it was nice to get away ~ I think I'll have a guinness today

I’m back! I {almost} feel like a new person. Such a wonder what a vacation does for your soul – can you imagine being a person who never travels? All the new things you see, the small things you experience, the characters you meet and the stories you get to tell later. This trip was full of the fresh inspiration that I so desired. The trip was planned for my Mom’s 50th B-day and our first trip together in 15 years, just us two. New York City was our destination 15 years ago and now I live in the heart of it all. Does that mean in 15 years maybe I’ll be living in Ireland? Highly unlikely but we sure did make it a good time!


"One's destination is never a place,
but a new way of seeing things."
~ Henry Miller


Next week I’ll share more details and more pictures, still going through the lot of them. And now I’m excited to catch up on all that I missed with my friends and with all my favorite bloggers and maybe find some new reads this weekend. It was nice to be disconnected but I’m happy to be back!

~Happy Friday all~

What a fabulous trip! Sometimes a girl needs to get away with her momma! My mom and I went on a trip together to Paris years ago. We had the best time- oh, the joie de vivre! haha p.s. You should add some bailey's and whiskey to that guinness and just go for the car bomb ;)

Can you believe I'm this far behind on your blog?? Catching up tonight :) Your mom is so cute! I love your shots of Ireland, it looks so gorgeous and so serene. My dad used to sing this song about the rolling green hills of Ireland and you've captured that perfectly!
