30 Things to be Thankful For in Scotland

As you’ll soon be reading- Thanksgiving turned out really well.  But I was a little too stressed planning out the day, then executing the day, then being exhausted to post before November came to a close.  I wanted to be a little more optimistic and share 30 things I’m thankful for in Scotland.

  1. New friends that are thoughtful and sweet.
  2. Weekly golf lessons in golf Mecca.
  3. Being able to let Stella off leash all day every day.
  4. Sewing class and the future possibility of making a kilt.
  5. Men in kilts- you can’t help but smile.
  6. My hard working husband that allows me to be a lady of leisure.
  7. More time for books and book club.
  8. An excuse to invest in Barbour.
