La Dolce Vita

Oggi รจ l'iniziodi una nuova vita. Today is the beginning of a new life. Now, my town is Firenze, Italia. I live among people from around the world who have come here to learn a new culture, language, and life. I've been at Villa Aurora for a month now. The weeks have been trying, thrilling, painful, life-altering, happy and all together wonderful. I've already been to places that have added to my experience in full: Cinque Terre, Positano, Pompeii, Napoli, Amalfi, and many others. I have experienced a lot and there is to much to tell now, but I will be writing it all here and hope that those who follow this can read something that makes you want to get up and go be apart of the world as I have. This year I hope to live by something that my dearest Aunt Lynda wrote to me before I left:

This, is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.What you do today is important,
Because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever.
In it's place is something that you left behind...
Let it be something good.

yesterday i realized that no one else in the world
can make me laugh
like rainey davis can.
find friends who make you feel
like no one else can.
make you smile
like you can't stop.
make you feel loved
like no one else can.

"In good times, in bad times I'll be on your side forever more, that's what friends are for."

This little girl, Nola, was my whole heart, mind, and life during the month of August this summer. I was with her all day long for 31 days, learning what in life makes her smile. I found out that almost everything did. I do get Nola cravings on a regular basis. These pictures make my heart melt on cue. Ever loved something that much!?

Out of this world.

Ever had friends so close that when they ask you the weirdest question, it isn't unexpected, it's just who they are? Beau Bozett. One of my "brothers" asked if he could use one of my dresses, one I wore as a bridesmaid, to wear in a movie. There are only a few people in the world I would expect this from, him being at the top of the list. These pictures are of Beau wearing my dress, acting as Taylor Swift for a Ferris Homecoming Con. and I must say, he makes a beautiful girl.

Home for the weekend!

After 3 weeks of being gone, I returned home for the weekend last night! Feels so good to be with my family! The weeks have consisted of never-ending "girl time", homework, cafe food, coking in my room, not a lot of sleep, 409 galore, etc. This is my first time living in a dorm and I like it a lot! Enough freedom to do things as I please. Cassie and I seem to get a long very well! The classes I am taking consist of Anatomy and Physiology, Human Nutrition, College Writing, and Psychology! Loving Psychology. My teacher is hilarious and the class is very interesting. There have been many late nights and too many have turned into hilarious picture taking time. I have pictures as proof that I will post! Fondue last night with the family. Grayson is getting over what we hope wasn't H1N1 but we know that lots of UCA students are out with it. I am SO GLAD to be home but praying to not get sick!

Settled Down.

Today was the first day Cassie (roommate) and I FINALLY felt comfortable in our room! I think it finally felt like we didn't just belong to this school but OUR ROOM belonged to us. We spent about an hour last night putting up little wall stick-ons and laughed our heads off as we were falling of the chairs, dresser, and beds. It "only" took us 10 minutes for each stick on. Saying "a little to the left, oh oh ok now the right side up just a TINY bit, oh oh oh oh ok now you failed." It was a fun time and I think we were also a little on the crazy side because our room decided it would be 90 degrees. My roommate is wonderful. For those of you who know her, Cassie Cantrell is a perfect roommate! I can't wait to see what this year has in store. PICTURES COMING SOON! Cassie promised we could take some tomorrow after some housecleaning. :D

Starting Fresh

I started a blog for friends and family to keep tabs on what I'm up to these next few years! Thought I would try this out!
