One note

I realize it has been a little one note here lately, as it's reflecting what's going on in my brain. But believe it or not, there are some breaks between the grief.

Dave and I took a lot of walks and a lot of drives and saw and ate many beautiful things.  In some ways, driving around Scotland has been restorative.  It is such a beautiful country.  The weather usually sucks balls, but the landscape is W-O-W.  I especially love all the animals that dot the country side.  As much as I'm a city girl, I do like spending time in the country (but as Dave will attest, not too much time!).

This past summer, we were lucky enough to get a free stay in a posh hotel (all the bells and whistles included) and it was in the very pretty area of Pertshire.  We ate and drank a lot and genuinely enjoyed each other's company.  We sped down winding country roads and walked around in the rain.  The pic at the beginning of this post was taken on one of our jaunts.

The pic to the right is of the grounds of the hotel where we stayed.  There was even a lake the back of the property and it was truly stunning.

In addition to getting close to nature, we kayaked, went hill walking and mountain climbing, did some touristy stuff, ate a lot of great food and talked a lot.  I think we're starting to heal. 

I'm not feeling particularly word today so I'll let the pictures do the talking:

Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Good ole Edinburgh Castle

My beardy honey in a kayak


I can't remember where we were.


  1. You look like you could be at the Falls of Dochart by Loch Tay? Maybe? I love driving about in Scotland although we do seem to frequently end up at a farm gate with no way to turn round - we call these our little adventures instead of mistakes!

  2. I almost thought that pic of Dave in the wetsuit was photoshopped!

  3. It's the Falls of Dochart at Killin :) It's beautiful there! Big hugs to you sis xxx

  4. beautiful pictures, glad to read you guys are having fun and investing us time together.

  5. Thanks for the compliments and identifying the place. We were quite lucky this summer.
