IONA FAY NAMING AIRSTREAM CONTEST WINNER ANNOUNCED! Congratulations to Kristina Marie, who submitted the winning entry for her daughter, Kate!
The new name of the Airstream is “Aoife Aeir Annon!” In Gaelic, it means, “Celtic female warrior Air Stream.” I love the strong, Celtic words along with how it not only reflects the glamper but also The Adventure of Iona Fay series!
Kristina will be sent the Iona Fay crystal necklace found on page 10 in Iona Fay: An Irish Fairy Tale. Enjoy!
Thank you everyone who participated! I was hard to choose a winner. Everyone of the suggestions were so creative, and I loved reading all of them.
In the words of Rachel, we’re still on our “Fay-cation!” Wendy Farrell Stay with us, have fun and join the journey!
Hand to heart, prior 10:07 am EST there was only one omelette that held the title of “best omelette.” It is The Gastonian in Savannah. That title is now at risk!
The photos show the omelette Jessie made me. This Buffalo Mountain Omelette is now tied for first place!
Here’s what makes her omelette so delish: we went into her garden, freshly picked our own herbs (sage, onion, chives, banana pepper, jalapeño, nasturtium), a little butter, parmesan and cheddar, Jessie’s magic with a skillet, and we ate it with a view of Buffalo Mountain.
If you go to the retreat, a blissful day awaits guests while enjoying yoga, meditation and delicious food.
Thank you, Jessie, for your open heart and hospitality! XO
On Monday, we spent the night in the sky! We were looking for air fairies and swear we heard them on the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The air is so pure. It sounds strange, but, hand to heart, it is the best smelling air. It is intoxicating.
To get this view, I spent 30 minutes backing up inch by inch, leaving us less than a foot of wiggle room…or else we were going over a cliff. A blissful, beautiful cliff, mind you. But a cliff, nonetheless. I was neither keen on that, nor was I certain about the guidance from the man holding a downing beers, who was guiding me in the spot. It was touch and go for a while. Finally, we backed in and called it a night.
The next morning, we were up early, communing with the air fairies along the road. Can you hear their blue grass tunes in the wind?
Did you know that Iona Fay went on a book tour across the United States, starting on the East Coast and ending on the West Coast in 2017?
Many of you followed us across the United States in Aoife the Airsteam. For those of you who missed it, I’m moving those blog posts over here.
We kicked off the weekend with a trip to Joran Lake in North Carolina. While there, we went boating, paddle boarding and read from Iona Fay, book 1.
For more photos of the journey, check out the AdventuresOfIonaFay Instagram account, where you can see the fantastic trip as it unveils itself this summer. (If anyone has connections at Instagram, please let me know. I’ve since been cut out of this account. Thanks!)
Thanks to Kim, Dana, Nora, Tom, Sheena, Gay, Erin, Koury and Jack for making the launch day a memorable weekend!!!
