Weekend Preface

Six weeks in.

I’ve been going to classes in Ireland for six weeks already. I’m baffled, I’m incredulous, I’m flabbergasted! The time has slithered past me quickly and in the most wonderful way, but if I’m being completely honest, I’m ready for a break. Luckily for me, in my time of need (as in any), God provides – this coming week is midterm break for the IES Program! Praise! This is a week where there are absolutely no classes and the week is mine to use for whatever I like.

In another stroke of luck, what I’d like to do is hang out with people who love me, specifically my family and guess what?! I’m happy to announce that my loving family is visiting me and my sister over break! We are so blessed to have them come and visit us and be apart of the Dublin culture we’ve become so used to over the past months.

This is my family! We are very close and I couldn't be happier that they're visiting me here in Dublin soon!

This is just a little preface to what is coming: my family and I traveling around Ireland for a bit, then heading to Salzburg, Austria. My parents are HUGE Sound of Music fans, and that is where most of the film takes place. So, readers, be on the lookout for future blog posts because I’ll have tons of pictures, words to share, and most likely lessons that I’ve learned throughout this time of rest and relaxation.

Make this weekend a great one!

Until next time.
