the hive gathering



You are looking at a pile of heaven customized Nutella jars for The Hive, a European gathering of digital storytellers, tastemakers + bloggers. While the thought of scoring one of those jars gets me excited, I am even more thrilled to announce I’ll be a speaker at this year’s conference! I was so flattered when founder Yvonne Dewerne reached out to me and invited me to speak – it didn’t take me long to say yes. I’ve been anxious to attend since it’s inception, and this year it’s being held in Dublin! I cannot wait to explore Ireland and my Monahan roots (recommendations welcome). You can see the list of incredible speakers here (more to be announced) – tickets go on sale next week. Come join the fun in April!

  1. go fleurishing!! international travel + a conference with creatives sounds like a double win. Murphy’s in Dingle Bay is worth a trip – icecream made from local and natural produce, and they actually take salt right from the bay for their salted caramel flavor. The town itself is super charming too. OH and eat as much brown bread as possible. It’s everywhere, but tastes best when made by a friendly neighbor who notices you’re visiting (in my experience! Ha).

    • thank you Megan, I’m so excited! your recs sound amazing…checking them out now + adding them to my list, thank you so much! everything I’ve ever heard is that the Irish people are incredible – my Mom never stops talking about it, but then of course, she is one, HA!
