I've been musing a trip home for years now, and have no doubt frustrated friends and family with my repeated promises. But on Friday, I finally bought my ticket for Dublin in April. Besides a whirlwind week for a wedding, I haven't been home in more than five years!
Funny, the minute I booked the ticket and let myself really start imagining home, I felt the deepest homesickness aching in me. Worse than I've ever had. I can't wait to taste salt air on my lips. It's also nice to end 2008 with one concrete plan for the new year.
