I’m going a bit rogue this month for my Share Four Somethings contribution. While Heather encourages those who join in to share about things from the current month, I’m going to stretch the rules and share about my trip to Scotland instead. We left the United States on July 19th and returned on August 4th, so at least part of the trip happened in August.
