Adios Dublin!

Matt and I will no longer be living in Dublin as of April 15th. We're heading to Galway for a change of scenery and to look for work, so we won't be receiving mail at our Dublin addresses anymore (at the apartment or at USIT). If we decide to settle somewhere, I'll be sure to give you our new address!

Thank you for your cards, notes, postcards and packages. I love getting them!

Spring, Sprang, Sprung

Spring has sprung! I never thought I'd be saying that so soon. And actually, the first day of Spring in Ireland was February 1st. I couldn't help but notice the change in weather and scenery on my way to work yesterday. I thought I'd give you an early taste of Spring by sharing some pictures of buds and blooms that I took in the Dublin Castle gardens.

Chester Beatty Library in the background, where I am no longer employed. They wouldn't give me the time off to travel with my family, so I had to quit. Luckily, I can still work up until they come - and I'll need to, because I certainly need the moolah!

And when I got home from work, I was greeted by a rainbow right off of our balcony. I bet there really were leprechauns and a big pot of gold at the end of this one!
