Hitting the reset button

Hitting the reset button

When I started this blog a little over a year ago, the aim was to chart my life here in the USA as well as telling the story of how I got here and how myself and Leanne became a couple, eventually married and our lives together. I also wanted to show America through the eyes of an Irish man who emigrated late in life to start all over again, hitting the reset button. 

Well the blog morphed into something else while still sort of holding true to what my aim was at the start. What it morphed into I am not to sure but it seems to be a good thing as I go through life here. But I find myself asking is it time to go back to the blogs roots and just tell the story of my life, hitting the reset button. 

It’s only been a little over 2 years, Feb 2015 to be exact, when we decided we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I have charted that journey in lots of previous posts on the blog so won’t go into all over again. 17 months ago we got married and it has been a wonderful journey of love and discovery as our lives are now joined and not separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Once I moved here in November 2015 it was kine a whole new beginning, leaving home after 47 years, learning how things are done in the USA, talking slower, entertaining at home, making lots of new friends and being happily married in December 2015, just like I hit life’s reset button. 

I don’t get to post on the blog as often as I would like to but I am happy in how my life has turned out, happy to be sharing this journey with Leanne, happy to have met some wonderful new friends, happy to have new family here, happy to be able to keep in touch with back home and happy to be working in a job which may lead to something else further down the road. Maybe it’s time not to hit the reset button but just continue on this road and see where the journey takes me.
