Today is a really bittersweet day for my family. My baby brother is moving to Italy tomorrow. We're sending him off properly tonight with a Bon Voyage party at my parents house. My brother is in the seminary studying to become a priest and he'll finish out his studies at the Vatican. So please say an extra prayer for him on his journey, both spiritual and physical. Or maybe we should have him say a prayer for us?
This is absolutely an incredible opportunity for him. Can you imagine! He spent the last two years studying in DC so this is going to be a huge change. Because he is going on a student visa, he will be limited to how many times he can come home over the next several years. He will be so missed! His niece and nephews especially will miss his surprise visits. I guess we'll just have to facetime our way through his adventure!
And for all of you lucky ducks with Nordstrom cards (because that's like magic money, right) your early access to the anniversary sale has started. I am so tempted to sign up just for the magic sales but I know Matthew reads this and will be texting me any minute to say NO. I've already started taking advantage of the online shopping trick where you can pick-up your item an hour later. Genius.
