Ireland was always on my bucket list. The beauty of the landscape and the historic castles, really appealed to me. When we planned this trip, I knew I wanted to take in as much as we could, in the short time that we had. Our first tour, was a half-day North Coast trip. Last week, I shared about Howth Harbour and some delicious seafood chowder, that we enjoyed. Today’s post is all about our tour of Malahide Castle.Read More
I’m thirty years old. Ugh. I still don’t like the way that looks or sounds. However, it is what it is. I’m thirty years old and I keep finding myself in seasons of waiting. For the past 15 years, I have been constantly waiting on something. Have you ever felt like you are just bouncing from one wait to another? If so, it’s time to stop waiting and just enjoy life, right now.Read More
It’s Friday! That means it’s time for another travel post! Last week, I shared a more somber post about our last adventure, in France: Visiting the D-Day Beaches in Normandy. Today, I am moving onto Ireland! After flying from Paris to Dublin, we hit the ground running. Our first day trip, was a castle tour. Before I get to the castle, I wanted to share some about the town we stopped at for lunch: Howth Harbour.Read More
Tis the season for my gift guides! I know some of you are still chipping away at your Christmas list, so I thought I would post one more guide for you. I am a stationery addict, myself, so it was easy for me to put together a list of items, that I would love (or already own).
The great thing about stationery is that pretty much everyone has to use some form of it on a day-to-day basis. Think of all of the office supplies you use, at home and work! Pens, paper, notebooks, and calendars are in every home and office.So, on with the guide! Here are a few items, that I think would be great for the stationery addict in your life (or pretty much anyone else).
There were parts of our last trip to Europe, that weren’t as exciting or lighthearted, as others. I enjoy writing about the fun stuff! It makes me feel like I am reliving the experience. Today, I am going to share about a tour, that wasn’t necessarily “fun” and “exciting”, like Disneyland Paris or Bayeux, but it was eye-opening and it taught me lessons that are impossible to learn from history books. This post is about our last stop in France: The D-Day Beaches in Normandy.
If you are currently going through an adoption (or considering it), you may encounter many waiting periods, throughout the process. There are times when you feel like you will never get through the mountains of paperwork, background checks, and training that is required. However, you will get through it and when you do, you may start to wish you had more paperwork. Instead of feeling antsy and uncertain, while you are waiting, you can use that time to prepare for your future child. Today, I’m sharing five things that you can do during the adoption wait.
Hey Y’all! Thanksgiving is coming up and I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about eating some turkey and sweet potatoes! It has been a few years, since I have had a Thanksgiving off from work, so that makes this year even sweeter, for me. However, we all know that Thanksgiving isn’t about the food. The name of the holiday, says it all. It’s about giving thanks. That’s why I chose today, to talk about a few different ways that you can keep a gratitude log. Not just for Thanksgiving, but for the long haul.
Hey y’all! I’m back with another Friday travel post! I’m picking up, right where I left off, last week. After our day in Disneyland Paris, we hopped on a train and headed to a beautiful, small town: Bayeux, France. I loved so much about our last Europe trip, that it is hard for me to pick a favorite spot. However, if I had to make a decision, I would say that Bayeux takes the win. It was the exact opposite of Paris. Where Paris was bustling and busy, Bayeux was quiet and slow. When Paris was up all night, Bayeux was in bed by 9 PM. It’s like comparing my 20 year old self, to my 30 year old self!
I could continue to wax poetic about Bayeux all day, but instead, let me tell some of my favorite things to do in this beautiful little town.
Have you noticed all of the gift guides? I know I have. This year, I wanted to share a good mix of guides, because I want to make your life easier, while you are shopping for your friends and family. I know how hard it is to Christmas shop. Online shopping has definitely made it a lot easier, but I still struggle to pick out gifts for people. Basically, these guides are helping me too! So, onto today’s post…It’s a gift guide for book lovers. If you know someone who really enjoys reading (it doesn’t matter what genre), then look no further! This is the guide for you!
It’s time for another Friday travel post! Two weeks ago, I shared about our arrival in Paris, and how we spent our anniversary there. We limited our “touristy” activities and just enjoyed the city. Since, we actually had two full days, in Paris, we decided to spend the second day at a magical place…Disneyland! It’s probably not the first choice for Americans visiting Paris, but because this was our second trip, we wanted to do things a little different. Today, I’m excited to share all about our day in Disneyland Paris!
