    I have to admit to a serious case of envy. Scotland is the only place on my bucket list :D Very handsome young man of yours in a kilt also.

    Just a bit envious. It’s so festive! And Edinburgh is by far my favourite place away from home.

    I’m not sure which I envy more–your life in Edinburgh or your kilt-wearing husband! Just discovered your website and love it all. My favourite Xmas place here in Kingston, ON? The skating rink at the City Market (photos on my blog).

      Haha John is a jem, who really shines when he gets dancing! Great blog ~ I’ve never been to Kingston, but I spent a lot of time in Toronto and Waterloo during my degrees! LOVE the boot socks you pictured on the blog, even if they aren’t hand-knit. Inspires some wardrobe ideas of my own…

  5. Nice piece of work
