I had been planning on posting pictures and keeping track of the trip on this blog, but internet access has been a problem for me, so my posting may be sporadic. I'll try to share when I can. Have a great summer and wish us luck!

Its been a long hiatus from blogging... for good reason! About a week and a half ago I graduated from my master's program, moved from my home in Boston, put our belongings in storage, and embarked on a six week tour of Italy and France. We started in Sardinia, where I lived as a child with my family for over a year. Here we spent time with old friends and left my late father's cremains in the sea that he loved. Then we left for Rome to start our touring. And here we are.

Wow. Today is my last day of school. I can't believe how fast it went, and yet I'm so intellectually exhausted, I can't imagine it feeling longer. I'm off to my last class that will include cheese and wine, and then my last University of Chicago duty will be graduation a week from now. I'm so glad I did it, and only sort of glad its done. I can easily say it was my most challenging experience, and I've grown so much intellectually. I can also easily say the a PhD is not in my future (so near future at least) and that real employment will be fantastically appreciated. I'm so happy to have my master's at my age; now lets make a dent in those loans!
