You may have been able to tell from the following photo dump, we absolutely adored our time in Scotland with my family. Both of my parents are Scottish, along with grandparents, so I've got Scottish heritage in abundance and I'm extremely proud of it! If you're ever looking for a place to visit in the UK, I would recommend the Borders heavily. I used to spend many of my Christmases up to my knees in snow there and they're my most treasured memories from my childhood. It's safe to say that this was one of the best trips I've ever been on and is perhaps all the more poignant looking back now as my Uncle has passed. I will forever be thankful for the week we got to spend with him and my Aunt, exploring new places and getting to show Luke what the Scottish lifestyle is all about. I fell in love with the place all over again and Luke was able to explore a new part of our very big world. You can't really ask for more than that...

I hope you've enjoyed this post and all the photographs! Part two will be up very soon with even more photographs for you to feast your eyes on. I'm sorry if I seem a little reserved, I'm just extremely tired and still in that stage where nothing seems real. I'm sure I'll soon be ship shape following the funeral next week so not to worry. In the meantime, thank you for being patient with me. Have you ever been to the Borders? Where's your favourite place to go in your country?
