Little Lussie

A few days ago, 
I was wandering through Scotland
like a local.

Today, I'm sitting on a porch swing 
in the southern heat of Florida.

I'd take a picture to show you...
but my camera lens fogs over every time I try to take a picture.

While these beautiful little Floridian streets
of perfectly manicured lawns
lining pastel colored homes
filled with perfectly tanned people living inside
have a quite stunning effect...

I'm not sure how they compare
to the little village of Luss
that I stumbled upon over the weekend
while working our way up through Scotland.

(Though Scotland doesn't have my mom's biscuits & gravy... and that is hard to beat.)

I love the quaint "kirk" in the town.
("Kirk"= church in Scotland)

I also really love Cadbury 99's.

(Ridiculous soft serve on a cone with a Cadbury flake shoved in it. Yum.)

Seeing them just makes it feel like summer 
has actually arrived here in Britain...

even if "summer" often means
wearing a sweater, jeans & a giant scarf
while the grey skies above you spit out rain.
