had a thought....

So it occurred to me today that I LOVE living in Italy. Sure, I miss my family and friends and my job but there is so much that Italia has to offer. As I was getting up this morning, I just had a thought that I've really grown to love it here. I love my house (even if I have a barbie kitchen), I love hanging out with my husband, I love italians and their food and I especially love traveling.

Things that I once found annoying I have learned to love. Like the church bells that used to wake me up at 7 am, now they chime me back to sleep after dropping Dustin off at work. Or that you have to pay for shopping bags or ketchup at McDonalds, now I realize how smart it really is. If you have to pay for it, you're sure going to use it!

I think that I am also enjoying it more now that our cats are more adjusted. Who knew it was going to take 4 months for the cats to again sleep through the night or not be scared of every little sound. Momma Mia!

Dustin also made the comment that he has been surprised how well I have done and thought that I would be more homesick. Don't get me wrong...there are lots of those times too, but right now I am happy and enjoying EVERY MINUTE!

Beautiful pictures from around Italia!

Sorry about the wind!
