In my 20 (almost 21) years of life in California, this has been by far on my top ten list of most incredible days ever. I just received, literally seconds ago, a letter saying that I got accepted into a program to study abroad in Florence, Italy...for all of next year!! I am on cloud nine and my mind is just in shock trying to process this fantastico news! I’m a pretty big planner, so I can't wait to start organizing when I will go, what clothes to bring and where to shop, although I don’t think that will be to hard to pick up very quickly. In the back of my mind, my intention for this blog was to document the culture, food, fashion (duh) of Europe and my travels throughout the countries, so I am thankfully to know that I will be given this chance to do just that! I guess now all I have to do is wipe off the dust from my Rosetta Stone and learn Italian in four months!

Here are a few of my favorite pics from when I traveled throughout Italy this past summer with my boyfriend. This trip really got me obsessed with all things Italian and hooked on Gelato, specifically gelato from Vivoli...

I love how the Italians think, they told me, "this is mine and not to share because you WILL eat it all", and I did just that...This is the pizza talked about in the book "Eat, Pray, Love", the author was right when she said it tastes just as good as an orgasm.

I must have a thing for marble tigers and lions.

David's got some competition...

The School of Athens, by Raphael in the Vatican!

My favorite view from our apartment in Positano, Italy.

My second time that day at Vivoli!

Cinque Terre, my favorite place in Italy, so far.

Funny Italian.
