Ireland Then and Now

Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and it got me bad.

A couple months ago I was going through my mom’s hard drive with all the family pictures on it, and stumbled across a folder full of scanned pictures taken of my maternal grandparents– from about the 1950’s to 2017. I also noticed a couple similarities between pictures they took in Ireland when they lived there/visited and the ones I took the last few times I was in Ireland. I thought I’d share those with the internet, since we all seem to love this sort of thing. I love Ireland, and having physical proof that we’ve all stood in the same places is kind of amazing. So, enjoy these pictures and make sure to call your grandparents today.

I have quite a few more pictures, but honestly I didn’t want to share them with the internet. I’m a jealous person and wanted to keep those memories for myself. I hope you enjoyed these photos though. They mean everything to me. My family means everything to me. We don’t always get along, and are horrible at expressing our feelings, but they’re my family and I don’t know who I’d be without them–probably a dog person.

I know we all have family from different parts of the world, so if you have any stories or you just want to share any memories you have, feel free to comment below! I’d love to hear about them.

I’ll be posting more about my actual trip to Ireland sometime next month. I’ll also be traveling to Canada in mid-April, so make sure to subscribe to this blog, or follow me on Instagram, to ensure you don’t miss anything!
