Who is your inspiration?

"I am inspired every time I see someone stepping into their calling – doing something that feels true and beautiful, profound, or deeply kind. "

There is a Dutch word ''gezellig'' - one of those untranslatable words that gets broken down to meaning a warm cosiness from togetherness or spending time with loved ones- that sums up our Sunday with Adam's family.  Eddie and Margaret's home is just a little over an hour away from Dublin but whenever we go it feels like a proper step off the grid, a place to unwind, to while away the hours, to just be without the hustle of the city.

They tell me that I would grow tired of it after a week, and perhaps it's true- but I sure do like that even, steady pace at the weekend.  The best sort of Sunday comforts.

Amalfi | One

Sunday, June 4, 2017

DSC_0297 Our trip to the Amalfi last year was the first this side of the ocean together as a family- with Isabelle in tow and my sister-in-law expecting.  We stayed in Praiano: a much quieter part of the coast, minus the tourists and hectic crowds.  Where most of our trip revolved around food (and being somewhat disappointed by our spoils in that regard), where this view was what we woke up to and said goodnight to and where we unequivocally decided that yearly family vacations are so, so necessary.

Whichever side of the pond that may lead.

From the time that we rolled out of the airport (post trans-atlantic flights, post-calls) into the beauty of the Amalfi coast.  Limoncello aplenty.

Looking forward to sharing more (long belated) memories of our trip this week.

Sunday brunch in easkey | Pudding row

Monday, May 22, 2017

DSC_0609 A few images from our 25 minute drive outside on a Sunday morning to Pudding Row. Where twelve of us promptly fell in love with everything on the menu, quite seriously contemplated ordering a second round of everything and decided this was in fact, the best brunch we've all had in ages.

Dervla Conlon, the creative force behind it all, sure knows a good thing.  Freshly baked, homemade, locally sourced, organic where possible- a menu that is equal parts comforting and exciting.

Now, how do we get back there every weekend? ;)

Caoimhe's communion

This past weekend we headed up to Sligo to share in Caoimhe's communion.  

Things that I know to be true about her- she is smart, witty , knows the words to every song on the radio (or at least all of the ones that are playing when I'm in the car),  is a little speed runner and outside of the fact that she needs to work on her joke-telling (and knock-knock jokes), she is without a doubt and in every sense of the word treasured.  

So it is no surprise that Adam's family (whom I adore) and extended were there with open arms to celebrate.  And true to form, her mother and family made it a weekend that make trips out west seem oh, so necessary.

Congratulations, petal.  We are so proud of you!
