Quotes Series VIII: Home Is Where The Heart Is

imagesHello all! In light with my pending trip home (this Wednesday!). I thought that I would bring you a two-part special of the quotes series on the topics being home and Ireland. I make two trips home a year and I live for them. As much as I love my life here in Berlin, it is such a comfort to be back home with my family for a while and meet up with old friends for some fun and gallivanting. Anyone one of you who lives abroad will totally understand how I feel. In fact some of you might not even have had to leave your home to understand. Therefore, I bring to you my 10 favorite quotes about being at home.
