Scotland 2014: A Video Diary

Oh hey, guys. It’s been awhile, and I’d like to say I spent the whole time working on this video, but that would be a lie, and I can’t lie to you all. Please welcome me back. Thank you.

As probably most of you know, my mom, dad, and I travelled to Scotland in July for the Turnbull Gathering, a family reunion of my mom’s “clan” in Hawick, Scotland.

This past weekend, the Turnbull crew took her out to Great Gun (the end of Fire Island), over to the Moriches Inlet, and up the Ocean Ave. canal. She ran like a dream. Welcome back, Cap’n!

My Blog and I Are Renewing Our Vows

Audrey's Photoshop skills are second to none.

Audrey’s Photoshop skills are second to none.

Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve been caught cheating. And I’ve done it to one of the things I love the most in this world: My blog.

You’ve all noticed it. We’ve been distant. I haven’t visited it as much (in fairness, you haven’t visited it that much either). But the pressures of work, family, boyfriends, a really, really tough winter, and the straight hustle have made it hard to maintain this relationship.

But all that is going to change. I’m recommitting myself to NoMadBlog, and it starts today.
