Happy Holiday Around the Corner

Tulip in Parc Floral on a beautiful spring day.
Unfortunately, spring was only in France for 1 week.
Now it is back to winter.
I am so excited about going to Italy, I can hardly stand it. I know I will probably get mugged or something equally horrible will happen, because let's face it, that is just how my luck runs. BUT, right now I am super happy. I feel like a little kid getting ready to go stay at Grandma's for the weekend. There are so many things I want to see and do and eat and drink while I am there. Whew, I get breathless just thinking about everything. I am also really nervous because I just know I will forget to do something before I leave and then something horrible will ensue.

I am going to Milan, Pisa, Bologna, Florence, Rome and Naples. By myself. I am going to be so cultured and fat when I get back to France. Then, I am off to London and possibly Scotland or Ireland (haven't decided yet). Heather and Amanda get here on the 7th of May and then it is London again, Amsterdam, Paris. Look at me; I am a world traveller. Who would have ever thought? A country girl from Arkansas globe trotting. Scary, huh?

Nice pictures.

Going to Italy sounds pretty fab. I'm waiting to hear about all the great food you have there.

And maybe you'll be able to find spring there.

You are going to have a fabulous time! Just remember, if you ever get mugged, the elbow is the hardest and sharpest part on the human body. I can't wait to hear all the stories!

You need to shut up, now. I'm not sure how much more I can take before I begin crying with jealousy.
