As of today, I am 19 days away from flying alone to Italy! The excitement has been kicking in, although I still cannot believe that I am actually going. It probably wont totally sink in until I take my first steps off of that plane. Right now, I am on vacation in Elk Rapids, Michigan, soaking up the sun, waterskiing, and relaxing while occasionally going into TC to work. The countdown has officially begun! I can't wait to make my first post in my favorite country of the world!
