Since returning from Ireland, in addition to suffering from jet lag, I’ve spent most of my time readjusting to life in the suburbs of Chicago and reuniting with my family. My main focus, and a lot of emotional energy, has been devoted to getting my youngest ready to begin 3rd grade – and sadly – saying goodbye to my daughter as she embarks on her new life in L.A.. Therefore, Blogging from the Bog has had to take a back seat for a few weeks. However, I have many photos and a few stories to tell and will be back at it very soon!

Until then, I thought I’d share this lovely song by Adele, which has absolutely nothing to do with West Clare or Teach deBúrca, but reminds me of my feelings for my children – something that has been on my mind a lot lately!
