In England Valentine's is a couple's celebration. It's not a holiday that traditionally involves the whole family. I certainly didn't make a big deal of it with our kids anyway. Rob and I are not a big showy couple either though, a simple card and gift would be exchanged and we'd often chose a meal … Continue reading Valentines
Our 3 week England trip began 16th December 2018. We were travelling back to the UK to renew our current immigration visas. The kids schools longest break is the summer and by then the visas would have expired, so the Christmas break was the next best time to go, even though we were fully expecting … Continue reading England

Rob and I knew no different, Poppy was our first and what we thought "difficult" baby. … Continue reading Fundraising Fun!

My bridesmaid journey with Emma started before I'd even left to live in Florida. Visiting wedding … Continue reading #Bridesquad – My how to!
I've spent 3 whole days back in Birmingham and I already feel myself changing. I greeted my bestie (Who I've not seen since July 2017) in the middle of Primark underwear section with "Alright Bird" to which she replied "How am ya?" 😂 I've got used to hearing "Hey girl" over in Florida. So quickly … Continue reading Being a Brummie, my week so far

My hair has gone through a few phases since moving over here and I feel finally I'm happy with it! I started out with long box coloured blonde hair, with a fringe (bangs).
