Back to Reality

For seven days, I lived another life, only responsible for myself. I existed in the mellow, timeless dreamworld of Ireland. I explored cities, castles, and the beautiful countryside with old and new friends.

Overall, the trip included more vacation than business. Despite taking hundreds of pictures, I'm not sure I captured all the breathtaking scenery. Narrowing down the images to a reasonable amount to share is a daunting task. Here is one of my favorite images from the past week.

I took this photo at my daughter's recital this weekend, not in Ireland. Welcome me back to reality, where a hectic day ends with hugs, kisses, and "I love you, Mommy." Although I could become accustomed to having a chef, maid, and driver, the "dreamworld" cannot measure up to my real life.

Was Ireland fun? I so want to go. I actually like to ride horses (but don't have money at the moment). A few years ago I stumbled on a catalog of equestrian vacations. The one of day dreamed about the most is riding inn to inn in Ireland. (But I would have to be in great horse shape as well as have the money. I have neither at the moment!)

Thanks for stopping by!
