Happy September! I’m really going to miss fall in New England (my favorite season home) this year. Every year at Emma Willard, I would come home on the weekends in the fall to go apple picking, watch high school sports games, and admire the foliage. Fall is hands down the best time to be in Vermont. Last October was especially fun when Nicki and I took our senior photos on a traditional Vermont farm.
Although I’ll miss a fall New England, I am looking forward to the cooler weather in Florence over the next few weeks. Today was 90 degrees fahrenheit! People say it really starts to cool down in October.
Today we had some free time after doing a preliminary step for my permit to stay. It feels so surreal being eighteen years old in a foreign country’s famous city. It’s so different being able to walk down a flight of stairs and standing on a city street. I’ll explain more of what I’ve seen in Florence soon! xo ~e.
Word of the day: buono sera (good evening)
