I’m a California girl living and blogging on a tillage farm in Kildare. Last spring, on the sandy beaches of my native land, I fell in love with an Irish farmer. There wasn’t a thing to do but follow him home, so here I am. Life now consists of making art, blogging, gardening, occasional farm chores (I can drive a John Deere), experimenting in the kitchen, and, of course, spending time with my boyfriend fiance husband.

I also have an etsy shop:

  1. Simon is the luckiest guy on the planet and beyond, and I really hope and pray that he knows that. I hope he loves you and cherishes you the way you deserve to be, and I hope he continues to make you more and more happy every single moment for the rest of your life. You’re one of the strongest, and most aspiring people in my life, and I know that you will always be a huge part of my life. I think God put me in your life to remind you how remarkably beautiful you are, as you lost sight of that very fact for so long. You came into my life during a time when I needed a friend who wouldn’t make me a choice, or depreciate who I am as a person. I needed someone to further enlighten my dark, and dysfunctional path. Of course, on February 1, 2012, all had changed when you sat next to me in Oceanography. I wrote an email to our teacher thanking him for the many opportunities and learning experiences he provided to me, but most especially for being the pathway that led me to you.

    Ruth, I love you and cannot wait to see you 🙂

  2. Hi Ruth!
    You got me into looking up stuff on that ruin. Came across this on the Irish Census for 1901. I think it could be the house. Looks like they’re english and the head of the house is Lady Julia Carden who is listed as being a widow. In both the 1901 and the 1911 census they have guest staying who are presumably over from England (based on their religion). Pity there’s only online census info available for those 2 years but you guys should take the research further!

  3. Hello! You don’t have to post this comment to your page, I just wanted to thank you for bringing the error in my Dublin post to my attention. I don’t know how I made that mistake, but I’m glad you caught it! Congratulations on your engagement and happy blogging!

  4. Hi Ruth, I am looking for a mother culture for kombucha – do you have one to pass on? I can collect. Thanks and good luck with the yurt/nest making.

    • I don’t actually have any scobys at the moment, sorry! It is funny- I had loads for months, but it wasn’t until I composted all of them that I started getting requests. Of course, right? Anyway, you can get them really cheap on ebay- that is where I got mine from. Good luck!
