Welcome to The Popular Commoners!
I'm not popular and I'm not a commoner....yet.
I'm an American. Thirteen long years ago, I married the love of my life. He's British. And, by extension, his family is British.
This family has a very common last name. However, whenever I would refer to this fact in front of my father-in-law, he would act like he was offended and remind me that it wasn't common. It was popular. I guess he didn't appreciate the implication that he was a commoner.
This blog will chronical my family's journey (both the literal and figurative) from the Rocky Mountains to East Anglia.
Care to join me?
