The time is coming closer and closer until I depart for my adventure, and it is finally starting to set in that in less than two weeks I will be on my way to my new home of Florence, Italy. I think it first hit me when all of my friends were arriving back at school at the beginning of the week. I saw Instagram photos and tweets expressing how happy everyone was to be back, all while I was sitting home with my cats. Everyday I am realizing how much I am going to miss all of my friends and family while I am abroad and how lucky am I to have to opportunity and support for my big adventure! Make sure to follow my adventure here on my blog, on Instagram, and Twitter!
