Alone Again in Italy

As of this morning, we are back to the husband and wife traveling duo. Julie left us a couple of days ago and Shannon headed back today. It was so great having them here, we had a ton of fun and many stories to rehash for years to come. In the beginning, I felt like I was talking their ears off because it was someone new to talk to and I think Brett enjoyed the break from my jibber jabber. It also helped to revive our trip. I think we were both starting to feel homesick so it was nice to be with people from “home.” But even though we had a great time, it’s actually nice to be alone together again. I guess that speaks pretty well for our marriage, that after spending nearly every waking hour together for the past six weeks, we still look forward to our alone time.

This weekend our friend Nick, who is traveling for work in Milan, is meeting up with us. Nick’s a big-time foodie, not to mention an awesome cook, so we hope to spend the weekend eating yummy food and attending a white truffle festival. And then the following weekend we meet up with my brother and sister-in-law in Rome and then we head home! It’s weird to think we just have two weeks left, it seems both short and long at the same time. But we are definitely looking forward to those puppy kisses.
