My Charmed Life...

Every so often, I get to step into a dream called Carnlough.  Carnlough is my happy place.  It's a small village in Nothern Ireland (pop. 2100).  and where I met my husband 14 years ago this summer.  Carnlough is part of the Glens of Antrim with beautiful rolling hills on one side and the sea on the other.  As I write this, I am lucky to be spending a few weeks in this very spot with family and friends that we don't get to see enough of.   My favorite things about Carnlough:
beauty beyond words
empty and beautiful beaches
cows lounging on the beaches
all of the Irish cousins together for the first time ever
village festivals filled with fancy dress parades (costume parties for kids) (our kids just happened to win this year with Declan Maguire and his Minions)
some of the best food ever.  The cheese, soda bread, chocolate, sausages are so much better than at home.
Freedom for my kids,.. they can run around so much more here
It is pure heaven......
