The curriculum

Link to my Professor's blog explaining our course studies.  Check it out

Getting closer, and closer, and closer...

I am starting to feel the pressure.  I have a lot to do to get ready before leaving.  First thing's first: converting the USD to the Euro.  The current exchange rate is a little sad - 1 Euro to about 1.33 USD.
Now I have no idea where to go from here.  Getting very anxious.

Getting excited (and a little nervous) ... this street will be home for one month

In just two weeks...

Ciao!  This blog is going to be available for my family and friends to peek at any time they feel like sharing in my Italian adventures.  I invite (and hope) everyone will be able to enjoy the secrets and thoughts I share during my time away from the states.
I want to dedicate this trip and blog to my family.  Thank you for supporting me in everything I do.  You never say no, this means the world to me.  Without you I would have no inspiration to reach for the stars.  I wish I could share Italy with is my best attempt.  I love you Mom, Dad, Brittany, and Kali!  You all are my world.
Two weeks from tomorrow I will be saying "Arrivederci New York, Ciao Firenze!"  Until then I am spending the Holidays with family and friends in Michigan.  I cannot believe this is my lucky am I?!

Feel free to comment, email, and enjoy the secrets I share.  Enjoy the holidays, surround yourself with those you love and love you back, smile every day.


PS.  When I am in Italy, I will be blogging in Italian and English - this will be interesting!
