About Us

The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Ireland in Pictures

 Our trip to Ireland was wonderful and it is another beautiful place in Europe to visit. It was as green, friendly, and rainy as they say it is. The scenery was spectacular and very humbling. We are so glad we chose to conquer Ireland on our own because it was much easier than Italy would have been. I will try to summarize our time there in photos but like I always say....they just don't do the justice Ireland deserves.

There were a lot of pubs.....

A lot of beer drinking......

A lot of tea time, scones and B & B's......

A lot of castles.......

A lot of driving in this small car on the right side and left side of the road.....by day 2 it was easy.

A lot of scenery...best part of the trip

And a lot of "taking it all in".... every day we had to remind ourselves that we were in Ireland. This was another trip that made us feel like a very small piece in a very large puzzle.

Every time we travel we have very deep conversations about the rest of the world and where we would like to go next. This was another opportunity for us to grow culturally and realize that there is a whole big world out there and the American way is not the only way. We love America but we also love to expand our horizons. In Ireland we crossed paths from people all over the world, mainly from Europe but this is what I love about traveling the most. At any given moment we were surrounded by so many languages that I wished I knew them all.

I can't wait to see what journey we can think of next.....I'm feeling the tropics calling my name.
