We’ve been in Scotland now for nearly a month. I hardly know where to begin. I have so much to catch you all up on, and I want you all to be able to share in our journey. Lack of writing has not been from desire, but rather from a lack of internet access and a general feeling of craziness as we settle into our new lives.
We love it here. I know it’s been only a month and we are still very much in the honeymoon stage, but already I can see this place as being a place of healing for our family.
What is there to say about a place where this is just walking distance from your home?
The beach, 12th century ruins, a castle, and gorgeous countryside are literally just out our front door.
Words fail me.
We are so incredibly blessed.
A couple of weekends ago when we headed up to the beach on a nice Sunday afternoon, I felt myself just breathing in the sea air, the beauty. Almost instinctively I felt the stress of the past few months slowly dissipating. There is something about sea air that will do that to you.
And perhaps, just perhaps, the mayhem and trials of our year allow me to appreciate this all the more?
I think so.
There is so much to write, and I look forward to taking you along on our journey.
After months of lack of structure and routine, we are settling down now and finding a new normal. And oh what a blessing that is.
Aaaahhh. So peaceful to have routines. Kind of like that beach.
Everything is being reevaluated. From basic home routines, to developing habits in our children (and me!), to…well, everything. If you all don’t mind, I’ll just bring you along for the ride.
And of course there will always be pictures of Scotland. That little tiny country that holds so much beauty and mystery.
I’ve missed writing. And I’ve missed all of you too.
I’m glad to be back.
