Realization



In the midst of stress and worry about our state as jobless, homeless people, I've forgotten to rejoice. You see, had I not been worried about being jobless and homeless, I would have been counting down. Let me do so now. After I go to sleep tonight, there will only be four days before I set foot on Italian soil. That's right, we are leaving for ITALY on Thursday, and will arrive on Friday. I CAN NOT WAIT!!! It really is going to be the trip of a lifetime. Here are the top ten things I am most excited for:


1. A gondola ride with my hubby.
2. GELATO!!!
3. Pasta
4. Michelangelo's Pieta, which I have wanted to see since my freshman year's Humanities 101 class
5. The Sistine Chapel
6. Outdoor markets and the treasures I will buy there
7. A stamp in my passport (I am very distraught that I've had to start over after my name change)
8. Paintings . . . I can't narrow down to just one
9. Taking photos of the coolest things imaginable
10. Ummmm.... BEING in ITALY!!!!

I really am SO unbelievably excited! I am going to try really hard to be completely worry free while there so that I can enjoy the experience. I promise I will post plenty of pictures when we get back.

  1. How cool that you get to go to one of the most amazing countries ever! I'm very excited for you, and only slightly jealous. :-) So, when you are in Rome there is a really good gelato place near the Vatican museums called Old Bridge. Another good one is Blu Ice (spelled just like that) and there are a few throughout the city. Have the best time ever!

  2. So very, very, insanely jealous! Have wonderful time! Can't wait to see all the pictures. If you do start to worry, just remember Scully, sadly stuck in the wilds of Eastern Washington and then remember that you are in Italy! Also, have some gelato for me.

  5. Oh, I didn't know you were going! Amazing. Italian gelato is going to change your life. We had it 5 times in 48 hours. Also, St. Peter's is absolutely incredible and the Pieta was beautiful! I was really excited to see that as well. Now you can get one of those "Ciao Bella" shirts that EVERYONE had in London. Hahaha.

    I'm so excited for you - have an awesome trip!

  7. I am of course jealous... I have been to Italy 4 times now and have never had a ride in a gondola!! 90 euros was just a little too expensive for us!
