Italy

It’s been 1 year this month since I stepped foot onto foreign soil for the first time. I can’t believe how fast a year fly’s by. Italy was magnificent. I swear I was supposed to live in Rome, it’s my city. The food is delectable and fresh without preservatives we use here. Fresh breads, cheeses, and meats line the streets. The smell of harvested grapes fills the air, it’s amazing. I also used to hate olives until I had a fresh plump green one stuff with mozzarella and garlic. Every time I stick an olive in my mouth, I think of that cool crisp October day when we ate dinner outside beneath the Spanish Steps. You really don’t realize how lucky you are until you get home. Italy, I will be back, just give me some time. Until then, I will look at my pictures and relive those incredible moments.

AND they really do eat pasta every day!
