I am torn between the idea of moving on, finding new adventures and making a new home; and this place, where I started my career, we fell in love, where we welcomed Eamon home and where we have so many friends.
I never intended to be here this long. I thought, 'three years and I'll be back at the coast'. I remember when I first moved, all the locals told me - 'oh you'll marry a local and you'll never leave'. I laughed at them at the time, but I guess they got the last laugh.
We will move on, at some point. But for now I will remind myself to appreciate this place, for all that it gives us. This afternoon Eamon and walked around town, slow and aimlessly because I was tired and he was cranky and the weather wasn't the best. And occasionally we stopped to just watch, or play, and take photos.
