About Me


Welcome to my tiny corner of the interwebs! I’m Clarissa – an American expat living in the UK with my husband Andrew, and our two cats. I love cozy spaces, coffee shops, good restaurants, libraries, parks, museums, and universities (in no particular order). This blog started as an assignment for one of my courses in Library and Information Science, but it has since become my creative outlet. I blog about travel, the adventures of expat life, and the place we call home.

Thanks for following along!


words I live by:

“To laugh often and much: To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
