I first read Outlander as a young mom over 20+ years ago. Okay….I didn’t just read it, I devoured it 5 or 6 times. Since then, I’ve read the rest of the books, many times each.  Every year or so for 20+ years, I checked Diana Gabaldon’s Facebook page and/or website to see if it was being made for the screen. FINALLY three miracles appeared and their names were Ron D. Moore, Terry Dresbach and Maril Davis and they have made all my Outlander dreams come true!

I write this blog because I have so many #Outlander thoughts and a strong desire to share them all while making you laugh. I love hearing back from you all, so keep those comments coming! 

My husband, Richard, is now hooked on Outlander almost as much as I am.  I write and design the memes and he builds them (sometimes wearing a kilt!!)  We’re on Twitter: @Gracesmom48 (Melissa) and @OutmanderArtist (Richard) We’re on Facebook too, right here:


We have two gorgeous grown children and the world’s sweetest 16-year old rescue dog, Hickory.  The dog watches the show too, but so far he hasn’t commented, but we’ll keep you advised.  We live in Texas, but my heart’s always in New England. ***Tulach Ard Y’all!

Above is an actual, real-life photo of Richard and me posing near standing stones many years ago before Outlander was even published.  It’s like we were psychic or something!!

And below is a recent photo taken at a wedding and Richard is wearing his kilt!! #HunkAlert 😉

    Found your site while looking into Moravians in Outlander. You say that the Moravians & Quakers are your ppl. Why do you say this?

      Because Quakers were peaceful and valued women before it was fashionable to do so. ?

    Thanks for the great recap. I’ve scared the cats along with my husband a few times reacting to Outlander stuff. I understand completely!
