Dublin Living

A little update and hello from Dublin. The sun is teasing us from time to time and the Spring blossoms shedding some hope that better weather is on the way! All that said, we’re really settling in and finding Dublin, & Ireland in fact, a pretty cool place to call home (for now anyway!)

Although I have those “big dreams” of renovating my dream home one-day – living in a smaller apartment, having to really choose & decide what stays and what goes, has been a liberating lesson for both my husband and I. My love for shopping has changed somewhat from impulse to more thought – “Will this bring me lasting value & happiness?” Ha, some days it’s easier said than done – I’m an ex-stylist, shopping is in my blood!

The ample parks are enjoyed by toddler owning parents! (So are all the pubs and wine bars!)

I love all the colourful doors – here, our neighbourhood surrounding a large square. And below, the strip of coast I run along.

The city is roughly 8km from our door and although it’s pretty small as far as cities go, there is still just so much to explore!

Above, one of my favourite Irish Stores, Avoca.

Home to Google, Facebook, Pinterest, twitter, airbnb, LinkedIn and more – the city is buzzing with internationals and opportunity! I can’t wait to explore and share more with you! xx
