Are there days when you feel like the world around you is enormous?

Is life rushing by you?

Take a deep breath, look up
Pause and look around, the beauty of the moment is all around you



Just look

 We had such a beautiful day at Pearson's Falls in Tryon

Good night sky, good night water
Good night moon
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, pause and enjoy the moment!  Di

Eire - Ireland

 Eire ɛərə/; Irish: [ˈeːɾʲə] is the Irish name for the island of Ireland and the sovereign state of the same name

Eire, my husband's grandfather James Fagan immigrated  from Dublin
 Ireland holds a very special place in our hearts, our daughter was married at the O'Brien's Tower at the Cliffs of MoherCliffs of  Moher at the O'Brien's Tower
  It was a dream wedding made possible by my possibility of belief and planning to make my daughter's dream come true.

Love of each other was celebrated with wedding vows that symbolized old customs, I read a blessing.

 We were so happy to share in their joy!
 Don't they look like an Irish couple! They even had a shower of rain, good luck and fertility.


We went to celebrate at a local pub and had toasts from the locals and a song from a gentleman to celebrate the day

 Our beautiful daughter and her new husband as Irish as they come, united two wonderful families...dreams do come true

Montreat

Come along with me to Montreat North Carolina
It is the end of the season here and the town was quiet but beautiful
We got out and walked around
 
















Across from this area is Montreat Presbyterian College

A place of solitude and reflection

A place of beauty

There were amazing houses with great stories unrevealed

On the way home we traveled the high road through Black Mountain top and saw some Americana 

 




So until the next journey out and about, with all my heart God Bless America, Di
