Long May Your Big Jib Draw

Oh my! What a vacation! Words can't even begin to describe... the sites, the food, the people, the parties, the booze, the WHALES! Absolutely amazing...


We did and saw so much in those 2 weeks. A HUGE and heartfelt thank you to my dear aunt and uncle Regina and Dermot for putting us up and feeding us (oh so well!). And the same to ALL of the aunts and uncles, great aunts and great uncles, nanas and papas, nannies, cousins, second cousins, first cousins once removed, and friends who might as well be family for showering the children with gifts, plying us with alcohol, and generally making us feel loved.


And mom and dad, thanks for making it all happen. ♥


We attended party after party, ate food Stephanie hadn't even heard of (but loved!), saw whales in the ocean on at least 3 different occasions and got Screeched In at Christian's Pub! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun...


I took over 300 photos while we were there so here are just a few. I'll post more of the family snap shots, etc. on Facebook as soon as I have a little time. Hopefully this week.

We're smiling, but we were nervous (rightly so!).


It was hard to say goodbye but we're home now and settling back into our routine. The shop is back open for business and I'll be getting back into the studio this week. Watch for shop updates soon!


And Regina, we'll toast you every night at FIE'VE TIRTY!

  4. It's fantastic, Aimee. Even when I lived in Canada I felt like going to Newfoundland was like a trip to another country. It's so Irish. The people are amazing and the sites are like nothing you've ever seen. I highly recommend it!

  26. When is certainly the actual iphone five expected to appear? I've got verizon and would certainly like to obtain the i phone when my personal contract expires in August, I would really like to find out if the i phone 5 is coming out anytime soon, for the reason that if so, I might stick it out more time to obtain that instead of the iphone 4.
