Irish Mum living in London. I grew up in the south west of Ireland in a place called Ballybunion. Stunning part of Ireland, spending most of my childhood on the beach. I have two brothers and always wanted a sister (no offence boys 😜) but my Mum was one of 14 so I had lots and lots of cousins which still today feel like sisters. So lucky but just wish we could see each other more often than we do. We are all really close but yes my Nana had 14 children. Imagine!
At the age of 17 I went to University in Galway where I studied Maths and Computers. During the summer months I travelled spending my time in Florida, Chicago and the Hamptons. Days that funnily enough I’ve been re-living in my mind a lot lately. Especially my time in Southampton. I guess being in lockdown with 2 kids and struggling with keeping it all together some days, I think back to those days when I didn’t have a care in the world but at the time didn’t realise how lucky I was. But honestly, I know even in those days I dreamed of these days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward 2010 I met Marcus on a ski trip in Austria. In 2011 I moved to London for work and Marcus and I started dating. We lived it up in London Town and 18 months later we moved in together. He kept me waiting for a while but finally proposed in August 2014 in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. What a day!! November 2015 we got married in Ballyseede Castle in Ireland close to where my parents live. The day was everything I dreamed off. September 2016 Jorja was born and to have a little girl, I was over the moon. December 2018 little Jazmine arrived on the morning of my birthday. A little best friend for Jorja.
And here we are today living our best lockdown life. We are planning to buy our first home this year which is exciting and Jorja will start school in 2021.
My parents are in Kerry and can’t wait for us to get home with the girls. One of my bros lives in Germany who also has 2 girls and my other bro lives in HK living his best life. ❣️
