I've shared a bit on Instagram already, but I've been living in The Bookshop in Wigtown for the past week now. Everything was very dramatic at first and now it feels quite uninteresting, but I came because I love books and put all of my wishes into this daydream and here I am. And every day I'm smitten.

The Bookshop is the largest used book store in Scotland and also happens to be in Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town. It's everything you'd expect from a tiny town-- little shops and sweet locals included. 

The weather has mostly been what you'd imagine of Scotland in late October, but every once in a while, the sun breaks through and the books are bathed in the most beautiful light. On top of the joy of unpacking my suitcase and nesting for a while, the shop has been great for catching up on photos and sharing my adventures as they happen, rather than months later in retrospect.

Since I've come, I've been sharing (almost) a photo a day on my tumblr, and I'm enjoying the challenge of finding something new and inspiring in the everyday once again. 

PS - I would be remiss not to send the biggest hug of awe and appreciation to Jessica, who made this all possible, even though we've never met. Thank you for the reminder that L.M. Montgomery is always right, that kindred spirits really aren't so scarce, and that trusting your gut is always worthwhile. Happy Birthday xo
