Hey friends! I realize this month’s goal post is a littttlleeee bit late. Like, over a week. But it’s fine.
This might seem like a cop-out, but my main goal for May is to get enough sleep. Between traveling to Scotland for over a week and finishing up training for (and running) a half marathon at the end of the month, I’m guessing May will be tiring. I want to make sure I get to bed at a reasonable time and stay functioning this month!
Speaking of Scotland…
We’re GOING TO SCOTLAND! This fact still hasn’t really hit me, even though we leave tomorrow… A lot of people have been asking us “Why Scotland?” and our pretty consistent answer has been “Because our friends invited us!” You see, our friends Tanya and Kevin had been planning a trip to Europe and invited us to join them while they toured around Ireland and Scotland. Nate and I couldn’t swing missing two weeks of work, but we made the decision over Thai dinner to meet them when they got to Scotland! How we came to the conclusion: we have the funds, we have the energy, we don’t have children… and when will this opportunity ever happen again? You only live ONCE!
I had never dreamed of visiting Scotland (I picture myself more of an Italy, Greece and Spain kind of gal), but since we made the leap (aka: bought plane tickets) in late March, I’ve slowly been getting more excited. We’ve been studying up on the country: reading atlas’s to visualize our driving route, looking at pictures of the hundreds of castles, ect. I’ll be honest and say I pretty much thought it WAS Ireland at first, with the food and accents and rolling countryside and all haha =) But I’m excited to learn more while we are there!
Ok, so I haven’t packed yet, but I have thought of an Instagram hashtag for our trip! If you want to follow along, you can find our pictures at #exploreScotland13 – I’ll obviously be taking lots of pictures, but waiting to post them until we can find internet (at cute little internet cafes, right? that might be the part I’m most excited for… =) )
I do have some scheduled blog posts, but I won’t be answering emails until May 20th, so please be patient! Thank you!
And see ya on the flipside!
