Outlander is a story that is appreciated well beyond the boundaries of traditional entertainment. For us, it will always be more than a book or television series. Diana Gabaldon’s stories speak inherent truths we all can relate to within our own lives. The journey she takes her readers on allow moments of reflection, enable deeper understanding of relationships, offer hope, and, most of all, encourage strength and resilience. It is easy to identify with each character in some way – perhaps through the emotions they expressed, the choices that they made, loss they experienced, or in the traces of humanity that easily come to life through the poetic words of Diana Gabaldon.

With so many characters to admire and cherish within Outlander, there are bound to be certain journeys that you can’t wait to follow. To avid book readers, Lord John Grey has always been greatly respected for the integral role he plays within this series. We anxiously awaited being able to see the transformation of this well-loved literary role to really form. The imagery we each hold, created from countless hours reading the series and novellas, has truly come to life with the superb casting of David Berry.

“When I asked my Da how ye knew which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t.”
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 27
Claire and Jamie may have missed 20 wedding anniversaries together, but I bet if they lived near an establishment similar to Ruth’s Chris Steak House, they would definitely celebrate there. In today’s blog, I celebrate 22 years of marriage with my husband, sharing our traditional anniversary outing. Just like Jamie and Claire, my hubby and I are soul mates!
In Outlander, Claire traveled through time, and Murtagh escorted her to the cabin where she first saw Jamie. In my personal story, my mother took me across the street to meet the family that had just traveled across the country. For Jamie, it was love at first sight…for me as well.
Here’s one Sass3nach’s night out with her Jamie.

It may seem a bit fanatic to some, especially to those who have not read or watched the Outlander series. We even surprise ourselves at the numerous times we would drop everything – leaving our family and, at times, our careers – just to experience Outlander. As I write this blog today, I think about those other freakishly, and I mean freakishly, crazy fans, like Trekkies or Star Wars geeks, who endlessly live their lives day in and day out with Star Trek or Star Wars on their minds, and I mean all the time! Continue reading My Outlander love is not crazy like those Star Wars Geeks or Trekkies – Absolutely Not!

Craigh na Dun is the enchanted, ancient ring of stones created by Diana Gabaldon to provide the portal through which Claire Randall time travels from 1945 to 1743.
One sure sign that you are addicted to Outlander is that you feel the need to touch any and all standing stones you come across. We had never noticed how many boulders and large rocks are used decoratively in yards, public areas such as malls and in front of restaurants, or even just along the roadway, until we witnessed Claire go through the stones at Craigh na Dun.
Images of Claire at the hilltop, hearing the buzz of the stones, immediately come to mind whenever I find a circle of rocks or any naturally formed ring of plants, hedges, or any piece of flora. While on hikes, it has become a pastime to stage photos of my Funko Pop! Jamie and Claire figures near flowers or stones. I decided it was time to have my very own Craigh na Dun and share this easy do-it-yourself project with you.
