Hello friends! Welcome to our Monthly Musings September post! You might notice an abundance of exclamation points in today’s post – it’s my birthday! 27 years around the sun, I can hardly believe it! Birthdays around here usually mean QT with family and close friends,

Friends, hello! What a strange reality we’ve come to face in the past month. If you look back at even just my last Monthly Musings post you can see how blissfully ignorant we were of the impact Covid-19 would have on our lives. Since then,

Happy first Sunday in March, friends! How are you on this fine day? We managed to sneak out for a speedy walk in between the intermittent rain showers. Before that, there were pancakes for breakfast, & shortly after we got home there was a blood

Happy Sunday, dear friends! I hope this month’s dose of ramblings finds you well. Boyfriend & I are just back from a wonderful long weekend of hotel hopping, dining out, and general over-indulging right here in our very own city of Dublin. It was the

Happy Wednesday, sweet friends! I hope you find yourself easing into this new month well. As I type, the rain is bucketing down hard outside the kitchen window, the heating is on, and I’m wearing my coziest jumper. All of this is to say: it’s

Hello friends! I’m so happy you’re here for yet another monthly musings post. Wow, didn’t summer just fly right by? I feel like I just got the hang of this whole surviving-in-the-heat thing and now the days are starting to get just a touch cooler.

Hello dear friends! July already! How was your month? Ours was sunny & humid. Lemme tell you, as an Irish person, I do not handle the heat well. I’ve basically been living in my birks, my yoga pants, and a flowy top all month long.
