- Things I forgot about being an American living in the U.K. 2 months ago It’s been a while since I posted on here and, oh look! It’s 2019 all of a sudden. I’ve now been living in the U.K. for 20 years. That’s nearly as long as I had lived in the States.

- Talks I enjoyed and learned from at FIGT 2018 9 months ago One of the great joys in life (and in work) is learning and expanding on what we might already know (or not know) but seeing things afresh or from new perspectives.

- Families in Global Transition 10 months ago Last month, from March 8 to the 10th, I spent three wonderful, life affirming days at the Families in Global Transition (FIGT) annual conference.

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.
