Christmas In Scotland

I’m spending Christmas in Bridge of Weir, Scotland this year. It’s the first time I’m waking up on Christmas morning with my dad, since 1969 (when we lived in Okinawa).

The photo below was taken (47 years ago) in the back yard of our home in¬†Okinawa, just before my parents marriage fell apart. I love the snapshot, not only because I’m so HAPPY with my daddy, but also because of the custom tree he made for us. Can you tell what it’s made from? No? Well, the tin circles are used chicken pot pie containers!

I’m hoping to recreate a version of the tree today. Follow me on instagram at @MyLastBite to see more.

Have a wonderful Christmas all!
