i'm always amazed at what comes to life in our yard each spring. even plants that we neglect, plants that are transplanted, walked all over by the dogs, burnt to a crisp in late summer, frozen to the core in the middle of winter, somehow manage to make their way. this makes me appreciate their beauty all the more.
let's see...what's up with me...i have italy on the brain. i've been studying italian non-stop. i broke down and purchased a little cd to go with my textbook, which, i happily listen to (and speak to) whenever i'm driving in my car. this great little gadget has also been fun. i'm so excited to dive into the culture and the experience with this language and am counting down the days for august to arrive.
