10 Photos from the Island of Ireland

Posted in: Photos, Top Ten

It seems somewhat politically insensitive (or perhaps merely uninformed) to lump all my photos from our Ireland trip together, especially in light of last Monday’s post. I wondered if I should split them up into two posts – 10 photos from our trip to Northern Ireland, and 10 photos from our trip to the Republic.

But there is no border between the two places; we drove seamlessly from Northern Ireland to the Republic, and back again. The countryside remained lovely, the people continued to be friendly, and glasses of Guinness flowed freely on either side.

And so, because our similiarities in this world should always triumph over our differences, I’ve mashed all my photos together in one post. (Also, I was feeling kind of lazy.)

  1. Most covered lattice, Castle Leslie Estate, Republic of Ireland.

    You lichen? GET IT? LICHEN? HA.

  2. Caution: Horses sign, Castle Leslie Estate.

    I wanted to add little fangs to the silhouette and change it to say “Caution: VAMPIRE HORSES” but Rand mentioned some nonsense about defacing property or something, so I didn’t.

  3. “I have Clamidia” post-it Note, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    On the plus side, it’s great to inform future and past partners when you discover you have an STD. However, you may want to consider a different medium than a Post-It note.

  4. Giant’s Causeway columns, Northern Ireland.

    And a rare spot of sun.

  5. Ginormous mirror on the ground, Dublin.

  6. Dried ivy, brick building, blue sky, Dublin.

  7. Rand gets contemplative at the Peace Wall, Belfast.

    He wasn’t sure what to write.

  8. Mixed messages, Dublin.

    OH GOD WHICH IS IT?!

  9. Hillside near Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland.

    The beautiful spoils of our harrowing drive.

  10. Obligatory photo of the two of us, Guinness Brewery, Dublin.

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
