It feels like it was almost another lifetime ago, but a month ago we were in Venice.  In my mind, I tried to set very low expectations for the city, as I feel like it's a place that's fairly hyped up and iconic.  I feel like I'm almost always disappointed when I have high expectations, so I kept them low, and despite the freezing cold temperatures, Venice was amazing.

Making: plans for the summer.  How can it be?!   I've started penciling in a few things here and there but it just feels crazy to be looking at July and August right now.

Cooking: tonight?  Nothing!  Danny has an interview over dinner so I think I'm scavenging - toast, crackers, cereal - whatever's easy and around the house.

Two months ago today we flew into Madrid with our five suitcases, two backpacks, and a good idea of what we were getting ourselves into. Ha. Turns out we I kind of overpacked (really regretting those seven pairs of shorts that made the cut) – I didn’t have to rewear anything but pants for over six weeks - and as far as what we thought we were coming here to do (learning Spanish and teaching English, by the way) – we’re not doing a lot of it.
