Well, the great 2 week adventure in Italy has come to a close for Corrie, Eric, and me. Corrie is obviously still here in Italy (in Milan) as she will be spending the next year studying in Parma, but Eric is likely checking into his flight right now, because his plane leaves this morning. What a whirlwind couple of weeks it has been, too! From rain in Genova and sunshine in Portofino to beautiful views of the duomo in Florence and a daytrip to Orvieto, we've just packed the days tight. This past weekend was no less busy: a makeshift hike in the mountains over Sarnano, a trip to a local winery, caving in the cliffs over the Adriatic, and a Halloween party. Oh that's right--what day is it today? Happy Halloween everyone!

So here are a couple of snapshots from those blink-and-you'll-miss-them days that we just got through enjoying. Corrie and Eric, we miss you! Corrie, we will see you back here in a week (wow!), and Eric, we'll be back in the states really soon! See you then!
