Hi! I'm Jaime. I'm originally from just south of Seattle in Washington state and I live in North East London with my husband, toddler son, and identical baby boy twins.

I'm currently on maternity leave from my job in book publishing, but I'm also a freelance journalist, stylist and photographer. You can read examples of my published work here and here.

I've lived in London for over a decade. Living in the UK is a dream come true for me. As a teen, I had a postcard of the Cotswolds taped to my bedside table so that it'd be the last thing I'd see before I closed my eyes at night.

While completing my undergraduate degree at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, I studied abroad at the University of Oxford (fun fact: I studied Wordsworth with Jonathan Wordsworth, Wordsworth's great-great-great nephew!), where I met my now-husband.

After graduating from Mount Holyoke, I completed a Master's Degree in Renaissance Literature at the University of York.

Soon after, I headed down to London to ride out the last few months of my student visa, hoping to secure an internship in publishing. I began my publishing career at two, well-known international publishers before leaving my role to work for an illustrated art book publisher.

I started writing this blog in 2010, when I felt torn about where I wanted to live. I thought it would help me decide if I wrote about all the highs and lows of my experiences in the US and UK. But it hasn't made my decision any easier - it's just made me realize how incredibly lucky I am.

This is my story. These are my adventures.

Thank you for reading. xo
