Sometimes I get reeeeally emotional and miss Scotland terribly.
Have you ever arrived somewhere and just KNEW in your heart of hearts, that is where you belong? That's how I felt the moment I stepped foot on the Royal Mile, seeing Edinburgh Castle high up on the crag at one end, and knowing down at the other end we would soon see Holyrood Palace. Even though I surprised my momma with this trip because it was her dream vacation, I ended up falling in love with Scotland myself.
I took this photo the morning my mom and I arrived in Edinburgh, and it was one of our first amazing views in such an incredible city. I can't wait to go back in the future, this time accompanied by my daughter also, so she can see the beautiful city where her middle name comes from - Edin, (pronounced the same as Eden and phonetically correct, actually) - because naming a baby Eleanor Edinburgh is bordering on child abuse.
