I’m back with a bang after a two week hiatus for Easter. In retrospect, I really needed that break to clear my head (which, ironically, was anything but clear due to the almighty sinus infection of doom. I mean, if it’s going to happen, it’ll happen right on the holidays, am I right?)
I’ve been thinking a lot about things over the last while, more specifically this blog and its future. I’ll not bore you with it now – I still need to iron out a lot in my own mind – but I’ll share my thoughts soon. Anyhow, we had the loveliest Easter (sinuses aside!), and I feel reset and rejuvenated for these next few months ahead. Someone was telling me the other day that it’s only ten weeks until Summer. I’m living for it, not gonna’ lie!
A mammoth collection of photos from our trips this past couple of weeks, and some info on the beautiful spots we visited too!
We took a trip just North of Dublin on Good Friday, to meet some of our friends who’d come to Ireland for the holidays. It’s always so lovely to see them, and we had the best day catching up and car boot picnicking! (You can see Jenny’s post on it here!) I was always so sceptical about online ‘friendships’ before I started this blog, but I’ve truly met some of the sweetest people because of it. I’m very thankful for them, and also to have opportunity to spend time with them from time to time too.
We spent the most gorgeous few days in the very North of Ireland over Easter weekend. Beaches, scenery and bracing sea air were so perfect for relaxing us totally. It has been a crazy year so far, between travel, big moves in education for Eva and general busyness in both Andrew and my jobs. I’ve said it before, but it’s only when we stop that I sometimes realise how much we need the break from routine. I think, in relationships in particular, it can be so easy to fall in to that tag-team, ships in the night type trap, where conversation is really only a transfer of information, or instructions, or children. In these years for us, I know that’s the case anyway. We’re working hard at actually living slowly where possible, having the important chats, spending time in quiet moments. This time away was just that. I’m grateful for it.
I hope you had an amazing Easter break too! Back tomorrow with a giant house post celebrating four whole years of Little Wood!
