Breaking in the Blog

Hello all!

Ive decided now that I've moved to the other side of the Atlantic that I would start chronicling my experiences living as an offical ex-pat. I guess I should start with why I am where I am.

This is me and James, my husband- who is an Irish national. We got married after a 4 year friendship and year relationship. It wasn't a hard decision to make knowing that we wanted to be together, but making the decision to move...not as easy!

I've been living in Ireland, Limerick more specifically for a little over two months now- and while its new and exciting and I feel like I'm learning new things every day, its definately a challenge. Being so far away from home and everything I know, and completely out of any normal routine that I had back in the states has been the biggest challenge. I guess thats part of the growing process and trust me I've got plenty of growing to do!

I'm new to this blog writing process and I hope that you all can bear with me while i work my kinks out and hopefully I will find other things to do here than complain about cold weather and rain!

  4. I follow your sisters blog from Brazil and she sent us over here. Congrats on getting married and may you be blessed with many years together. It´s hard to get married and get accustomed to a new country at the same time, but I´m sure you´ll do fine.
