I cannot express how awesome Ireland was in these few photos. Amazingly Good Craic.

“I have to live with myself and so
I want to be fit for myself to know.
I want to be able as days go by,
always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don’t want to stand with the setting sun
and hate myself for the things I have done.
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf
a lot of secrets about myself
and fool myself as I come and go
into thinking no one else will ever know
the kind of person I really am,
I don’t want to dress up myself in sham.
I want to go out with my head erect
I want to deserve all men’s respect;
but here in the struggle for fame and wealth
I want to be able to like myself.
I don’t want to look at myself and know that
I am bluster and bluff and empty show.
I never can hide myself from me;
I see what others may never see;
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself and so,
whatever happens I want to be
self respecting and conscience free.”

"Press Play, Smile"

A simple message but worth hearing anyway.

Sailing in Croatia in May 2013.

My love for roses just grows and grows.

The big day. Come and gone.
This is what radness looks like.

Happy Fathers Day to the best Dad in the world. Wish I could be with you today!!! 💙

Last week we summitted Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak. How hardcore are we!? (My legs still burn! ;))

Wow! Is this Summer!?

And I’m off! Excited and absolutely terrified to be traveling on my own for the first time in my life. 
Let the adventure begin!

He just keeps doing it. This song makes me cry.

Best day ever!
