Where It All Began...

We are so excited to start on this incredible next phase of our lives, and to share it with all of our friends and family! Since we are launching this blog to keep our nearest and dearest up to date on our lives while we are living so far from home, we thought it would be appropriate to share how it all began. 

I was anxiously awaiting the news hard at work on my thesis when I received my official job offer. I immediately called Cory (who was on his way home from work) and he somehow managed to decipher my excited jumble of words.

When our move to Ireland was first made official, neither of us could keep smiles off of our faces. 
The following few days were a flurry of activity.  While we had already started to organize, pack, and sell our stuff (more on that later!), this put us into high gear.  We spent a good portion of the next few days getting in touch with friends and family to share the news; everyone has been wonderful and incredibly supportive. Now the details are all falling into place: our house will be sold in June and we fly out on our one-way tickets in July with a Homeless Vagabond Farewell to America Road Trip in between!
