I wanted to take a chance to tell you today, as I don't think I'll have a chance to update the blog before we leave.
In two days we will fly over the Atlantic Ocean to Venice.
We are about to embark on a 3 year adventure. One that will involve seeing places I've dreamed of my entire life. I've wanted to go to Italy ever since I was a little girl and saw Roman Holiday for the first time.
As I type this I am full of confliced emotions.
I am scared. I am nervous. I am already homesick. I am thrilled. I am worried. I am excited. I am already thinking of the things I will see and wondering if I will simply weep when I see them.
Most of all, I am overjoyed.
We are so lucky that we get to do this. That I get to give these children a gift like this.
I love this country so much and I am so blessed to have been born and raised here.
I am off to learn to cultivate la vita bella. I am ready for more wine and delicious food…and less worry and "give me more" and "latest and greatest".
Ready to go somewhere where there are over 100 ways to say I love you and perhaps life won't be a competition of who is busiest.
I'm ready to spread my wings and fly. And become a better woman for it.
So with that I say…
Ti amo troppo (I love you tooooo much 🙂
