I've been a roller coaster of emotions the past few days preparing for this adventure. I'm close with my family and friends, so leaving them was really tough. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year now (in March!) and I was really worried about how doing the long distance would go, but I'm 100% sure, it will work out just fine :) We have a solid relationship, and I have all my confidence in it.
Today was day 1 on this adventure, and although I ended up soaked from the rain and muddied my shoes, it was a wonderful day. Any day is a good day to be in Ireland!
