Yesterday, I made my trek back across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America. It was a long journey, but I’m glad to be back home. Aideen and I woke up very early in the morning to drive to Shannon Airport. We arrived in perfect time, which gave us the opportunity for one… Continue reading Day 15: Going Home
Again, I’m writing this post a day late. You know the drill. Yesterday was my last full day in Ireland. Although it was sad to leave the beautiful country, it was the perfect way to close my trip. The morning was slow moving. I had to repack my luggage, which wasn’t as bad as I… Continue reading Day 14: County Clare

I was drawn to the novel by its title–only the second book I’ve seen to have… Continue reading Day 11: Absolute Relaxation

Definitely a lovely way to start our morning!… Continue reading Day 10: Dublin (round 2) and Newgrange
I am writing this post a day late since I was beyond exhausted yesterday evening. After a delicious breakfast and Sunday mass, Aunt Patti Ellen and I made our way to see my cousins. We called in first to see Deborah and her boyfriend, Mark. They had just gotten back from London where they were… Continue reading Day 9: Field Day with my Cousins!
