Summer Travels: The Lake District
About a million years ago, at the beginning of June, Jordan and I took a trip to the Lake District in England. We were flying through England anyway on our way back to the States, and it was a good chance to stop and see Jordan's sister who was working at a retreat center there. It was a really wonderful place to stop and relax before embarking on our relocation project.
I figure the photos must look pretty nice to you, but imagine landing here after 2 years in the desert with no trees and no grass. It seemed rather excessive and was quite disorientating. It was a blessing to have an entire week to readjust to the green overload before we had to deal with anything else; to just be able to walk around and soak it all up.
When we first arrived I kept breaking out into a sweat, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me since it was really quite cooler than what I was used to. Then it occurred to me that it was just really humid. There was so much water everywhere, I guess my body decided it didn't need to horde it anymore...
We took lots of fantastic walks, ate lots of delicious treats, and had a great time readjusting to life with green.
I love digital scrapbooking. I also love to read and bake cookies. Especially while drinking tea. I've lived around the world, and love to travel, which is usually the theme of most of my scrapping projects.
