I've been so on the go, that it's taken me a few weeks to report back on my fabulous trip to Glasgow. Jane Briggs and Christy Cole, partners in creativity and life—and all-around outstanding human beings—served as my indefatigable guides, and I couldn't be more grateful.
We saw art; we saw design; we ate great food. And the best part was the undeniable sense of community. Everyone was so friendly, mutually supportive, proud of their Scottish heritage, but also eager to embrace the future. We encountered so much amazing material; you can be sure you will see more from Scotland on our site over the course of the summer. This is only just the beginning.
Here's just a taste of Glasgow's inspiring sites...
