when i first made the decision to go to italy – i was obsessed. every day i was researching and looking up things to do…making plans. but it always seemed so far off.
but it’s HERE now! ohmygoodness!!!!
and for a while i didn’t think about it…until mid december when i freaked a little and realized i needed to finalize my bookings. 4 hotels are now booked….Rome, Sorrento, Florence, and Siena. but of course time will be spent along the Amalfi coast..Pompeii!…Pisa…Venice…i will ride in a gondola. i will eat gelato. and cannoli. and legit italian margherita pizza. and we willllll be taking a private cooking class in Florence with an Italian chef! – making a three course meal in which going to the market to buy fresh ingredients and homemade pasta is included (i’m soSOso excited about that!). and of course museum tours. and historical sites.
to stand in the sistine chapel! – i can’t wait.
and it’s….just around the corner!
i start to get nervous…thinking i forgot something in my planning.
oh well….it’s happening!
flight = January 2nd…the best way to start off a new year…i’ll get to check a couple items off my bucket list!
