Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland Memories
My mind goes back to several years ago when my husband and I visited Dublin and met his family (aunts, uncles, and cousins) for the first time!
It was a joyous feeling, even with them being my husband’s relatives and not mine, to learn more about Paul’s parents and family, and seeing the city where his parents met, courted, and married.
A funny memory was from Paul’s first cousin’s younger kids, driving over to meet us for the first time, saying, “Daddy, are they going to be obese?” Knowing we were Americans, that was their thought.
I don’t think I need to say more. I hope we proved those children wrong by not being obese. Seriously though, during the 5 days of our visit, we only saw ONE obese person in Dublin.
Lord, help us!
Glendalough was one of our favorite hikes. Stunning country.
And we stopped for tea and cookies. Look at our view!
Strolling through the hills. Holding my “new Aunt’s” hand.
Our two weeks in Europe were fantastic and we lucked out on the most beautiful weather.
If you need a good Irish recipe for today, I promise my Beef & Guinness Stew is a keeper recipe! Try it.
And I’ll end with the two handsome Irish gents – Paul’s amazing uncles.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
