I can’t believe I’ve been in Italy over TWO YEARS already! Wow, how time flies. In two short weeks, Bo, Carter and I will start the next stage in our Navy life. Our final destination will take us to the beautiful and always 60 degrees Fahrenheit San Diego Cal-E-forn-E-a!
We will be spending our winter and spring months on the East Coast first, landing us in Newport RI and Dahlgren VA, where Bo will be doing some training. I’m looking forward to some New England clam chowder and fresh lobster! Then SUSHI SUSHI SUSHI on the West Coast! Oh, heaven!
I have been thinking about all the things I will miss about living here:
-the cute little Monte D lady who makes the best fresh pasta, ever!
-traveling around Europe
-mozzarella di bufala
-pizza with eggplant
-pizza with corn, cream and prosciutto
-pizza with rucola, prosciutto, sliced parmesan and tomatoes
-not having to stop at STOP signs
-views of the Mediterranean sea from my backyard
-New Year’s Eve fireworks
-the friends I’ve made here (although most of them are all leaving for new places too)
-walking around Monte D on the weekends with Bo going to all the little local shops
-discovering interesting fruits I’ve never seen before
-cheap, yet amazing, wine
-working with the fantastic people at the American Red Cross
and most of all:
-Art class with Davide!
