Out again I go

...out of Ireland this time.

Leaving Dublin as I am writing those words. It's like the city is saying a quiet goodbye to me. Everything is sunny and warm and quiet outside, probably the first time I see the city like this. Or maybe it is just my heart that is feeling at peace with the city, finally, as I am making my way out. Feels like the city is wishing me goodluck. There is calmness in the air, sun shinning on my face and the nicest breeze coming through the window of the cab that is taking me to the airport. Through the village-like Ranelagh and the waters of the canal, St Stephen's Green and over the Liffey River that splits the city in two, driving by Mountjoy Square where I used to live. My eyes are drinking these last images while Michael Bubble is playing on the radio:

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

I close my eyes and I feel so at peace, finally. Bye bye Dublin. Regardless of it all, you brought me more than I could have ever hoped. It is now time of me to do another in n' out. Or rather, another out n' in :)

Leaving Ireland... in true dublin style :D

Leqving Dublin? Then you got to celebrate in the tur Irish way.... that is, drinking your way out in Temple bar with a funny group of lads. Oh those going away drinks!!!! My last night hanging out in the streets of Dublin...and shall I say, one I will remember for a loooooooong time. A BLAST.

Messy mess

Conversation between T and me this weekend, passing by a jewelry stand in the streets of New York:
T:"I wanna buy these earings for you! They are like you :)"
A: "Awww, you mean they are pretty?"
T: "Nah, I mean they are a mess. Messy earings for messy girl"

Seriously needed to remind me? :D

More wedding pics :)

The Wedding!!!!

A beautiful beautiful day, totally at the image of Bob and Lisa and the love they have for each other.

So here is a list of my 10 favorite things about the wedding - keeping my fingers crossed that I can keep it down to ten :)

1) The part of the vows that said "today I give you my heart, because it is the greatest gift I have to give to anyone" - awwwwwww teary eyes
2) Feeling all the emotions going on between Lisa and Bob as they wear saying their vows
3) The little flower girl going from all being sweet to totally mischievous, starting to throw rose petals at the audience :D
4) The CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!!!! - can't possibly beat that
5) Hearing Jennifer's smooth and beautiful voice to entertain us
6) Dancing away with the love of my life, not caring at who's watching
7) Jumping in the river, and drinking champagne from the middle of the water
8) Drinking Calvados with friends and family like it is water, hehehe
9) The father and bride dance, on "I love her first" - totally love this song and Jim totally made me cry
10) Hearing my father's toast at the wedding - he totally made me cry.

On the boat:"Splash! Just married. They made the big plunge!!"

The big Whole :) many Arizona natives call it. Grand Canyon. Last time I saw it was when I did the evening hike with my friend Emily. I wanna go hike it, raft it, bungee jump it, helicopter it, whatever it - but more than just look at it and take pretty pictures. just LIVE it!

Bachelor & Bachelorette parties :)


The boys: wearing girls underwear on their head, drinking bear upside down, etc etc. See, that's what real men do for a proper send-off to the groom-to-be. Go BOB go!
The girls: eating chocolate, making wedding dresses out of TP, TPing the boys house and running away breathless not to get caught, going to the bar and drinking beer out of Oh-so-appropriate-for-the-occasion straws and kicking ass at pool. Woohooo Lisa!

Who wins? Hehehehehe the girls of course :D

mmmm bob you look pretty

Do we want to know what followed???

Down in the monumental valley

How much I love this place. Space is so big around you it takes over everything, and feels your head and heart with this overwhelming feeling from the strengh of the nature around you. I've gone just about 10 times already, and would go back again in a heart beat.
