Less than a month ago, I was lucky enough to visit Ireland, Scotland and England. I absolutely loved, loved, loved Scotland. If I wasn’t married to my wonderful, incognito redneck, I would’ve begged some poor, unfortunate Scottish soul to marry me just so I could’ve stayed. Instead, I tried to soak in every single second of it while I was there, almost cried when I left, and started looking toward the future of when I would be back.
I did a day tour with Rabbies Tours and visited Alnwick Castle and the Scottish Coast. The views were amazing, there was plenty of time to stroll around the castle, venture into the towns, and fill your camera with amazing photos. I stayed in Edinburgh at the Hilton, which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I love the cobblestone streets, the bakeries, stores, and restaurants that line the streets. The local people are super friendly, which is a major bonus in my book. I really detest jerks, which is why I live in a small community where people still wave at you when you drive by or check on you while you are out for a walk – just to make sure you don’t need a ride. Yeah, my little town rocks, too. I was lucky to get my incognito redneck to put a ring on it. I love the little town where he grew up, which has become our home.
If you’re wondering why I call him my incognito redneck it’s because my husband looks normal, dresses like any normal human being, doesn’t own a single pair of overalls, has all of his teeth, doesn’t chew on ‘baccer, but … he has redneck tendencies that come out from time to time when he fixes stuff around the house. Just sayin’.
So, if you have the opportunity to visit Scotland, I’d tell you to go for it. Life is about pursuing your dreams, no matter how crazy everyone thinks they are, making memories that will last a lifetime, and living your best life. Take the trips, taste the food, soak in the different culture and just … live. Chase your rainbow, ladies and gents. Always.
Much love, y’all!
