Honeymoon: The Last Day

A year ago today, my husband and I were enjoying Scotland on what ended up being the trip – and Honeymoon – of a lifetime! It’s very strange to think about being so far away from home now, as in these quarantine times, a trip to the grocery store seems like an event. To commiserate […]

Pregnancy and a Pandemic

The last few months have been an interesting mix of happy and terrifying.  We found out that I was pregnant at the end of January.  Instantly we were thrilled and chomping to tell any and everyone.  Andy bought me the most beautiful “Yea, we are pregnant!” bouquet and we went about planning which room would be the […]

Honeymoon: Day 8

We woke up on the morning of the 4th day in Ireland in time to catch a ferry to the Aran islands. The only catch is, that day, unlike our first 3 days, the weather was frigid and incredibly windy. Insanely windy, in fact. We talked about postponing until the next day, but our time was […]

Honeymoon: Day 7

IRELAND Day 3 in Ireland. Given that we were out late the night before, we ended up sleeping in and missed the boat out to the Aran islands – so we decided to take a day drive into Galway instead! Galway is a city I have heard a lot about – in songs and stories – […]

Honeymoon: Day 6

IRELAND The second day in Ireland was just as magical as the first. Since the weather was still beautiful, we decided to spend the day driving along the coastline to tour the beaches of the Wild Atlantic Way. What a freaking PERFECT day! We drove through Spanish Point, Quilty, Doonbeg, and down to Kikee. We […]

Whole 30: Reintroductions

Today marks the last day of Whole30 Reintroductions! It has been an interesting – and enlightening – last 10 days. Before I began this, I was sure that legumes would be the no-problem intro, dairy would be the worst, gluten might be problematic, and non-gluten would probably be okay. Now that I have worked my […]

Honeymoon: Day 5

IRELAND We landed in Ireland to stunning weather. The weather was sunny and much warmer than in London and Scotland. It was like the whole of Ireland was welcoming us with sunshine and open arms! Even going through immigration proceedings was an enjoyable experience. It truly was like a scene out of The Quiet Man. […]
