Leaving for Italy

Well I am sad to say that tonight is my last night in America for about 3 months. My plane leaves at 7:30 in the morning from LAX for Italy tomorrow. So that means I have to wake up at 4:30am and be at LAX at 5am. Luckily I am staying at my brothers apartment and its about 15min from the airport. =) I am nervous to change planes in Germany by myself and I am nervous to not know anyone on the trip. Its a bit scary to study abroad without knowing anyone, especially in a country where you don't speak the language. But I am sure everything will be fine. It was so hard to say goodbye to Nathan. Usually I don't have a problem saying goodbye to family and friends. Boy did I have a hard time saying good bye to the love of my life. But the sooner I leave the sooner I get back and the sooner we will be married. I'm bringing my laptop to Italy so stop back to see some pictures of my trip. I will be back on November 22nd.
See ya then!

The day after my bridal shower I left with Nathans family for Catalina. It was great. It was nice to relax and not be stressed out over the wedding or leaving for Italy. We stayed at Toyon Bay at the Marine Institute. There was plenty to do. We hiked to a chimney that was on top of the hill next to camp. We also did the death hike from Toyon bay into Avalon. There was a rock wall and a maze. I even tried to fish for a little bit. I even caught a fish but had to throw it back. Thankfully the Institute had wet suits for everyone to use or else I never would have gotten in the cold water. They had to push me off the doc to get me in the water the first time. But it was still fun even if I was a little cold.

My sister flew out from Virgina on a free plane ticket to come to the shower. It was great to see her and my new nephew Scott....who is huge!
