Happy St. Patrick's Day from baby Ireland!

Top of the mornin' to ye!

I figured it was quite fitting to share why we named our girl Ireland today.

Oh guys, the country of Ireland is holds such significance to MVP and I. 

While living there, we adventured so well together. Ireland was a real life fairytale;  a young boy tearfully asking a young girl to be his proclaim his love forever. 

Yes, we were engaged on the very ledge of the Galway Bay. 
It was enchanting. Magnetic. Spiritual. 

Ireland was a land in which we harmoniously found residence and manufactured a life there...together.

It was so ridiculously FUN. 

It was brave, festive, merry, restful, royal, effortless, charming, developmental, and simple.

Ireland was dreamy and so was our devotion. 

We entered Ireland as courageous kids and departed committed forever. 

The playful memories dance in and out of our conversations so consistently. 

When it came to naming our daughter, Ireland was always greeted with smiles; joyfulness that we couldn't part with. 

Although many names graced our lips, we both knew that our firstborn was meant to be Ireland. 

You know what? 

We've NEVER looked back. 

To us, it is such a lyrical name; a name that holds tales of love, laughter, and loyalty. 

Not just because of our engagement, rather, a turning point in our maturity as a duo and as individuals.

Ireland was a foundation, one our marriage still stands firm on. 

It's such a honor naming our sweetest blessing yet, our daughter, Ireland. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day from our family to yours!
