Monthly Musings: April 2020

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

Hello friends, happy Wednesday! The first Wednesday in December; that just flew right in, didn’t it? While my brain is struggling to catch up with the date on the calendar, my heart & soul have already fully embraced the festive season: Our tree is up,

Hello friends! Please excuse my tardiness in bringing you this month’s dose of ramblings. Things got slightly away from me for a bit, but I’m here now & everything is right once more. November marks a whole year since I’ve been writing these posts &

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! September is my birthday month and I genuinely cannot believe that we’re here already! Another whole year traveled around the sun, wow. It went so fast! Our musings this month are coming to you from County Mayo, nearly the exact opposite side of

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.

Monthly Musings: July 2019

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.

Hello friends – happy June! The six month mark already, wow wow wow. Is it just me or did May fly by at extremely high speed? Looking back, the whole month has kind of blurred into one very long weekend in my mind. We spent

Welcome to May, friends! Boyfriend & I are still wading through the deep layer of chocolate we accumulated over the Easter holidays. We have chocolate bunnies coming out of our ears, chocolate eggs all over the house, bars & anything small-ish set up in front

Hello friends! Welcome to another Monthly Musings post, this one easing us into April. March felt like it lasted for four weeks too long for me & I’m so grateful it’s over – bring on the longer days & warmer temperatures! I hope you found some

Welcome to another Monthly Musings post, friends! I hope today finds you extra well rested from the weekend & ready to tackle the week ahead. Boyfriend & I have had a very hectic last few weeks, so I think I speak for the two of us

I find February awfully bleak. It’s literally freezing outside, the weather forecaster keeps mentioning the threat of snow every 15 minutes, the days are dark and miserable, and I find it hard to force myself out the front door. As in, I’m thinking up ways

Happy New Year, friends! I hope you found time at the end of 2018 to carve out some well deserved rest. I took the last two weeks off to give my body the rest it needed and I feel like a new woman; my body

I love the holidays. Mulled wine. Classic films I’ve already seen a million times but insist on watching every year regardless. Spiced everything. Decorating the tree and covering the house with twinkly lights. Festively scented candles. Gift giving. Cheesy music playing on the radio. Did
