:: Limerick, Ireland

Ok. I feel like I have been talking about Ireland for like a year, but this is the last destination on our Ireland road trip: Limerick, Ireland.
Not that Limerick was a “destination” by any means, it just happened to be about 20 minutes from the Shannon airport, so it was more of a convenience destination. However, it was a nice place to stay for a night. If you’re looking for somewhere near the airport this is a great choice.

:: Wroclaw Christmas Market

Merry Christmas from Wroclaw! What? Too soon to say the words MC? I think not! And the market square here in Wroclaw agrees with me. Yeah! Bring on the Holiday Cheer!

I have been anticipating the grand opening of the Christmas Market since moving here in June. Why you ask? Because each and every person I’ve met since we moved here said, “Oh if you like Wroclaw now, just wait until you see the Rynek at Christmas.” So here it is, five months later, and this market did not disappoint.

:: Snow in Wroclaw

Today we had the first snowfall in Wroclaw for this 2013/2014 winter season! It was so beautiful, I just had to share an image from my walk around town.
It didn’t stick and it only snowed for a few hours, but it sure put me in the Holiday spirit! Who knows, I may even play Christmas tunes at our Thanksgiving dinner 😉

:: Visiting Killarney and the Gap of Dunloe – Ireland

The next part of our Irish road trip was actually not planned at all until we arrived in Dingle! That’s right, we had no plans to visit Killarney or the Gap of Dunloe. One of the fellow guests at the B&B we stayed at recommended it as a “do not miss” destination in Ireland. And off we went. Oh boy, what an adventure!

Killarney was just about an hour’s drive from Dingle and the downtown was filled with great shopping and Guinness Pubs (not a surprise). Of course it still rained. all day. Even though we were only in downtown Killarney for an hour or so, it was a fabulous little town to visit in Ireland.

:: How to Make a Rope Vase

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I am sure you have been busy searching Pinterest for ‘Thanksgiving Tablescapes’ – I know I have been.  That’s why I can’t wait to share with you my latest DIY project: a rope vase! I plan to use it for our Thanksgiving table, but you can use it all year long. Yeah! Not to mention, it’s super easy and super cheap. The best kind of DIY project.

:: Dingle, Ireland

The first town we visited on our weekend trip to Ireland was Dingle. This town is located on a quaint, little peninsula and was oh so lovely. National Geographic called Dingle one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and I couldn’t agree more. Don’t forget that as you look at these pictures, the white dots in the fields (as seen below) are actually sheep!
