Lots of fresh air yesterday... crazy wind made for some insane waves and a little bit of sandblasting too. The sunset looks peaceful but I literally had to pick the sand out my mouth after 😂
This is definitely one of the best things I’ve read all quarantine!!
The beach is always a good idea!! ☀️ 🏝 ☀️
Here’s what I’m learning through social isolation: Those hard ass green avocados that feel like rocks at the store, they ripen a lot quicker than you expect. I will be a brunette by the end of this. 🙄 You can NEVER own enough leggings. A bottle of bourbon does NOT last nearly as long as you think. It’s so nice to think about someone, and then send a text and have a conversation to let that person know you’re thinking of them. How did we get away from doing this? How many times does someone come into your mind and then you’re taken away by another thought or something you have to do. I texted my best friend’s sister tonight to check in and she wrote back, “I was JUST thinking about you.” I’m loving this time of reconnection. I didn’t realize how effing disorganized I have become. While I have not yet Marie Kondo’d my drawers again, I have had to work on my taxes and write out my expenses from last year. These expenses (as well as pay stubs and receipts) sat in a jcrew shopping bag taunting me from across the room for who knows how long. Well, I’ve sorted half of the bag, and not only do I feel relieved, I also found my car title and all my 401k paperwork (not that it’s worth anything anymore). Needless to say, I purchased some file folders on amazon prime, and they’ll be here by April 23rd 😂 I still have some time to get organized. Marco Polo might be the best app ever. Tonight I gave my good friend and old college neighbor a virtual tour of my apartment. He was like, “hey, I’ve never seen where you live.” We fixed that. I learned last night how insomnia can drive you nutty! That was one night of not sleeping. I’m sorry for all of you who struggle with this on a nightly basis and who are also dealing with this now. We all have a lot on our minds! Everyone is having their days! Most days I feel like I’ve got this, but it’s ebbs and flows, right? The nice thing and the main takeaway is WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! Literally! Worldwide TOGETHER! It’s so nice to see people unite and support each other. We may feel like we’re losing a lot, but we sure are learning a lot too!! We are resilient by nature and we will get through this! ❤️❤️❤️
Other Isle of Skye favorites... I kinda liked it there 😍
Some of my favorites from our drive around the Isle of Skye.
Isle of Skye is magical!! The people have so much pride and love for their land. You can see why... it’s certainly easy to appreciate such natural beauty. People told us Fairy Glen was special and we just had to go and see for ourselves. Someone even told us the hairs on our arms would stand up. Might’ve had something to do with the wind, but they certainly did!!
Left Edinburgh around 11:30 yesterday and began the 4 1/2 hour drive to Isle of Skye. We seemed to encounter every possible weather pattern along the way - sun, wind, rain, sleet, hail! It was beautiful nonetheless, and the brave Scots were still bundled up in rain and winter gear and out for their walks through the highlands. We finally made it here around 7pm last night, so that 4 1/2 hr drive took a little longer than the published time. 😳 🏴
