For the love of Ireland

Thursday, March 17, 2011

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Mostly in part because my grandma loved Ireland & often spoke about her travels there & her family that immigrated over to New York from Ireland. Whenever I see anything Ireland, I always think of my grandma.

When I was younger she would show me photos of our family castle over there [although not in the family anymore, but at one point it was]. She said that one day she would take me to Ireland for a visit. Sadly we wont be able to; she passed away a few years ago. But because of her, my love for the family castle & for Ireland is still there & I hope to get the chance to visit someday!

 



How gorgeous is this castle? I can't wait to see it in person one of these days!

I hope eveyone has a great St. Patrick's Day today!

  5. When I was younger I used to tell my parents I'd move to Ireland, live in a castle and have a lot of goats. Don't ask me why I wanted goats. I just did.

  7. Ireland is a beautiful country. My husband's wife married an Irishman and moved to a big house on a windy hill in the Irish countryside. We've been to visit many times, and it's lovely. So, soooo green! And the people are unbelievably friendly and charming.

    PS: I got your address from the Love & Envelopes Birthday Club... You're the closest birthday girl to me so far. Victoria isn't so far from Seattle! Have you ever been?
