Guest Post and a Nomination!

Happy Tuesday!  Do you know why I love Tuesdays?
Because it's Rib Night at our local pub!
£10 for a full rack of ribs and fries/chips.  And they have fried onion strings, too!
And they know that I like my Pinot Grigio Blush with two cubes of ice. 
(Don't judge.  I know it's the new White Zinfandel, but I still like it.)

Today I'm editing my photos from the London Marathon on Sunday.
What a fantastic day?  I can't wait to tell you all about it.  
In the mean time, you can find me guest posting at Betsy Transatlantically 

I discovered Betsy's blog when we were first considering moving to the UK and found it invaluable.
She is also one of the first people I met in London at an expat bloggers lunch.  
She is currently living in the US and planning a storybook wedding to her own man with an accent.

When she asked me to contribute our story of navigating the Visa process,
I was thrilled.  If you are visiting from Betsy's blog, then you already know this; 
Betsy is intelligent, articulate, brave and wise beyond her years.  
 Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you will stay awhile and take a look around. 
If you have any specific questions about our visa dance, then please contact me.  I'll be happy to help.  
If on the off chance, you haven't seen Betsy's blog yet then head over there posthaste. 

I love my little corner of the internet.  I'm always shocked and delighted to discover that others besides my mom actually read my blog.  Imagine my delight yesterday when I got this great news.
