Yes, you read that sign correctly. We’re spending Christmas in Northern Ireland.
Christie’s parents were planning to spend Christmas here with family friends and we have always talked about wanting to visit Ireland together since we were first married, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity. And to top it all off–her parents didn’t know we were coming. We somehow managed to surprise them! Living thousands of miles away from family has many disadvantages, but one advantage is that if we want to surprise someone, it certainly makes a big impact!
