It's Been A Year!

I can not even decide where to begin. A year. A FULL flipping year, ALREADY! So much has happened, it's unreal! A good year and a half to two years it was in the making. Hidden Gems Ireland. What started off as a vision, became a passion, and now a full blown calling. We've been through so much to make it here. A year later. Learned so much. Through the ups and downs, trials and errors, the good, the bad, and yes, the down right U-G-L-Y....we made it. As HGI slowly draws to a close (only a couple more episodes left y'all๐Ÿ˜ฅ), I reflect on all the lessons learned. The blessings bestowed upon Van and I, to have met some of the most amazing people who sat down and shared their stories, their family and country's history with us. Two complete strangers from America. I learned a great lesson. We are NOT so different. We have different ways of doing things, sure. But the way we VIEW things, FEEL things, and LOVE....it's the same. Remembering the one's passed, it's so important. The history, the lore, traditions...it's the fiber of US...ALL of us. It really doesn't matter where you claim where you are from TODAY, it's where you REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM. That's the LESSON, and I'm sticking to it. What say you? ๐Ÿ˜Ž
