27 days and counting….

17 Sep

I’m really excited! I have never blogged before (Yes, duh, you can see that!) so bear with me with fonts, SEO, thank you whoever gave me advice, and I will try to add photos of interest.But this is really a journal for me, of our first trip to Europe and Italy has been a dream of mine forever. And hey, you don’t have to read it.

But, if you are, here’s the latest:

Our friends can’t go with us! So we are really going to be be “extra virgin” in Italia! But that’s ok, stuff happens and we love them dearly.
Today is our 7 year anniversary so we’re going to have the honeymoon we never had! How romantic is that? Well, if we can stop eating when we get there!.

Our flights are booked! We fly from here to O’Hare (Chicago), then to Zurich, and finally to Florence. It’s a 17 hour trip including layovers. Not bad! And coming back we fly from Florence, to Frankfurt, to San Francisco (we used to live there & are hoping some family will come visit on that (short) layover, and then home. (Only 19 hours – pretty good for a rookie! We have hotels booked going and coming at our local airport so we will have time to chill.

Did I tell you about our apartment? Oh, la, la! Ooops! I mean Fantastico! I am going to try to post a couple of pictures of it just to make you drool. People tell us they are jealous and we don’t want them to be – we want them to come with us and stay somewhere else close by and we’ll have a great time. Our goal is to meet at least two other families in Italia and stay in touch.

We’re also trying to learn some Italian. It’s pretty funny. We bought Rosetta Stone. Then hubby somehow got bamboozled in buying the Pimsleur approach. Both are awesome, but different and we are confusing ourselves with great abandon. Hopefully we won’t get arrested!

So we have booked most everything and I’m happy to say we’ve been able to do it without credit. So now I’m going to try and post some pictures of our apartment and not embarrass myself too much. You know what? I won’t. You’re a very forgiving audience and are just happy to share this journey with us – 27 days! Whoohoo! (Spell check is killing me!) :  )
