Hello everyone!  Thank you for visiting my site.  My name is Michelle, I’m a mom of 2 and a wife to an Englishman.  I am originally from Chicago and moved to England in September 2009 to get my Masters Degree.  I studied at City University London in Communities, Organisations and Social Change.

A few months after living here I thought it would be good to meet some new people so I decided to do some online dating.  Little did I know that the second person I was to have a date with turned out to be my husband.  Flash forward 8.5 years and we are married, with 2 kids and moved to the East Midlands to be closer to his family.

I’ve recently been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is a chronic pain illness.  This blog will touch on my life with this condition as well as normal day to day life.  Hopefully, you will find support, humour, and enjoyment in my stories.
