The person who nominated me described Angloyankophile as, "a lovely mix of life". And that's what I seek to promote on my blog: the highs, as well as the lows. Sometimes, that might mean a post about grief, nestled between posts about a great restaurant I just discovered, or new travel destination I'm really excited about. I try to keep things ... real. Because even if we're grieving or sad or low, it doesn't mean we can't celebrate joy. Or the little triumphs we have every day. Life goes on. Angloyankophile is a testament to that. Over the years, Angloyankophile has become a community (albeit a small one) of readers, both new and old, who contribute their stories and their experiences in the comments as a reaction to my words. And I'm so grateful for this space - for the connections made.
