A Reminder of Scotland


I’m finally back home in the US!

Ok, that’s kind of old news.  I’ve actually been home for about a 2 1/2 weeks now.  Whew, and boy did I hit the ground running!  In that short time, I went to the National Sursum Corda (I actually flew in from Scotland the weekend of the event), attended Institute ordinations at SFdS in STL , and officially turned my M.Sc. thesis in (Deo Gratias!).  Ahh!  A bit too much excitement for my little introverted self, but fantastic nonetheless.

I’m only just now slowing down to catch my breath and trying to adjust to “normal” life back here in the Midwest.  At the same time, the realization that I am actually home and that I probably won’t ever go back to Scotland is starting to sink in as well.  I am starting to miss those unbelievably green rolling hills, salty sea-side air, and even the daily hike up and down the “mountain”.  Although I had a nice reminder recently!  Way back in May, the editor of Regina Magazine came out to Scotland to visit with Catholics and gather some intel for their Scottish issue.  She even came to Dundee and interviewed a friend of mine!  The issue just came out a week or so ago and you can read it online here!  They did a pretty good job of highlighting the very best of Scotland, its culture, and the Catholics within.  Give it a read!

Oh and… they may or may not have squeezed and interview out of me as well… hmmm… you will just have to read the issue to find out!  (ahem also – I just simply enjoy anonymity for no reason in particular.)

Don’t have time for much now, but stay tuned!  Now that I am officially unemployed (but hopefully not for long), I should have time for a post or two!

St. Margaret of Scotland and St. Francis de Sales,  orate pro nobis!

What are you waiting for?  Go be a saint!

        Perhaps you will join me, Grace & Angela at Birthright on 30 Aug at Creve Coeur Lake?

        • Maria.Nicole says:

          Hmm… maybe not THAT soon :P I need to get back into my hardcore 5:30am running habit first.

            How close do you live to the mess in Ferguson?

            I’ve been off a from running a few weeks tending to the family while wife and V were at hospital. Hope to re engage tomorrow.

              About a 10/15 minute drive, but we don’t see a thing of it. I didn’t even know about it for a few days ’cause I don’t watch the news. I actually used to live right there – just 2 blocks away!!

              Congrats on the little one finally being home!! Te Deum! Haha we’ll see who can get back up to speed the fastest :P (Although I’m 99% sure you will win)

            • Marc says:

              These little guys bounce back from just about everything faster than I do!

    So happy to have you back in the states! Can’t wait to see what God has in store for you… ;)

Have something to add? I'd love to hear from y'all!
