It began with a Honeymoon

In 2016 my husband Jeremy and I explored Ireland for our honeymoon. We spent 10 glorious days traveling around the perimeter of the country stopping in several cities, capturing their natural and man-made beauty.

Whole Widen World - Dingle peninsula, Ireland

We fell in love with the stunning beauty, deeply enchanting castles, and charming small towns.

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

After returning home, I just couldn’t get the magnificent landscape out of my head. I spent the next 9 months drawing, retouching photos, and writing how it made me feel. It became my love letter to Ireland. 

And then a book was formed.

I filled it with vibrant landscape photos taken from our trip, original whimsical illustrations and maps, Irish quotes, and more.
