Over the course of the next few weeks, my husband and I are venturing to England and Scotland to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary in the land of our ancestors. In case you couldn’t tell by my hair color, green eyes, and fiery personality, my family hails from the Scottish Highlands and the Lowlands, as do some of my husband’s ancestors, and we are so excited to see the land our family came from, and walk in their footsteps. I may not be posting as often as I normally do, but rest assured that once I return you’ll be basking in the incredible beauty of Scotland as though you were right there walking through glens and castles with us.
We will be 6 beautiful cities in Scotland, and 2 in England, on our way up to Scotland. I can’t tell you how incredibly excited I am to finally be visiting my ancestral home. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had a strange longing to visit Scotland, that manifested itself in a slight obsession with all things Scottish. I’ve even attended the Alma Highlands Festival and the Scottish Games here in Michigan religiously for the past 15 years. You can keep an eye on my instagram, @AnnieWearsit and @AnnieFairfax to see where I am.
Expect to see lots of travel guides and photography journals upon my return home. In the meantime, I won’t be posting much beyond what I already have scheduled out, because I want to live in the moment with my husband and celebrate our first five years as husband and wife together in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Thank you for understanding.
