I'm baaaack! Seriously, I cannot believe that my Ireland vacation has come and gone. It was amazing and wonderful and just everything I hoped it would be. Since a lot of you have been asking, I'm posting lots of pictures. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
|Blarney Castle and Gardens|
|I believe this is us after we kissed the Blarney Stone!|

|Like my castle?|

I loved everything about Ireland. I loved the country, the people, the weather, the food, the EVERYTHING. I seriously think my body is protesting about being back because I got sick as soon as I set foot back in the states (while still on the plane).
Ireland is a beautiful country, full of beautiful people and history. As a writer, I gleamed so much inspiration from walking those streets. I even came up with a new book idea while riding the Dart. Once I finish my current WIP, I'll be jumping into that one and I can't wait. The back of the book has been written out and everything. That's what Ireland did to me.
I'm saddened to be back. I would've liked to stay longer just so I could find myself in these little cafe's, working on my book.
