Shrouded in history and mystery, the majestic sight of Kylemore Castle at Connemara, Galway County, Ireland brought back the pure wonder and beauty of schoolgirl dreams yet to be realized. The love story behind the twentieth century castle made it that much more beautiful. It seemed fitting, in lieu of the tragedy that left the lord of the castle to mourn the loss of his princess, that the castle eventually become a home for Benedictine Nuns and a school for Catholic girls.
Every girl deserves her prince charming; and an education, for staying the course when kissing all those toads seems to render the dream something akin to a nightmare.
Humble abode aside, my life with my prince has been a blessing, the stuff of fairy tales and fantasy.
