As the World Wept, the Earth Rejoiced

It’s summer in Ireland. For weeks the greens appear greener. The colours and flowers more vibrant. Is it all the sunshine or have I finally opened my eyes to the beauty of nature again? Is the Earth rejoicing, flourishing in the slowdown, in the peace and sudden quiet? Here are some pictures from close to our home. Enjoy and be well friends.

Never a dull moment! I was born and raised in America before meeting my Irish husband and eventually making the move to Galway in 2006. We were never known to take it easy, but life is now busier than ever with a six year old son and two year old twin girls. As a Montessori Teacher and Mom, my days (and nights) are filled with the sounds of childhood play and laughter... and of course the occasional tears. In many ways living in Ireland is very similar to life in America, and yet in others they are worlds apart. But in our house, all cuddled up on the couch at the end of a busy day, we are our own little clan of 5. I wouldn't change it for the world!

  1. Lyndsey, such remarkable stories. I totally get who you are and am amazed that the photographs you take are so similar to mine. I can relate so well to your stories. They are truly beautiful.


    1. Aw thanks Isabella! It was a beautiful spring and summer despite the mad times we are living in. Thanks for all the gardening inspiration, it’s been so good for us.
