Some More Scotland. Some Changes. And Vampires.

Helllloooooo Blogworld! 


If you don't want to read about the changes, skip to the big neon green sign that says "Start Here." If you just want to look at pretty pictures of Scotland, scroll down till you see them. 


So... what do you think of the new look? In case you've never been here before, this is what these parts used to look like:
I feel like I should mention a new feature that I'm doing, and explain it a little bit. It's called Blog of the Month, and here's how I described it to Jennie, my first ever BotM:
"Okay, it's not so brilliant, and i maybe sort of borrowed and then slightly modified someone else's brilliant idea, but hear me out. So Gentri Lee does this little feature every Monday where she features a smaller blogger that she really likes, and I think that's awesome. I also think, however, that I am way too selfish to give my blog to another person that often (I'm awful, I know), so I decided to do it once a month...I want to try to find bloggers that have less than 200 followers, but are totally awesome and cool and funny and all that jazz. I'm trying to find bloggers that are within the same niche so that my readers will actually appreciate me sending them [their] way."
So there you have it - the new feature. A ton of looking goes into finding these new blogs, and I'm stoked to be able to give them exposure for a whole month.


NOW!!!! On to the post! 
You know, I feel like I have a lot of posts that mention vampires, which is odd, because if I had to pick a Twilight team to belong to, it would totally be Team Sexy Werewolf. Whatever. This post is not about Twilight. Although... I could totally make fun of K-Stew for hours, I will resist and get to the point.

I think I'm turning into a vampire. Seriously - hear me out, peeps. I've gotten so pale that I practically sparkle in the sun and I sleep during the day and am up all night (which makes going to my day job pretty torturous). Someone come tell me that I'm not going to turn into Edward Cullen, please?!

Okay, now on to to the real point of this post - Scotland. Specifically, pictures, because I'm tired of boring you with my words. Even more specifically, pictures of nature. Because Scotland is pretty much one of the most beautiful places in the world (if you're into rolling hills and green) 
See? Scotland really is beautiful!

I do love the new look. Very colorful, organized. Inviting. I could go on and on. As for Scotland...I'm so jealous! We're planning a trip to the UK next year sometime, and I seriously just can't wait, especially after seeing your pictures. Yay!

I loooove the new look! So did you switch over from Blogger to Wordpress or is Wordpress just something you're offering in your services now? I have some Wordpress peeps I can send you way when they need some adjusting!

I'm convinced that you can't take a bad picture in Scotland. It is just too beautiful. Sometimes I feel slightly guilty about having to go there for work on occasion. What part of Scotland were you in?
