I cannot explain how good it feels to be back in Italy.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever feel at home in another country.
I'm loving the cold winter, the never-ending supply of wine, the cappuccinos, the amazing fresh produce, the mountains right outside my front door, and the ability to travel to amazing places so conveniently.
The husband has two weeks off of work so we are re-organizing our house, trying to unpack the nine boxes of stuff from the States that arrived yesterday, and of course traveling.
Our PCS (permanent change of station, basically when you move on to a new base) date is June 2014, and suddenly it feels like that date is creeping closer and closer. There are still SO many places we are dying to see, and it feels like time keeps moving faster and faster.
That's why we have decided to dedicate 2013 to traveling.
I want to see as much as I possibly can this year!
