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 […]

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 – […]

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!

Honeymoon: Day 2

LONDON, cont. After waking up and barely checking out in time, we took off sight-seeing around London, completely thankful that our London hotel was kind enough to hold our luggage throughout the day. Our plane for Scotland didn’t leave until around 8pm so we had the majority of the day to fill. We did everything […]

Update

Things have been ridiculously wild and busy since my last post – which, I admit, was some time ago. March 1, yikes! I’m sorry! I hope everyone had a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and a lovely Easter! A quick recap: I moved back to Austin, stopped working from home – I now work full time […]
