Gettin' in Touch with My Roots

-a weekend away with my husband
-boys happily settled at their Nana's
-my uncle's cabin on the lake
-waking late to mountain air coming through the open windows
-driving back mountain roads with the windows down
-men in kilts throwing large objects
-little boys in kilts, shirtless and wrestling
-little girls in tartan and knee socks, dancing
-whole families decked out in their clan's tartan
-Freedom!!!
-Yes, I'm Scottish.
-another morning of mountain air
-biscuits and gravy for breakfast on the deck
-returning to normal life, just a little more centered

Sounds wonderful. People over here don't quite believe me when I say that parts of America are more Scottish than Scotland. And then I tell them my dad plays the bagpipes, and my aunt used to dance at the games. They get a kick out of that.

I'm so glad you had a good time away.
