Last week I drove the winding, narrow roads from Derryherbert to Galway. The two-hour excursion took me from my idyllic country cottage to an equally idyllic â€śCity by the Bay.â€ť
Our team can't wait to travel to the Emerald Isle in honor of the new branch office opening in Clifden, County Galway, Ireland. We're also launching artist Justin Gaffrey in Ireland with an exclusive art show there and will be experiencing the Connemara region as they celebrate their 2014 Connemara Pony Festival!
The 2013 event showcased premier national music acts and locally harvested seafood prepared by the best local chefs and restaurants. It would be a weekend-long event complete with a fishing tournament, 5K road race, and family-friendly activities. Festival organizers hoped to develop a well-established, major annual event that will draw large numbers of attendees from both the immediate area and the feeder markets serving Panama City Beach, and now have turned to The Idea Boutique to help do it again this year.
The last time I was in Ireland was seven years ago in 2007. My grandparents took me over for a whirlwind two-week trip to our ancestral home. Returning on my own has given me the chance to visit to those places so important to Mimi and Papa, allowing me to understand and cultivate a deep love for the Connemara area while helping to set up The Idea Boutique's new office.
With features on everything from big cats to horses to parrots and much more, we think our readers will get a special experience from this upcoming issue, and we want to share that special joy that comes from animals by giving back 10 percent of ad revenue for this issue to an organization that loves themâ€”Alaqua Animal Refuge.
