We loved Northern Ireland much more than we expected. Actually, we had no expectations, so it was a bit of a surprise!

We ended up spending more time in Belfast than originally planned, as we were just making a stop through on our way to the Dark Hedges and Giant’s Causeway.

After stopping for a quick lunch, we decided to stay awhile and explore.  The City Hall, Queens University of Belfast, and the Royal Botanical Garden’s were our favorite stops.


We could have spent a lot more time in the botanical garden’s as the Rose Garden was in full bloom and the Palm House was really beautiful.  The weather cooperated enough to allow us about 3 hours in total to walk around and explore the rose garden without getting wet.

We did duck into a cafe quickly to re-caffeinate ourselves and avoid a quick shower.  We ended up loving the cute cafe, which had some entertaining name choices for their Chai Lattes.





I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.

    This must become a book. Now or down the road……the book.
