Almost 3 years after I moved to small town Ireland, I am just beginning to feel at home. Home in my own skin, in my own house, home as I navigate through the streets, as I shop, as I start to chit chat to shopkeepers and fundraisers. At home as I see someone I know while driving, scream happy new year and become a surprising recipient of a quick sloppy kiss on the cheek.

My heart is finally here…
