The past few weeks have been incredibly busy with such fun events!!
The night after I arrived home from spending quality time with my rose family over in Belarus, I attended the second annual Emerald Gala with my fellow young leaders of the American Ireland fund. I was joined by my boyfriend Davey, my parents, my good friend Jordan, my sister and her husband, as well as many other friends. The fabulous meal was accompanied by fabulous speeches by some of the most influential members of the Dallas chapter of the American Ireland Fund. I am so privileged to be a part of such a fabulous organization. After the dinner it was time to loosen the ties and kick off the shoes for a bit of fun! Unfortunately the 9 hour time difference caught up to me rather early in the night but it was a fabulous time nonetheless.
The following weekend I made the journey down to San Antonio to help represent Fionn Maccumhaill’s women’s Gaelic football team in the first official game of the season! Each and every girl on the team played their heart out and we were rewarded with the first victory of the season. Football season has to be one of my favorite times of the year. Nothing can beat having the excuse to travel with some of your best friends to different parts of the state to take part in some healthy competition. The team has grown so much in the past year and I am anxious to see where this season takes us.
Just 4 short days after San Antonio I hopped on a plane to join my fellow roses and escorts, once again, but this time on my side of the pond, in NewYork City to be exact!
