Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bluebirds Fly

BluebirdIreland.ie was conceived in April 2018. The previous ten years had left me feeling like I had been hit by a tornado, but somehow the twister landed me in my own, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow,' when I got the opportunity to rent a fairy tale, thatched cottage by the sea, in the picturesque village of Dunmore East, where I am lucky to still reside today & where I am learning day by day, to live a different way of life,  letting my ‘troubles melt like lemon drops’ & appreciating every little bluebird of happiness that comes my way, Sophie

You can find me on twitter @sophiebeltweet but I will soon be tweeting @bluebirdireland & @sophiebelauthor. Come say hi!
