The Rock of Cashel and a Giveaway!!

Last weekend, we went on a little outing together. It was really fun and romantic! It was nice to get away and just enjoy each other's company without the thoughts of work and chores and life sitting on our shoulders.

 We visited the Rock of Cashel in Tipperary! 

 We even saw signs of spring... What a welcome sight indeed.
Built around the 12th century AD, this structure is a truly inspiring place to behold.

 Looking out doors and windows that KINGS looked out of...

 ... and viewing what remains of thousands of year old paintings...

The stonework is beautiful and masterfully done to have lasted through the ages. Even the littlest details were not forgotten. This (chapel?) area was the most impressive to me and it is currently under renovation, as they try to restore some of the paintings and artwork to their original glory.  

 The sun even peeked its head out for a little visit, though it did not stay long.

Ireland just takes my breath away. It's fun to live in a country with such a rich history and with monuments to show some of its amazing past. It gets me every time.

This is my TWO-HUNDREDTH POST!!!! I can't believe i've written more than 200 posts (some of them have been privatized, some remain in "draft" form because what i wanted to say was not what i thought needed to be read...) and even more so, i can't believe that this month marks the two year anniversary of my little space on the internet!
SO i'm throwing a little party.
