Thankful

Let’s discuss my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. This year I spent the day like usual. Went to work, donned my sombrero, sipped margaritas then spent the night at a karaoke bar. Ok, so Scotland may have confused Thanksgiving with Cinco de Mayo. But considering this was the first time I ever worked a Thanksgiving in my… Read More Thankful

Beaches

Don’t worry I’m not going to break out into a Bette Midler medley. This is about the beautiful sandy beaches of St. Andrews. Now while walking on them I might have to wear jeans, a sweater, socks, a hat….you get the idea 🙂 But they sure are pretty. And I’m not thinking of or stalking pics… Read More Beaches

The Great Outdoors

Once upon a time an American girl thought she had grown up in the smallest place on earth, Gainesville, FL. Then she moved to St. Andrews, Scotland. Thank goodness it’s beautiful and the accents are far better than ACRs (Alachua County Residents). Sorry hometown, but it’s true! St. Andrews has been my home for a… Read More The Great Outdoors

Culture Shock

Once returning from England I started to settle into my new routine of  job hunting, the occasional evening golf session and my horrible driving lessons that usually end in a few choice words and minor tantrums. Scott says we will laugh about it some day, but all I want to do is drive into whatever… Read More Culture Shock
