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.|
|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.|
|Hen/Stag party dinner at the Malt House in Galway.|
|The friends gift to the bride and groom - a surprise bagpiper.|
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 :)
