Bittersweet Countdowns

Four weeks from today, my sister arrives in Florence, and one month from today, I'll officially move out of my apartment here and begin traveling around the rest of Europe with her! Though I absolutely, positively cannot wait for the adventures Courtney and I will have, especially after her post summarizing our plans, her arriving also marks the end of my time here and I'm trying my best to soak in every minute and not wish my days away.
Exactly two months from today, I'll be back home in Columbus. Once again, though I seriously miss some of the comforts of home, especially my family and friends, I know that after a week or two, I'll miss Florence just as much as I miss Columbus and Chapel Hill now, my two other homes.
Over the next month, I plan on spending several sunsets at Piazzale Michelangelo, eating lots of delicious Italian food and savoring every bite, and simply roaming the streets with no destination in mind.


  1. I`m so jealous! Where else in Europe are you headed?

    1. Lots of places! The first week we'll be in Italy, then we're doing a two week program through a travel agency, going to London, Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Interlaken and Munich. Then my sister and I are going to Vienna, Prague and Amsterdam! Crazy. I'm out of breath just typing that list!

  2. isn't it so strange... i have a little over 2 months left and i'm sort of freaking out and sort of excited

  3. So awesome. Have a wonderful adventure! As a Californian living abroad in Italy, too, I must say that photo sums it all up quite well. Love it!
