A daily photo-blog of my life as an American transplanted in the UK.

Y4 - 170/365: Happy Mother's Day, UK!!
The day began with a lovely lie-in, courtesy hubby, and when I finally did emerge I was greeted with kisses and some super special toast! I love my boys!
We then spent a bit of time this afternoon at Josie & David's along with Em, Daz & miss Amy. The kids had us in stitches pretending to nap in the corner.
Then tonight, for the first time, Ryan had the chance to speak to his Grandad Pat in America (who couldn't seem to sort his tablet so his image wasn't sideways...typical Dad). Admittedly I don't have the best relationship anymore in terms of closeness with my Dad, but it was nice to see he was making even just a small effort at interacting with his grandson.
The day's end has still left me feeling very grateful with the people in my life -- both in this country and abroad.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
