Who is The Yank?
Hiya, I’m Becky! I’m originally from western Pennsylvania, but after graduating from college, I lived in Indiana and Washington state. In the fall of 2011, I moved to England to begin a new chapter and fulfill two of my life goals of living abroad again and getting my Masters degree. I completed my dissertation in September 2012 and graduated in December 2012.
I’d be kidding you if I acted like I randomly chose Yorkshire as the English region where I would live and study. So, what really drew me here? This American girl met a really amazing British guy, who swept me off my feet in 2010. Yep, we should probably have a movie made after us…oh wait, that’s already been done. 😉
After many months of a long-distance relationship, we’ve settled into life together in West Yorkshire.
And just over a year later, in December 2012, we made it official with a wedding in the Dominican Republic with our closest family and friends!
And a year after our wedding, in December 2013, we welcomed our beautiful daughter into our life.
Needless to say, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind, but we couldn’t imagine it any other way.
