Today marks 6 months since I have left the US of A soil.
I can't believe I've been living in Italy for 6 months already. In a sense time truly has flown by.
Taking a break to think about these past 6 months, I've come to realize as hard as it is to live 9,000 miles away from my family and friends; I still think it was the best decision for myself and for my future.
Seven months ago, I had no job, no medical benefits, and not a whole lot of confidence in myself.
Fast Forward, eight months :
I have two jobs, I'm writing my very own first cookbook, and also writing a children's book about The Adventures of Harley in Italy ~ (my 4 month old mini poodle pup that I rescued) medical benefits, and so much more confidence in myself than I ever have had.
It's never easy making changes in life.
In MY case, change was good yet certainly not easy.
Bittersweet because not a day goes by that I don't miss my family. Pretty normal, I think.
Looking forward to the day, when I will return for a visit to my loving family and friends.
Until than, looking at pictures will have to do :
My Mother and I
My Brother Randy and I
Another photo of Randy and I when we were younger
My cousin Domenico and I
My beautiful Mother, Grandpa and myself
Mom and I
My Grandfather, Pretty Betty and I
When I go back to California taking pictures with ALL of the family is going to be first on the list.
I've left out so many people ( picture wise).
This blog entry is dedicated to my family and friends.
Miss you all and love you bunches :)
