Buon Viaggio

New passport in hand, I am ready to venture out of the United States for the first time.
Destination: Caorle, Italy.
Purpose: To learn Italian, eat gelato and meet new friends. Sitting at home with my bags packed I am filled with hope and gratitude. Gratitude for all of the people that are making this trip possible, including the financial aid officer at school that found the money for me to take a 3 week class in Italian. Gratitude for my support network that taught me how to "turn it over," and allow the gifts to come. Hope that this will be only the first adventure, the first of many. This grateful girl is about to go global. Please come along for the ride. Pictures and stories will follow.
