Whew, good to know! We were so puzzled and I'm glad to know it wasn't just a tourist thing :)
Hope you had a great trip!

Thanks, Jacky!
Yes! This was definitely something I wish someone would have told me before :) Hope you enjoy Scotland!

Back to the Sur la Route posts with our stop in Bilbao. This pretty city is a half hour away from San Sebastian and we only hit one major place in our short time there, the Guggenheim museum. And I... Continue reading

Oooh I've read all of Ruth Reichl's nonfiction (man, she's funny) and heard lukewarm things about Delicious so I haven't picked it up yet. Let me know what you think!

Gah, we're over halfway through July and I'm in denial that this summer is flying by. But I wanted to share a July reading list before we hit August. Here's what I've been reading: 1. Almost French - I was... Continue reading

Hi Jen, the stamp set isn't being sold individually. There was a large number of kits and they were in stock for quite a few hours. There will be a new kit soon though, I hope you love that one just as much.

Hello! Glad that you were able to get the kit and hope you enjoy! Because of my schedule + the letterpress company's schedule this summer a pre-order was impossible but definitely something to consider for the future.
