[Ice skating: one of my favorite winter activities]
This is my last “friday five” post from the United States until the end of May! I can’t believe in four short days I will be in Italy. As I was overwhelmed with the thought of packing for the next five months, I procrastinated until today to do any packing. I would like to say that it is just simply cruel to allow a girl only one 50-pound suitcase to fit her life in for a week, let alone five months! Let’s be real, that wasn’t going to happen. My shoes alone take up most of one suitcase. Needless to say, I will unfortunately be paying the extra fee to bring along another suitcase.
This week was full of fun surprises, such as the multiple cards and gifts I received in the mail from friends, wishing me good luck in Italy… or should I say “buona fortuna.” A few other highlights of my week include the “bon voyage” party my family threw for me and the cutest Victoria’s Secret luggage tags my sisters and mom bought for my trip.
