Wow! What a trip!! Who knew you could spend so many hours in the car seeing such a small country! Totally worth it though… We started off with a 2 hour 45 min drive to the southwestern coast of Scotland to catch a 2+ hour ferry to the city of Belfast. After a quick tour […]
Dunnottar Castle… Wow. Breathtaking. This past Saturday a couple of us took a day trip up to Stonehaven on the east coast of Scotland for a quick sightseeing getaway. So glad we went! Felt like real Scotland – not sure how to explain that but that’s the best way I can describe it.
The world renowned festival that is the “Fringe,” has officially come to an end.

Five weeks after our wedding, I moved to the U.K. with my British born husband. To say that it was a transition is an understatement. I could only take two fifty pound bags of my stuff with me, and we had no idea how long we would be living in England. We guessed that the […]
We’re quickly approaching our first overseas trip with TWO children. I’m not sure that I’m feeling super confident about how well it’s going to go, but I thought I’d at least share what we’ve learned in flying with one child and what we’re hoping for while flying with two children.
