I got this lovely, colorful photo of the Old Town in Edinburgh from Wikipedia
We finally chose a city in the U.K. in which we will begin our European adventure. The winner was Edinburgh, Scotland. After doing a bunch of research we felt that it would be a good place to start. Although not a cheep city to live in, it is more affordable than London, which is where we were initially going to start. What really sold us though was how beautiful it is. When I dreamed about living in a European city, it looked like Edinburgh.
Our house sold last week and we have to be out by the end of June so we've been working like mad to get packed and tie up all our loose ends. It's very exciting. We're down to our last 5 weeks :)

For anyone who's not familiar with it, Book-By-Its-Cover is a really great blog that reviews art books. Every Friday they feature a peak into artist's sketchbooks and today's artist is my friend, Karen Klassen. I love her sketchbooks. They're really inspiring; full of experimentation. Check them out here.
