{from our bedroom window}

This time of year always brings dreams of Europe. It was this week 8 years ago that my sister and I set off on our Italian adventure in Florence. We both studied at Lorenzo de Medici, just a quick walk from our little apartment on Via Santa Reparata. I took mainly art courses to finish up the requirements for my Studio Art minor. It was absolutely a dream to be able to take painting, ceramics and photography there in that picturesque setting. 

We traveled all over Europe that semester, linking up with Kristian and his two great friends who were simultaneously backpacking. Some day soon maybe I'll type up some of the stories from my journal and share. 

Today, just nostalgic...
