Hello, dear friends and readers!

You may have noticed some differences to this page from the last time you visited. Who is this Girl, Here and There and what happened to The Wandering Belle?

Well, folks, the truth is that the Belle is no longer wandering. She's rather stationary these days. It happens to us all, doesn't it? This change has been a long time coming--for months now I've felt that this space didn't really reflect where my life is going. When I started this little blog, I was a student on a one-year program with a million plans for where I'd go next. I was wandering, dagnabbit, and I wasn't planning on stopping. They say that making plans is the easiest way to make God laugh, don't they? So here I am, nearly three years on from my original move, with a husband and a Scottish life unrolling before me. And this blog has to grow and adapt with the changes in my life. It is, after all, a blog about my life.

Why Girl, Here and There? I chose the new name because I feel it encapsulates what life is like for an international girl. My future and self are here but there will always be a part of me there, in that strange fantastic land known as Florida. I'm a bit of here and there, and I've accepted that it'll always be that way.

I'll still be here, and on the many social media sites I've always been. I've got a spiffy new name (grlhereandthere** on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) and a more settled sense of blog-self, that's all. (Does that make any sense?) I may not be as much of a wanderer as I once was, but sometimes staying put is the biggest adventure.


**Yes, I know that there is no "i" in "girl." You can blame Twitter for that. Now I get to be all late 90s chat-speak cool. You know you're jealous.


  1. I thought you'd gone without saying goodbye.

    1. Not gone, just distracted by every day life! :)

  2. Thoughts on your new blog theme and picture: PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY. SO MUCH PRETTY. Love the new look! xx

    1. You're so sweet, Kels! I'm a bit obsessed with it myself! xx


Thanks for taking the time to comment! It's well and truly appreciated. :)
