Few Words.

Hi there, sorry I’ve been MIA for the last couple weeks – I’ve been back home in the States and now I’m back home in Ireland. The jet lag is only beginning to wear off… so rather than make you wade through a “real” post scratching your head, I’ll just leave you with a few words and photos to describe my trip, with the promise of more to come soon.

Koopman - Knowles Wedding, July 6

Hello – to new family, the Knowles’

Goodbye – to Grandma, who passed on the wedding day

Love letters – between my grandparents, found in an old envelope and tied with frayed pink ribbon

Black. White. And Black & Whites.

Cupcakes!  – the ones Bonnie and I made for the wedding, and the Cosmopolitan one I bought in NYC at Crumbs Bake Shop.

Wedding Cupcakes

Incredible Birds – even tiny Hummingbirds!

Smokey wood fires

Mosquito bites


Smells – so different than Ireland

Snow-capped mountains

Endless forests

Crystal-clear lakes

Holland Lake, Condon, MT

Recipes – shared between families to celebrate the union

STEAKS – medium-rare, and all the good things that accompany

Microbrews – ahhhh.

Naughty junk food – shame, shame!

Exercise – walking, cycling, canoeing

NYC indulgences
Air travel – way too much!!!
Customs – where I stupidly forgot at 5 am that I had left agave syrup, JIF peanut butter and Huckleberry Jam in my carry-on!!! Confiscated. Sad.
Extortion – if you were there, you know what I mean.
Contact – with the rest of the world? Nope.
Room with a view at Holland Lake Lodge


Memories – too many to count

Quiet – my grandma’s bedside, morning bike ride around Bozeman, waking up at Holland Lake

Noise – All good! (my niece and nephew, wedding fireworks, Times Square)

Loneliness – for Frank and Ev, and for my grandma

Joy – for my sister! and to be with my family

Glacier National Park
