Our country is young…. crazy young.
I didn’t exactly learn this lesson on THIS trip….
…but check out some of these castles and ruins. 500-600 years old. I remember our country’s bicentennial like it was yesterday. (this could be because my mom dressed my sisters and me up in period 1776 costumes complete with bonnets….but I digress)
No, I didn’t LEARN that our country is crazy young on this trip – I was just reminded of this fact.
The first time this really hit home was 2001 when we were here:
We were in The Colosseum the same week that Market Square Arena was demolished.
Poof…. just like that….
A 27 year old building – demolished. Disposable Construction…
27 years… hmmm.

One year ago today, I boarded a plane destined for the motherland… Scotland.
What a bad blogger, I never shared my pictures or stories or lessons from this amazing trip.
I think I was just overwhelmed…. So many lessons and meals, so much beauty, such memories with family. Where does one start?
Let’s start with this little dreamboat…
The simplicity, the green lawn, the gardens, the stone fence, the little greenhouse.
I wanted to move in (to the house, not the greenhouse..)
