Scottish Roots

I am finally getting around to posting the pics from our trip to Scotland. I wanted to do this months ago, but, you know... life happens. Since Robert Burns Day was January 25th, I guess my timing couldn't be better. Check out how the Scot's celebrate with a traditional Burns supper.

I have always been proud of my Scottish heritage (insert Mel Gibson shouting FREEDOM at the end of Brave heart here), and I have my parents, and my Dad's cousins in Scotland to thank for that! Every summer, as a child, I would look forward to their fun filled visits. My memories are filled with love, lots of laughter, and yummy treats from overseas. It was fun while it lasted, but eventually, we all became adults, and life got busier and busier, and we don't get to see each other as often we would like to, but thanks to Facebook, we are all reconnected again, and are closer than ever, which brings me to the reason for this post... A Scottish wedding!

When my cousin Karen got engaged, my husband and I thought it would be a great excuse to visit everyone again (wedding crashers), and so we did!

This post is chock full of pics! I couldn't help myself! It's just a little taste of Scotland, a country that is near and dear to my heart, and I highly recommend visiting if you ever get the chance.
