Thanks, Emily Primeaux! Ireland is lovely and although I’ve worked there, I never lived there. Maybe I should rephrase that: I haven’t lived there yet. It’s always been dear to my heart however because the Irish are so welcoming and the country is stunningly beautiful.
I’m not very familiar with the Lone Star State, just a couple of trips here and there. I’m based in the Evergreen State myself, and very happy about it although our summers have become unbearable of late.
