F i n a l l y



Something amazing is happening this weekend.

(No, not me blogging twice in one week even though that is fairly spectacular.)

I'm moving.

After four and a half years of living like a gypsy, splitting my time between Dublin, London, Copenhagen (I kept that one close to the chest), and my mother's in Texas, I finally get to be still.

I know that the thought of unpacking box upon box is horrible to some, but for me, I'm elated! After four and half years, I'm unpacking kitchen boxes into MY kitchen, putting books on shelves in MY living room, and hanging clothes in MY closet.

I could go on and on and wax-poetic about all of the feelings I'm feeling but I don't have that kind of time.

Because I'm moving.

Finally.

Confession



Confession: I miss blogging.

Bigger Confession: It’s difficult to blog when life hasn’t been going swimmingly and you’re not sure what to say, and what you actually should say, or more importantly, what you should not say.

I will say this though. I love my husband. He loves me. But unfortunately life isn’t always that simple. I’m in Texas and he isn’t, for far too many reasons and complications to list here. (Really, it’s been ALL THE DRAMA. ALL OF IT).

And truthfully, I would have returned to this space sooner if it wasn’t for the perpetual state of limbo that I find myself in. Because although we got the spousal visa, my happily-ever-after has still not arrived, and honestly, it might not. I may have to consider a different happy ending. One that looks very different than originally hoped for.

I’m here and he’s not, but I want to be back here-here, as in blogging here.

And there it is.

So, I’m going to try and come back, and I’m not totally sure what I’ll even be blogging about or how often, but I’m pretty-please asking if you can hold off on any personal questions. Just know that I’m good and whatever will be, will be. C’est la vie.

À bientôt mes amis [ kiss emojis ].

P.S. Fifty’s good too. He said to say hi.

Well Your Faith Was Strong But You Needed Proof



On the last mail day of 2017 (or post day if you're so inclined), this finally happened.

It only took 1501 days.

And it only took me 59 days to tell you about it (but in fairness, I did tell Facebook).

Here's another fun number...

It's been 473 days since I've popped in here, hopefully it won't take me 473 to pop in again.

Tu me manques.
