For those that don't know yet, I Went to Ireland! Today marks exactly 2 years since my trip to the Emerald Isle and yet every moment is still fresh in my mind. I wanted to bring back my posts from my old blog about the trip and share with you all our crazy adventures! Who knows, maybe they'll inspire your next trip!

This morning I was flipping through my copy of Kaffe Fasset's 'Quilts in Ireland' (again) perusing all the brilliantly colorful photos and locations, petting the pages as if I were petting the quilts themselves. Without warning, I began to cry. What in the world?! And in that split moment I realized, I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. And it all started with Ireland.
