Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!

For this St. Patrick’s Day, I had intended to dress my daughter up like a leprechaun and Photoshop her into some of my old photos of Ireland, but alas–we got the plague. I mean, the flu. Anyway, it kept us out of commission and our fun project went down the toilet with everything else…

But I still have those pictures, and I still like to flip through them and remember the best trip my husband and I have ever had. (Or one of them–we were lucky to do some nice traveling before we had children.) I’m missing Ireland pretty fiercely these days, though the roads were narrow and pitted, though nothing ever opened on time–it’s a gorgeous place, a true emerald isle, full of interesting people (many of them blessed with a bit of blarney). I’d love to travel there again soon, but failing that, I’ll go through my pictures again, and this morning I’ll share some of my favorites with you.

We hiked a couple of times in the national forests but I don’t remember which ones.
