Where are we wandering off to next, Mom? Over by that yummy tall grass? 🤞🏻_____________________________________________________ Swipe for a couple photos from the humans’s vacation! The first is from Skellig Michael, an island off the shore of Ireland (might look familiar from Star Wars Ep. 8)! The second is at Gullfoss in Iceland! _____________________________________________________ Bandana from @nomadic.tails

🚙🌧🇮🇪📖👉 #QOTD : Is today significant?
Three years ago, we drove down a rainy backroad in Ireland. We took a turn, found a little Irish hamlet and a rainbow-hued row off the Ring of Kerry route, and ended up exploring. That’s code for lost, y’all. (My bad! Can’t read a map here in the US or Ireland, apparently! 🤷♀️)
But at a stop light on a street we never should have been, I looked out the window. Spied a pub by name of “Jack Foley’s” and I knew—even said out loud: “There it is. Jack Foley’s. That’s the name of the pub for the book.” And that book turned out to be #CastleontheRise . And from that, a story wove into #ThePaintedCastle that ministered to my creative heart last year in writing it, and captured my storytelling soul in being able to release it this coming October.
On a day that could have been insignificant, on a backroad we never expected we’d have trod, driving through the rain and rainbow-rows, we found a sign that shifted the wind in the sails of our next three years. .
Wow. Just WOW! 😮 And I learned something B.I.G. ...
This mid-week day is not insignificant, friends. No matter who we meet, where we turn, how we explore the corners of our worlds... GOD WILL USE IT. He will use us. We may not see how or why or when while starting out on the journey, but every road has a purpose—every “stop and look” moment has a thread in the woven plan.
School day. Work day. Rest day or explore day... This day is your gift. Use it. You could be writing about it three years from now and say, “There it is. That was it—THE MOMENT. The wind in the sails of the next journey!”
Walk, drive, stop or explore today... it could change everything. ❤️

Dublin's amazing night😍
La increible noche de Dublín 😍
There’s a village in Wicklow called Shillelagh and it’s got some gorgeously picturesque spots. This is the local post office nestled amongst stone bricked cottages on the Main Street.

Experiment „Reisen mit Baby“ ist geglückt. 👍🏼 Was man dazu sagen kann? Es ist echt alles anders. Normalerweise bin ich eher der Typ, der sich für jeden Tag überlegt, was man sich ansieht, wann und wo die Essens- und Kaffeepausen gemacht werden, hilft dem Mann beim Navigieren...
Tatsächlich war ich rund um die Uhr mit dem Baby beschäftigt und hatte weder Zeit noch Energie mich in irgendetwas anderes zu kümmern. Der arme Mann musste alles alleine machen, ziemlich stressiger Urlaub also auch für ihn. Noch dazu hält die Kleine sich an keine Zeit-und Sightseeingpläne 😉
Trotz relativ wenig Entspannung würd ich es jederzeit wieder machen-dem Alltag und den eigenen 4 Wänden kurz entkommen tat gut.
Und unser Baby ist ein Vorzeige-Reise-Baby: im Zug und Flugzeug war sie total entspannt. Und dank stundenlangem bespaßen, quatschen, singen, streicheln, mich zum Affen machen... hat auch das Autofahren halbwegs gut geklappt, zumindest verglichen mit zuhause (nein, nicht alle Babys mögen Auto fahren 🙄)
Deshalb gehts nach 3 Tagen zuhause gleich wieder weg-diesmal aber ins Warme 🤩☀️🌊 #dublin#ireland#irland#travelireland#travel#traveltheworld#travelwithbaby#momlife#reisenmitbaby#irlandrundreise#traveladdict#reisenmachtglücklich

