Ahhhh Christmas break went TOO FAST! It was such an amazing time. Watching Jen and her college team (Messiah) in San Juan, Puerto Rico was so awesome. They are currently undefeated (11-0) and have such a deep bench. They were cool to watch and hang out with. It was also nice to be in 80 degree weather with a lot of sunshine 🙂 My mom and I explored Old San Juan, visited a beautiful fort, and hung by the hotel pool. We were going to go snorkeling one day but it was cancelled due to high winds and choppy water 🙁 It was such a nice time! 

Home in Pennsylvania was also splendid. It felt like I hadn’t been gone long at all. I saw so many loved ones and was able to catch up with them. I saw my Saint Joe’s girls and coaches, some former teammates/friends, friends from college, my bestie from high school, my mentor from church, and of course, some of my extended family. Everyone was eager to ask me how things have been going in Ireland. It was so wonderful and I am so lucky I was able to make the trip home!

Now it’s back to the grind here in the Dub with our National Cup game this Saturday and training sessions leading up to it. Not to mention all the studying I need to do up until my finals next week. YUCK. We’ll see how it goes!

P.S. Happy 2017!!!!!
