Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert
After reading Eat Pray Love I wanted to read everything else that Gilbert has ever written. This book takes place a few years after Eat Pray Love ends and is all about marriage.

Just a reminder, when I was in Scotland I went on a little day trip. First I spent an evening in Edinburgh, then we went to Traquair house and then we went to Melrose (a small cute town) where we were set free to go feed ourselves and then meet together later.
