Let’s talk a photo tour of Killarney National Park. It’s right next to the quaint city of Killarney in County Kerry. Founded in 1932 as a donation to Ireland, it preserves native forests and wildlife. It’s huge (25,425 acres in fact) and filled with tiny little roads that curve up and down the landscape. The very first thing we did when we got there was hike up to the top of Torc Waterfall. It was breathtaking, quite literally, for us […]
I think we all hate those mushy-gushy-corny-worny-heap-o-cheap Valentine’s gifts you’d imagine have been sitting in a Walgreens warehouse since they weren’t sold last February. Instead of giving in to a made up holiday and buying some piece of junk that’ll just get thrown out in a few months, I like to get creative and find another way to tell my loved ones that they rock. See what I mean? If you’re diggin’ it, take a closer look and click below. […]
I honestly didn’t know what to expect of Limerick as we drove in, late one night. We got there just in time to catch a little live traditional music at Dolan’s Pub. That’s perhaps where we had the best fish and chips of our trip. The next morning we set off to explore King John’s Castle. This 13th century structure was built on the River Shannon, and remains of of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe. Isn’t it crazy to be […]
You guys remember my wall hanging for giants? Well I made a mini one. Like it? It would love to hang in your home. Grab it for yourself here, my friends. I’ll even include a little surprise for ya if you message me and say you saw it here first.
Happening upon the tiny coastal village of Doolin in County Clare was a happy accident. It was sunset and we were racing to catch any last few glimpses we could. Keep in mind, that booking it in Ireland as Americans is not that fast. The teeny-weeny roads are absolutely unforgiving. What we would consider a single lane back alley street is the only way to get around. Don’t get me wrong each winding turn is just as beautiful as the […]
And now we continue the Irish Adventure to Galway. To be honest, it felt like a blur. Despite what the pictures show below, we caught a lot of rain. And when in Ireland, the indoor entertainment is of course having a pint or two…The first night, we made friends with a local couple at a bar and spent the entire night laughing and guzzling down beer. Our hotel was right on the edge of Latin Quarter. Shop after shop along […]
Holy smokes! Ireland is quite possibly one of the most breathtaking places on planet earth. I was lucky enough to spend a solid week there, driving around the country. These next few days I’m going to share a few of my favorite moments from the trip of a lifetime. It all started in Dublin. When Eamon and I got there, we were insanely jet lagged from the sleepless redeye we’d just deplaned. So we took a quick nap at The […]
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been etsy-ing it up lately. I’m proud to say that Jennifer’s Mondo Village of Greatness is now offering custom origami hangings and mobiles. The photos below are of a piece I made for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual gala in New York. It’s over 7ft. tall and 12 ft. wide. Take a closer look here. Buy a bundle of shapes for yourself here. Turn them into a mobile or garland on your own. Or you can use them […]
I wish I could eat the most important meal of the day in the heavens every morning. The Skydeck at Willis Tower lets you have your breakfast in the sky. Crazy, huh? There you are, alone and hanging off a glass edge, 103 floors up as you enjoy a buttered biscuit. It might have been in the middle of a snowstorm, but it was beautiful nonetheless. You can see straight down to the tiny speck people, barreling through the snow. Gotta love Chicago!
