I was born a Wisconsinite raised there and in Iowa and now I am living in Michigan.  I have lived a happy life with many thrills, yet there have been some chills on my ride as well. 

My Mister Kennedy and I were married in 1997. Life for us is simple, fun, easy and retired. We enjoy traveling here and there, spending time with one another and our families.
I enjoy a great book, a glass of wine, travel, varying landscapes, the color green, flowers, gardening and creating pleasant outdoor and indoor spaces.  

I like authentic, civility, honesty and kindness.  I love being around people with a great sense of humor, enjoy a good laugh and as well, about myself. 

Mister Irish Garden House and I adore our dog Snickers.

I have loved meeting new friends here in the blogging world and hope that you will continue to visit me often.

We visited Ireland for the first time in 1998.  We stayed at a friend's cottage in Bantry, Co Cork and slept in this garden house. There were windows on the far side facing Bantry Bay and off to the left, the Atlantic Ocean.

We fell in love with Ireland and have been fortunate to visit much of the country from Dublin to Shannon, south along the coast and villages in between.  We enjoy going off the beaten path, searching the history, stone circles, grave stones. abandoned cottages, walking the hills and more...

We dream about the possibility of having our own cottage there one day.  Not sure if that will ever happen, but if not, you'll find us enjoying our life, living at home along the western shoreline of Michigan.

My Irish Garden House blog was born out of memories of Ireland.  I enjoy telling and writing about the stories of my life and my photographs.  You can count on seeing many pictures of my flowers and gardens...and no doubt some snowy ones too.

 Thank you for following along with me.
