My husband and I both have Irish ancestors, and I can't help but think about my great great grandparents coming to the United States under very different circumstances than those under which I will go to their homeland. These people that I know very little about, those that I come from, have been on my mind. Throughout the adventures I know that we will have, I also want to learn more about my "roots". More about myself.
I love my life here in New York, but I am so grateful to have a chance to live in a new place. I will miss my friends and family and I hope that they will come visit and Skype us a lot! The preschool application process will just have to go on without us. (smirk)
