Say What?!

  Travel. Language Barriers. When you travel there is bound to be some type of hilarious encounter. Quite often due to a breakdown in communication between languages. But what if that breakdown is in your native language? Well, that can make it unexpected and garner even more giggles! It's Monday, so I thought that if [...]

What does your chill time look like?

  Chill. Relax. Chillax. Where, or when, or how, or with whom, do you find this place? That's what Nikki over at Flying Through Water has asked us to ponder this week. Originally, I thought I'd say yoga. Yoga. I shared a little about how yoga has been transformative in my life in this post. [...]

Glasgow. I've already shared that I absolutely loved Glasgow. But in case you missed it... I loved Glasgow. My time there was much too brief. If you are new to my blog, during my week in Scotland, two days were to be spent in Glasgow. However, they were mainly to be a home base for [...]
