Making to Protect the Environment 5 months ago Shopping more mindfully. I love, love, love new clothes. Love them. Nothing excites me more than walking into Zara, or COS, or & Other Stories or Mango and picking up the newest midi skirt or blazer or perfectly cropped culottes. But. I tire of trendy pieces easily, and they often end up in the...
  • A (Baby-Free!) Spanish Feasting Brunch at Aqua Nueva 6 months ago My best friend likes to say that we live our lives 'in parallel': when I studied abroad in England, she studied abroad in Spain. There, she dated a Juan while I dated John. A few years after I moved to London, my ultimate dream came true and she moved to the city too. We got engaged on the same...

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!
