Meet Shermeen...





I'm barely hanging on to my twenties and therefore barely hanging on to the belief that I still have time before I have to do adult things like settle down, buy a house and make some babies. The husband and I have been married since 2009 and so we're constantly asked when we'll stop adopting fur babies and start having some human babies. In true twenty-something fashion, that answer clearly depends on how loud my ovaries are screaming that particular week.

In October 2011 I packed up my life in London, England and headed across the pond to join the husband and pave what we hoped would be our path to "Happily Ever After". I've been in America for three years now and am still struggling to feel like I'm truly settled here, it still feels so temporary. Though perhaps that has more to do with the fact that we've recently moved from Rocky Top Tennessee to Sweet Home Alabama. Can I get a Roll Tide!?

I started Sherms in the Middle when I was in my mid twenties, being the middle child I thought it was cute. Still as an almost thirty year old, I easily feel in the middle of where I am and where I want to be and at times that can be frustrating. Despite it all, I try to remind myself that all those little things in the middle are life too. And are to be enjoyed, endured or to educate.

Follow me as I figure out my life, which is easier said than done. Navigating married life, homesickness, career aspirations and all those little in between moments.

OMG I am so glad I found your blog! I am from Florida and my fiance is from the UK (Reading). We met online in 2005, in person when I was 18 in 2007/2008 (around new years) and will be getting married in December here and then I am moving there. Crazy stuff!! What part of FL is your guy from?

Hey Sarah! Also getting married in December, in NC, and although I am on the other side of things (I am the UK citizen; Ben is the American citizen), I thought it might be nice to say hi. How has your experience of the US to UK visa been?

I'm doing a similar journey, trying to bring my husband to Canada from the USA. It's heartbreaking but I can't wait to be reunited!
