Mississippi Girl Lands in the UK – 2012

September 22, 2014

American girl moves to London

And it’s official…We’re getting married and I’m moving to England! We often say the last few years have truly been a whirlwind and some even say it’s somewhat of a fairytale. Any way I look at it it’s one of the happiest times in my life. So I resigned from my sales position, packed a lot boxes and geared up for a life changing move across the pond! And l will never forget preparing Miss Sally (my 9 year old Chihuahua) for acceptance into the UK – shots, microchip, physicals, lots of paperwork and a long journey spent in cargo.

We lived in a quintessential British town in the north during my first 9 months in the UK. It allowed me to adapt to the cultural differences which I’ll relive soon and also spend time getting to know my new in-laws. Everyone was so welcoming and I couldn’t have asked for a better family to marry into! I must say their hospitality reminds me of all my years spent in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.

In my blog you’ll learn the story of a southern girl now living in London and her quest to bring southern iced tea to the UK while keeping you updated on Sweet Miss Sally (the inspiration behind my company name)!
