It all started on Thanksgiving Day last year. It was just a quick thought, a passing moment. It was a brief discussion with Rylan about how awesome it would be to go to Ireland. Rylan has wanted to go to Ireland her whole life. We didn't know it at the time, but this brief discussion was the spark that would change our lives over the next year.
The following day I started looking into making this dream a reality. I started checking out travel and tourism websites, started thinking about an itinerary, and pricing different options. Within two weeks we had our airfare to Dublin, and it wasn't long after that we booked our hotel and day trips. We'll be in Dublin for one week, and during that week we'll also be visiting Blarney Castle and Belfast. Rylan will be celebrating her birthday with a Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl, and ending the night at Temple Bar. We'll also be visiting the Guinness Storehouse at the St. James's Gate Brewery.
Dreaming about and planning this trip has greatly influenced us this year, especially when it comes to our photography. We have been taking less aviation trips, but we've been doing more modeling for our Sentiment d'Amour Collection.
