Arrivederci mi amici ! WE leave tomorrow afternoon for Firenze, Italia! Despite the fact that we are all exhausted from the last 24 hours of cleaning and last minute packing we are ecstatic for our journey to begin! (I went nuts with a portable vacuum cleaner that made me feel like a ghost buster). Though, we are all exhausted I doubt we will be able to sleep— TOO excited! My little brother was telling me that me has the hardest time falling asleep on Christmas Eve - personally, the excitement bouncing around my bones is something way beyond the magic of mystery (what lies under the tree).
I have said good bye to most of my friends in person but missed a few unfortunately… Over all- It seems situations and events in my life right now are ideal for moving away for a year.
ttfn (ta-ta for now)
