Ireland from my iPhone.

I'm still dreaming of our week in the Irish countryside. I'm so happy to be back home with my kiddos (and I feel refreshed enough to truly enjoy them :), but I still keep coming back to these fuzzy photos on my phone. 

An afternoon spent laying in the sun reading and napping in intervals.  A pint of Guinness in an old, dark pub.  Incredible music and food.  Late night conversations with my oldest and dearest friends around a warm fire.  A beautiful wedding.

My heart is still beating for these moments. 

Dinner our first night.  We arrived a day earlier than the others so we could spend a night in one of our favorite little villages -- Bunratty.
On a blanket.
Late night conversations at the Manor house.  This was one of my favorite rooms.

Our first night in Bunratty before meeting up with the rest of the party.
Live music at our hotel.
I have another pic exactly like this from 8 years ago.  Unbelievable how much has changed since the last time I stood in that spot.
Bunratty Village
The hallway to our room at the manor house.
Many memories made in the pub the last time we were in Ireland.
Fancy Irish Coffee at the Ashford Castle.
Our bus for the trip to Cliffs of Moher.
A beautiful day at the cliffs.  Beats the last time we visited...cold and rainy.

At the manor house.  A view from the top of the stairs.

Rehearsal dinner.
Ashford Castle.

Hen/Stag party dinner at the Malt House in Galway.

The wedding.

The friends gift to the bride and groom - a surprise bagpiper.

Headed home.
Ready to see these faces. 
 Thanks to Lolli and Mimi who kept the pictures of our wee lads coming while we were away...I saved every single one on my phone :)
