I’m an American expat who lived in Belgium for ten years before I was offered the chance to live in the UK in 2013. Once upon a time, this blog was called JessinBelgium (before that became geographically confusing). And Jess-On-Thames was born.
Asking me where “home” is increasingly becomes a challenge. I’ve lived in 13 US states. I studied in Paris, Washington DC and upstate New York. I used to work in EU politics and now work in film production and web design for a London-based creative agency. I love special event planning. I spend way too much time watching TV and consider frequent trips to bookstores to be time very well spent. I wish I was more adventurous and drink bold wines to make up for it. I’m devoted to my two cats, but plot to add a proper dog to that equation one day (proper dogs being ones that do not fit in a handbag).
Lots of what I come across on my travels/love/obsess over/covet/plan on stealing (no, not really) can be found within this blog. Thank you so much for reading.
