Anticipating the Journey

In eleven days my family and I will be leaving for Italy! Reservations are confirmed everywhere, clothes are sorted out, and sketchbooks and watercolors are ready. I've been taking Italian through the local community college for about 8 years and can communicate on a rudimentary level. We were in Italy 8 years ago and I'm anxious to see if my Italian skills are any better help this time. I'm getting butterflies thinking of new places to see, people to meet. My teenage daughter and I will have a week to ourselves. THAT should be interesting! Seriously, I think it should be a great adventure. Look out Italy, here we come!
