Hello, and welcome to my ickle blog!
My name is Kerstin (pronounced “Sherstin” – the Swedish way), and I’m a 30-something mum to my beautiful Genevieve (or Evie to her friends) and Hank the Yank (aka “Henry”). I’m also wife to Damyan, and “boss” to Milo the loopy Labrador and Monty the Ragdoll cat.
We used to live in sunny Brighton, on the South Coast of England, but in October 2011 moved Stateside to pursue my husband’s dream job, working for Microsoft in Seattle.
I started this blog as a way to document everything that happens throughout the planning and packing stage, my transition from “Mum” to “Mom” (gasp!), and our experiences as a family adjusting to a completely different culture and lifestyle.
I hope you enjoy reading about our adventure as much as we enjoy living it!
Life is either a great adventure, or nothing!
