Welcome to Southern Comfort!

Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I invite you to grab a glass of sweet tea and join me as I (along with my husband, John) renovate our love nest. We're both born and raised in the south and love to share with you some of our favorite recipes, stories and our life. We hope you'll come back often!

so it's been a while...

Wow! Hi y'all!
Man, I seem to be taking more and more time away from here huh? Bad blogger (insert me slapping hand here). But I've been away for good reason. I didn't want to mention it before hand, but the hubs and I took a long vacation away. We went (along with the rest of my family) to Ireland. For a week. And yes, it was every bit as green, luscious, and fabulous as you imagine.

So this week has been busy busy trying to get things back to a normal pace. Our grass grew a foot while we were gone and it is still up to our knees. Lets hope we can tackle that this weekend (so the neighbors don't start complaning). We have had little to no food in the house, so planning meals has been a challenge. Hot dogs anyone? Not to mention, after a week of being away the house needs to be dusted and vacuumed again. Just because we went on vacation, doesn't mean the cats didn't play nice and not shed while we were away. Work has been very challenging for us both this week trying to get caught up and we're just so darn tired. So, please forgive my absence.

We have our travel bug out of our system now for this year, so I'll be back a lot more frequently to tackle some much-awaited projects around the house.

So while I am working hard on trying to pull our life back together, I'm going to leave you with some photos of our trip. If you've been to Ireland, you know how spectacular it is. If you haven't, it's a "must-go" kind of place. Enjoy and I'll see you next week!


On the left, the most precious chickens I've ever come across. They led us up the trail to thier coop, just to show us their digs. I'd say they were quite the hostesses!
The photo on the right was taked at Clonmacnoise, a monastery built around 500 a.d.
 Auchnanure castle on the left, countryside looking into the town of Doolin.




















Beautiful countryside overlooking the mountains of The Burren.



Antique shop on the left in Ventry, and the marina in the town of Dingle on the right.  

 

Scariest moment of the trip!




















Baby lambs freckled the countryside. So sweet.

















Old castle at Clonmacnoise and Irish countryside. But check out the curves of the roads!

 The famous cliffs of Moher and Dingle penninsula.

 
 



The coastline of the town Doolin




I took some pictures specifically for the blog, so be looking for those coming up :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
