Ha! That's an understatement!  I am now a little over 30 hours from departure!  I think this is the time when the reality of the trip is starting to kick in, although I think it'll hit me the most when I'm actually at the airport.  So yeah, its pretty crazy packing for three months, especially when we'll be experiencing almost every type of weather in Italy while we're there.  I feel like I'm at a pretty good spot in my preparations.  I've packed my small carry-on duffel bag with all essentials I don't want accidentally lost in my check in.  So i've got art supplies, an extra set of clothes, shoes, my sketchbook, reading material, all electronic equipment, some toiletries and, of course, 10 packs of Orbit gum in all flavors!  I've got a load of laundry going at the moment...so tomorrrow I really only have to pack my clothes and I'll be set.  I've got a few last minute errands to run also, but I'm feeling fairly good right now.  I'm pretty tired, but I can't really sleep that well...too much stuff on my mind! 

I had a great time this weekend hanging out with my family for a going away/birthday party and various "last meals"...(I feel like I've been eating non stop since my birthday in July! lol)..I'm so thankful for all my family...gonna miss them a lot.  Soooo hmmm, yeah I guess I'll try and write as often as I can...and hopefully, you'll read as often as you can too! :)  See ya at my first stop...New York!!!  I can't believe I'm leaving tomorrow....

The best and worst part of a trip- waiting for it to start. waiting.... waiting... time creeping along...
