Not an April Fools!

In the blink of an eye, this Irish Monarchy site quietly turned five years old. What you may not know is that I also helped run another website, Nursing Decoded, for the past three years. Today, with help from technology wizards, we decided to merge both sites to have one place for everything! So, what does this mean??


So what is Nursing Decoded? We (a collection of amazing Nurse Practitioners) want everyone to better understand healthcare, their own personal health, as well as achieve optimal mental and physical wellness.

How do we hope to do this? By education. We have “courses” and also “consulting” options via our Teachable website – so make sure you check that out. It’s still a bit under construction but will be great once we load more amazing classes by this summer.

You’ll find a lot of “newer” articles on this website as of April 4, 2022. Almost all were written in 2020 and 2021. While technology is amazing, there are always some bumps in the road. Over the next few days going to ensure everything is updated but couldn’t wait to share our news today!


Is anything happening to Irish Monarchy?? NOPE. Same main website, just a bit more on the Medicine side going forward. There are so many things I haven’t been able to share these last few months/years that I am so excited to share. Crochet. C2C Blankets. ANOTHER mystery trip. Career pivot (again!). Genealogy discoveries. Travel. Cooking! Gardening. The list keeps growing – I can’t wait to share more!

Why the change now?

Because the last two years have been a learning experience – and taught us we do not want to be managing two different websites. We plan on sharing our website experiences with you all over the next few weeks – cause it is hilarious what we have been trying to do while managing our lives, kids, careers during the pandemic!

We also plan to keep things simple. While social media is the way to spread our message to everyone – we also don’t want to be tied to our computers every day. Once we streamline what platforms we plan to use – you’ll be the first to know!

What to expect!

MORE. REGULAR. POSTS. While it felt like we went radio silent (ok, we did) we had so much in the background that we wanted to do and share but just couldn’t. Our posts will not only cover Nursing Decoded in the Irish Monarchy world of Medicine – but you’ll also get a bit of Irish Monarchy worlds of Mom and Memories (and a sprinkle of the rest of the craziness that makes up my world!).

So stay tuned – so much more to come!

    Aw love this! Simplicity really is key & will help take some of that extra pressure off.
    And there are sooooo many social platforms now that it really can be so time consuming trying to create content for every place. Good luck with the transition. Can’t wait to see what’s in store.

    I can’t wait to see the new website. I had two blog websites and found it was too much. So I to merged them and have been happy with the drop in work load. You are going to love it.

    I’ve been wondering where you guys were! 🔎 So glad you’re back and have some exciting projects ahead. Theast two years have been unexpected for all of us and what we would have time to do, we sometimes didn’t lol. I’m looking forward to reading more from you!

    I totally understand merging the two! I create for two blogs also and sometimes wish I had not started a second one. However one is very health related and the other is travel and lifestyle so the niches are very different. It’s hard to focus equally though on each one.
