Just like on Sesame Street, today is brought to us by a number and that number is three. Why? Well, there are many reasons.
Kaila is three weeks old,
Peter and I have been married for exactly three years,
we are now a family of three,
and all three of us are British citizens!
That’s right, today I became a British citizen in a private ceremony at our local registry office. The ceremony was short, sweet, and mostly consisted of me confirming allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and vowing to be an upstanding citizen of the United Kingdom. Peter, Kaila, and my mom were all able to join me for this big event.
Now don’t worry, I haven’t turned my back on the US. Just because I’ve acquired British citizenship doesn’t mean I’ve lost my American citizenship. In fact, Kaila and I are both dual citizens of both the US and the UK. Pretty cool!
