I am starting to feel like a kid at christmas time counting down sleeps until Santa, but in this case my flight to florence.
I’ve been extremely delinquent in blogging these past few weeks, I swear I’ve been really busy. But I must admit, I’ve also been feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed about the trip. I have some amazing friends who have been helping me keep things in perspective and helping me realize that there is no point in getting stressed out.
Tonight I treated myself to a massage and I’m feeling great. Normally I like a zen massage – dark and quiet room and really strong hands, but with Adrienne (yes! we have the same name – very cool), I like to talk. We normally talk the whole time, catching up on each other lives. The whole thing was the perfect distraction from worrying about what I haven’t done to get ready for the trip.
I’m going to continue my relaxing evening by watching Rookie Blue, one of my guilty pleasures, and then heading to bed.
But before I do, here are some pics from the past week.
The first cherry tomatoes of the season – from our backyard. The tomato plant looks like its going to go crazy with tomatoes in a few weeks, so I’m glad that I was able to get a few before I leave for Italy.
Super fun birthday cake. I assure you that it was also super tasty.
My trip books all ready to go.
I’m on a big veggie smoothy kick. My sister introduced me to them when she was here last week. Chris thinks they are disgusting, but I swear, they are delicious and I’m hooked. If I have time I’ll write a proper post about them on the weekend.