Known as a gateway to the ancient sites on the Aran Islands.
It was actually a cargo ship which ran onto some rocks near Inis Oirr in 1960. It was the bravery of local islanders that no lives were lost in the accident. The Plassy now rests onto the rocks on the most easterly point of island and it's rustic views has become the major attraction to visitors.
The Burren is a karst landscape in the north west of County Clare in Ireland - home to more than 70% of Irish flora, 80% native orchids, European pine martens and a whole range of butterflies. The term "Burren" is a regional term and synonym for "Limestone pavements". It is one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe, a vast limestone area, the surface of which is intersected by a network of fissures - vertical, up to 0.5m wide ruptures caused by acid water penetrating weak points.
The walk takes you from Lahinch along the west side of Burren along the coast to Ballinalacken Castle in the north. Continuing south there are two different routes of high archaeological importance. The descent is characterized by a grey, treeless landscape.
I am so in love with Ireland.
Not because it's beautiful, though it sure is. I wasn't quite in love being here until yesterday (and Ireland didn't have anything to do with that, truly). I just had to remind myself who I really am and POW I was able to see the depths, beauty all around me.
This is my second visit with the Cliffs of Moher and it's amazing how my shift in perspective, in my presence my experience here was much more magical and stunning. The wind was so strong and after watching the birds dive and fly with it I danced and sang like a bird - most magical.
Was it the place? No. Again, I reminded myself of who I truly am. I was different and that which is around me is different. That is the true key to accessing anything in our outer world, is accessing it first in our inner world. (Though they are one in the same). P.s... the stone in this capture next to the cliff, to me, is like a magical city. I sat there imagining who must live there and what the world is like there. Do you ever imagine cities and world in parts of Nature?
Und weiter ging die #rundreise durch #donegal . Dieses Bild ist am #silverstrand entstanden. Wir waren ewig dort. Der #strand ist vollkommen umschlossen von #cliffs und man muss ziemlich steile Treppen runter, um dort unten zu sein. Aber es lohnt sich definitiv. Es war herrliches Wetter, einige waren sogar baden, ich war leider nicht angemessen ausgerüstet, um es ihnen gleich zu tun. Wer kann in Irland auch schon mit #badewetter rechnen 😅, oder überhaupt Sommerwetter.
Wenn in meinem #buch plötzlich Piraten auftauchen würden, hätten sie bestimmt am #silverstrandbeach angelegt 😆. So muss ich aber leider wieder sagen: Der Silver Strand passt nicht mehr in mein Buch. Vielleicht in ein späteres. Vielleicht 🤔 eine Piratengeschichte 😜. Mal schauen.
Ich hoffe ihr habt alle eine angenehme Woche. Sorry, dass ich euch mit Urlaubsbildern von der fleißigen Arbeit abhalte.
Nothing insta worthy about these pictures. Rubbish angles and my hair hasn't seen a brush for a while.
But this is my tribe. 3 men and a little 'lady'. The boys that keep me going, drive me mad, regularly gang up on me, cause me endless worry and washing and 9 times out of 10 never listen to a word I say. But they pick me up and put me back together, put a smile on my face every day and whilst their antics are annoying, they're a pleasant distraction from reality. I love you Dearings.

The last few days of the #wildatlanticway have seen us cover alot of miles with some pretty impressive scenery. We have finally arrived at the point along the west coast in which we had to finish our tour in 2017. This means I KNOW how good the next bit is. 1 week down. 1 to go 🚐
The first and the last picture are of exactly the same spot, taken almost two years apart. In the second shot I was sat in a camping chair resting what I thought were tired feet (I absolutely was not tired before having a child 😂) whilst watching josh fish. I was 30 weeks pregnant and the happiest I've ever been. It was a time in my life I wish I could go back and bottle. 💫
Today I watched our near TWO year old stand at the same spot watching his dad fish and it dawned on me how much has changed.
What would I tell that girl resting her feet? So full of hope and happiness. I think I'd tell her the best journey is about to begin; but to brace herself, it's going to be a rough one 👣

In light of me trying to see the good in each day at the moment. Today we took our 8 year old whippet to a small beach on the #wildatlanticway and for the first time in all those years he played with 2 dogs he had never met before. Anyone that knows Ronnie knows this is a huge achievement and it literally made my heart sing 😍
