In October of 2007 we realized our lifelong dream of moving to Ireland. Well, make that our year-long dream. We had no idea a year earlier we would be leaving our home in Austin, TX, much less moving to another country. Our last night in Austin was a harrowing experience that included a midnight trip to Walmart for a seventh suitcase and sock-sorting that should’ve been done weeks earlier. A bunch of stuff has happened since then. Our 16-month temporary transfer with my employer has turned into an indefinite stay.

Now we live and work in Dublin, travel as much as possible, explore any available cuisine and wait to see what happens next. We are way off-plan, here.
