Christmas in the States

January 2nd, 2015 | Uncategorized

Words can’t even begin to describe how great it was to be home for 2 weeks. While I do love it here in Ireland, I loved spending the holidays at home and seeing my family and friends, which I haven’t seen in 4 months. It was so nice to see so many friends whom I haven’t seen in a while. While there is Skype, email, and text, nothing is quite the same as seeing someone face to face and being able to talk to them and catch up! I was even able to bring back a little bit of Ireland and have a one-sie party 🙂


I also got the opportunity to go back to my alma mater and cheer on my Greyhounds and see former teammates and friends! Go Hounds!! I was also very fortunate to be home to support and watch my dad coach Georgetown Prep, the high school boys team he coaches. Over the years and after putting in hours and hours of practice and drilling in that gym with those boys, Prep has become another family and home for me. So it was great to be able to go to their games and support them!


Time definitely did fly… It’s hard to believe it’s been two weeks and it’s time for me to return to Galway. My parents and Brandon took me to the airport to say goodbye and I’m not going to lie, there definitely were some tears. Saying goodbye is never easy, but it was time for me to continue my journey in Ireland! I love you all.
