Fly Away to Italy

This morning I was awake for maybe 10 minutes around 6 o'clock and I sat up and looked out the window, strangely compelled to do so. I saw a gorgeous sunrise that I think was some type of meaningful sign. Who knows why I woke up and knew to look out the window? I could have just slept past that beauty. My sister woke me up around 8:30 anyways, but for some reason I had the need to wake up and see that beautiful sunrise.

My dear acquaintance, it's so good to know you
For strength of your hand
That is loving and giving
And a happy new year
With love overflowing
With joy in our hearts
For the blessed new year

That is a nice verse from Regina Spektor's My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year) espescially since it is only the third day of the new year of 2009! One of my sisters, Bridget, is going off to Italy today at 4 pm. I hope you have an amazing trip to Italy and have fun there Bee! Ahem, anyways. I was thinking since this is the second to last day of my winter break- my school starts up again on Monday, I thought that I shoud do something fun with the rest of the break. Perhaps maybe enjoying some music or going out with friends. I think that we should take Ms. Spektor's song to mind as this new year has approached us. We really should have a happy new year- even when the new year becomes an old year, like in October or something, we should always live in the perspective of having ourselves a happy new year.

So, in conclusion I think this blog can be likened to a sort of persuasive letter or something? Anyways, basically we should all enjoy the year whether the year is old or new or in between. Good luck on your Study Abroad in Italy Bridget!

Much love!
