Hi, I am Ashley and welcome to Cheers Blondie!

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.

A few things to know about me:

  1. I am from the sunshine state and I complain about the lack of sun in Scotland, A LOT.
  2. I am not an outdoorsy girl, my idea of an outside activity is a rooftop bar.
  3. I am obsessed with castles and royalty.
  4. I hate being called a Yank.
  5. I love double-decker busses and think it’s the ideal way to commute.

Here are some interviews with me and articles about the good, the bad and the ugly of being an expat!
