Summer Lovin' 2016 // Visual Diary
This Summer was the most jam packed, adventure filled, crazy, bursting with love, overload of friends and family 2 months of our lives! ... We started off at our home in Donegal, Ireland getting ready for the celebration of the year -- OUR WEDDING DAY! We had a guest list of 175 and over 40 people staying on the property, everything was completely DIY -- so you can imagine the type of June we had! All the stress and hard work was for sure worth it to see our friends and family from all over the world come together. More wedding photos will be coming soon, don't worry!

DONEGAL -> SLIGO -> GALWAY -> CLIFFS OF MOHER
After the big day we took our family and friends on a 5 day road trip down the Wild Atlantic Way on the West Coast of Ireland... Planning a wedding and then a 40 person road trip was so insane... I for sure need to get my head checked, but we had the times our lives and Keith had the best time acting as tour guide.

NICE, CANNES, ST. TROPEZ [[FRANCE]] -> MONACO
We are so fortunate to have some of the most loving, fun and generous friends. Two of them who we've grown to love like our own family invited us to join them on a French Riviera cruise. It might seem odd to some to spend your honeymoon with a group of other couples, but it was THE BEST TIME EVER. The last night with the group we went around saying our favorite part of the trip and no one could pick one place. But everyone agreed that the company was at the top of the list.

CINQUE TERRE, FLORENCE, PISA, LAKE GARDA, PORTOFINO [[ITALY]]
After our amazing time on the boat, Keith and I headed down to Italy for a spontaneous road trip. We rented a Porsche 911 [ keith's fave car ] and just cruised. We hit some pretty amazing spots and ate some pretty amazing pizza and drank some pretty amazing wine. This trip was hilarious because we did not plan ANYTHING. I think sometimes that is the best way to do it. We also broke down in the middle of no where, didn't speak any Italian and had to spend the night in a roach motel. Probably one of the best memories. My favorite was the hike through the Cinque Terre towns, definitely a buckle list check off for me!

Life is such a wonderful adventure. We are so happy to be able to share what we love. Ready to get back to work, refill the site with tons of more goods from around the globe for you. This summer will forever live in our hearts.
What have you guys been up to all Summer?!
