Hello and thanks for visiting Copperline. If this is your first time here – and if you’re reading this About page, I realise it might be – then, first up, I hope you’re finding ways to manage in this new world we’re all adjusting to. I hope you’re doing okay. It’s been a strange year for far, and we all have a long way to go.
Personally, the weeks of lockdown reminded me of what I love most: photography, nature, yoga, and writing. If you’d asked me in the ‘old life’ pre-Covid-19, that list would have been the same, but these last weeks have been clarifying. I’ve been missing our big nature walks; I’ve missed escaping down the coast and being outdoors for hours. I’ve missed trips to Fife and Perthshire and Northumberland. I am, by nature, a socially distanced person. I don’t miss being around people, but I do miss the great outdoors.
And now, as Scotland is easing out of lockdown, we can travel again. I can’t really put into words how good this feels. Even if we’re not going far – we’re returning to our ‘old’ walks in East Lothian, and will hopefully take a trip to Fife soon – it feels liberating to be able to escape. To walk in the woods that we’ve missed and take in those wide coastal vistas again.
I realised at the beginning of these weeks of staying home that I wanted to write more. This blog was on a break for most of 2019 but I wanted to come back with more interiors and design features, as well as some new content, with a focus on vegan living, and also more personal stories about our trips and walks around Scotland and beyond.
I should say – as I get asked this a lot – I don’t feature any guest posts. This blog has always been a personal space to write. And none of the content you see here has been sponsored. If you’d like to get in touch about an idea – especially if you’re a business or brand with a vegan ethos – then please do drop me a message.
Take care, Fiona
