A while back, I was introduced to Ruth through our mutual friend, Maggie. Ruth’s one of the most interesting people I know! She and her husband, Simon, live in a yurt on a farm about an hour away from Dublin. While I love Dublin, sometimes it’s nice to get away and enjoy a simple day away from it all.
Their cozy yurt welcomes me with open arms- we drink way too much freshly-ground coffee, and listen to soft jazz over the sounds of a lazy rain dancing on the yurt rooftop. Ruth and Simon feed me the good foods, and it’s basically like I’m on a vacation! Today, we made a flower crown, I finished my first weaving, and we took a tour of the farm, which is expansive (but aren’t all farms?). I also met Simon’s parents, who live on the property as well. The parents are so incredibly sweet!
And now… back to reality. In other news, my mind’s been traveling a thousand miles a second trying to finalize travel plans. Alex and I depart for five weeks of travel THIS WEEK! There’s still flights to buy, accommodations to finalize, and travel strategies to be made. Ma Texas gurl gets here in a little more than 24 hours (Dublin time), and then the adventure of a lifetime begins!
Life is grand. It’s brilliant!
