Irish summer, looking forward to it...

Here we go again! Well we have a few months yet before we actually leave, but I can already imagine myself taking in huge breaths of that fresh air. It smells different there. Earthy. Mossy. Salty. Ancient. I'm always energized the moment I step out of the airport and breathe it in. I wish I could bottle it and bring it back to Chicago with me (yet I'm always ecstatic after a month of travelling to get back to the best city in the world). We'll be all over the island again, but a good chunk of time will be spent in Co. Kerry. I haven't been down that way in 10 years, so I'm super excited about that. Now I just need to practice my digital photo skills so I can come home with some nice shots for the aul shop . Would be nice to recover some of what I'll lose in the feckin currency exchange...the only drawback!

...and if you really do want to 'bottle' Irish smells it could be arranged I'll got me hubbie to bottle some of next time hes spreading the fields! ;) We could call it the 'Smells of the Valley' i.e the local farms smells around the River Boyne Valley. :)

lol oh no not THAT smell, Ann! Although you may be onto something there, you can open a new Etsy shop ... IrishManureBestShitOnEarth!

I'll be praying for good weather too, I prefer springtime but summer will have to do this time.
