I am originally a Florida girl, but made Washington, DC my home before settling in Edinburgh, Scotland. I was seduced by an accent and moved to the UK, over two years ago, with my husband. Cheers Blondie is my highly entertaining expat blog that shares my adventures of living abroad and pokes fun at the cultural differences between America and the UK. I write about my day-to-day life in Scotland, traveling around Europe and life as a wife to a Scot.
