Autumn at It's Best

Scoop:

This blog started as a photo blog to showcase the eye for beauty of my husband. To honour him on his special day, allow me to share few of his recent snaps while reconnecting with nature. This is his idea of unwinding. Happiest Birthday my sweetheart. 



Snaps:

Lord Iveagh's Clocktower or Farmleigh Clock Tower was erected at 1880. It is 37 metres in height and the walls are 1.22 metres thick at the ground reducing as it ascends. The tower itself has a water tank inside that contains more than 8000 litres, enough to provide private water supply for the Farmeligh estate.

"Mister Guinness has a clock
And on its top a weathercock
To show the people Castleknock"

Purchased by the Irish Government in 1999 from the Guinness Family for €29.2 million

78 acres estate to the north-west of Dublin's Phoenix Park

The estate are highly surrounded by big trees which made it more pleasing to human eyes. On summer days, people can lay down their mats and have a picnic anywhere under the tree. On autumn, don't forget your camera as the beauty still exists in every falling leaf.



Even on autumn, flowers are blooming. 



Winter is just around the corner evident by the trees bearing no leaves at all.

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
