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.
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.
Incredible Birds – even tiny Hummingbirds!
Smokey wood fires
Smells – so different than Ireland
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
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
