Dublin's snow from the last week is finally starting to melt. We had a good 8 inches or so over a week which is very unusual for Dublin. So, of course, the city practically shut down. Mackenzie is a regular snowbunny. But TJ could definitely live without it. We're hoping for a White Christmas now. But you can never predict Irish weather!

La Sagrada Familia - by far the most beautiful church interior I've seen and definitely the most original architecture. My favorite part though is that it is a modern building meant to last. It seems that we in the modern era just don't do that anymore.
We chose Barcelona to celebrate my three decades of existence. I've heard many people express their love for the city of Barcelona. I honestly didn't buy into the hype. I love traveling in Spain, and didn't think Barcelona would make me swoon for the country any more than I already do. I was wrong. Barcelona is an amazing and unique city. It is like one giant piece of art to explore. And we were fortunate to see Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia with a finished interior. In fact, the pope had been there just 7 days earlier to bless the newly completed masterpiece as a basilica. I was much slower than usual being 30 weeks pregnant and might have overdone it a bit. But I'm glad I got to see such a beautiful place. And it was a great way to celebrate 30 years of living.
