T Minus 14 Days

Even though I have read all the packets and gotten my visa and (mostly) packed my bags, it still feels sort of surreal. Am I really spending the next four months in a beautiful, historical, amazing country, on a continent I can’t wait to explore? Will I really be in a place where I don’t know anyone and can hardly speak the language? Will I really be away from Mr. B for four whole months? I wonder when it will all sink in…
I went to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles with my family today (above). There was a lot of Italian art but we didn’t really get to see any of it. Sadly, there just wasn’t enough time and we battled Los Angeles rush hour traffic all the way back as it was…We had dinner at my grandparents with the whole Silverman side of the family (all nine of us). I worry about my grandpa (above) a lot and I wonder if his health will effect my experience in Italy. I fear that it will and I fear facing those feelings alone. This picture doesn’t really capture him because he was extremely tired when I took it and I didn’t even give him a warning, but I want it here anyway.
