In The Pipeline: May

Happy May, dear friends!! Oh the bursting of colors everywhere makes me so happy! The last month has been so full of lovely days that I’m practically bursting into color myself. The kids and I spent a week of their spring holidays in Italy. (Be still my heart!) Then we came back to snow and …

River Don, January 2016, In The Pipeline

In The Pipeline: January

Happy New Year, friends!! The sun came out today for the first time since Christmas. It was short-lived but glorious after days and days of rain. I walked one of my usual routes near the River Don just to see how much of it was flooded. Our little pedestrian bridge was closed because the water …

Happy December Y’all! Already this week, we have put up our tree and covered it with new silver-spray painted salt dough ornaments. They are the easiest + happiest Christmas craft ever.

In The Pipeline: November

I shared a whole bunch of autumn photos earlier this week, but maybe my favorite is this one of Simon being so super happy to see his big brother. We skipped school last week to pop over and see Cole at camp. It was the highlight of Simon’s week for sures. October was a busy month …

We’ve had a gorgeous month full of walks that I’ll be highlighting in photos next week, but now that it’s the weekend, I’m baking pumpkin bread and listening to the Pitch Perfect soundtrack on repeat. Here are a few links I’m loving lately: My friend Sarah is launching an …

In The Pipeline: September

This time of year always feels more like New Year’s to me than January 1st. I think it has to do with how many new beginnings happen around the end of August and beginning of September. We’ve had a lot of those in the last month. I dropped Cole off at a camp in the Highlands …

In The Pipeline: August 2015

Friends! Are you asking yourself how it could possibly already be August? Yes, me too! I quickly chronicled our July wanderings for my last two posts, because I knew that I was holding onto quiet days in August for opening up the treasure box that is my memories of The Camino de Santiago in June. …

It’s been rainy and cold in Aberdeen for days. Like, how can it even be summer? I turned my heat back on a couple of days ago. Simon and I have been building fires in the backyard while my family sends me whiny texts about the heat in Arkansas. Cray. The highlight of our week …

In The Pipeline

        Y’all, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t shed some tears this week at my mama’s departure. Saying goodbye is not my favorite. But we had SUCH an amazing visit together. In addition to lots of fun around Aberdeen, we made a little trip to Berwick-Upon-Tweed and York. Thankfully, I …

In The Pipeline

These two photos perfectly illustrate the contrasting days of weather we’ve been having in Scotland this month. Although, the clear, clear blue sky days are pretty rare. Most days definitely look more like this photo. Still though, I flipped the calendar to April this week and am happy to be progressing towards longer days. Plus …

How’s your week been, folks? We’re excited to be officially in  spring. Even though the temperatures are not dramatically warmer, there is a noticeable difference in the landscape.
