In May I wrote about beginning So I Married Adventure, and as predicted, my progress was stalled by a few other books. Most recently this one, O Come Ye Back to Ireland. While looking for travel books on Paris and Morocco at my library, this one caught my eye. There it was on the shelf, cover facing me and all. I'm still reading my way through it, but here's the synopsis: a couple from New York decide to move to Ireland for a year. They resign from their jobs, pack up a few belongings, and move to a small village in County Clare. She is an artist, he is a writer.
While searching for the book image, I landed on their website. A long list of books and life and adventures continue after this one. And now I've found inspiration from their words and pictures that make this idea of mine even more real and do-able. If Niall and Christine could pick up and move to Ireland, do what they love, adopt children and travel the world as a family, I trust this is possible for my life as well.
Inspiration when you're really not looking for it. Blessings.


  1. I love it, Jill! So many people are talking about making their dreams come true - and the first step, is to take the first step! :) Sounds like you're on your way! Awesome!

  2. Do I foresee a book club trip to visit you in Ireland?? Wowsers!
