Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes: Ireland

Last week I was on vacation in Ireland. I had  been there once before, so I knew of it's striking beauty and friendly people. Yet, I still was blown away by the gorgeous cliffs, amazing castles, and rich history. Those memories will stay with me for a long time. This week's Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes are all about the Emerald Isle, its history, & its writers. I interspersed some of my favorite vacation photos in there too. Enjoy!
