Show Us Your Life…Hometown (part 1)

I really feel like I have two hometowns. One is where my parents still live and where I spent the vast majority of my childhood. Forres is a large village / small town in the north-east of Scotland, nestled between the mountains and the blue-grey waters of the Moray Firth. It’s kind of idyllic. I haven’t been home for six months now, and I have to say looking for pictures made me feel quite homesick! Roll on August and a visit home! As well as Forres proper, there are myriad other villages around – Findhorn, Dallas, Kinloss, Dyke, Mundole, all of which have their charms. I never cease to feel lucky to call such a beautiful place home!

    That is a beautiful place. I did not know you were Scots! My family is part Scots.

    I definitely feel like I have two hometown as well, but I'm still not completely sure where home is. It can't be back in California where I grew up since I haven't really lived there in years. But Louisiana still doesn't feel like home either, even though I actually live there now.
