Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Here is a look into what our weekend looked like:
 Dublin in Rainbows + Sunsets
 We went to the International Craft Beer Fest on Friday with a group of friends.
Forest Avenue which has been rated one of the best new restaurants in Dublin. I concur.
Oh... and did I mention I was taking French. So hard. I've resorted back to flashcards.
And my French so far is about as jumbled as those cards. Eek!

Today I am spending the day taking my cousin around Dublin! She is in town for work and I couldn't be more excited to see her! Makes for a great start to the week.

Gorgeous photos of the rainbow and sunset!! Super jealous about that craft beer fest! I took French in college and I'm lucky to remember what I do now. Stick with it, its a beautiful language! The SpeakEasy French app is really helpful and there are some conjugation apps out there that help too!

So so awesome that you are taking French. Is hubby learning it with you or does he speak it already? I am supposed to be learning Italian 1.bc it is on my bucket list and 2. because we are going there in May. I haven't gotten very far on my own. Probably need a class.
Looks like a great weekend!

You go girl learning French! That's something I wouldn't even dare to attempt! It's sounds so gorgeous when it's spoken though!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

The beer festival sounds so fun! I have been trying to learn Italian and it is hard. Flash cards really do help though.
