While we were back in NY last month, we went through some of the stuff we left in storage over there, and carted some of it back with us. One of the things Liz brought back, were letters that I wrote to her while we were dating. I was reading some of them yesterday (I'd like to think I'm a better person 24 years later).
So, while we were traveling in Europe this summer, each one of us had things we had places we wanted to visit... Liz wanted to reconnect with family that she had not seen in 25 years. Hannah wanted to visit Navan Fort, Erin wanted to go to Blarney Castle, Brenna wanted to go horseback riding, and I wanted to visit the Guinness factory...I was the only one who didn't get to their destination.
At our recent church business meeting I announced to our church that I am taking a sabbatical this year. Since not everyone was at the business meeting, and since we didn't go into a lot of details there, I figured I'd go into a bit more detail and answer some of the questions I've been asked.
