Welcome to my new blog!!
As some of you may know, I am going to Italy for 6 weeks to participate in an archaeological field school! The field school will be in Badia Pozzeveri near Lucca, Italy and we will be digging at a monastery that was founded in the 11th century. This summer, the school will continue to explore the 1855 cholera cemetery and the medieval cemetery and monastery ruins.

When I was deciding whether or not I would apply, my mom found an essay I had written 4 years ago talking about how my dream was to go to a field school in Italy. Was it fate? Maybe but sometimes life just has a crazy way of working out.
Now on to the reason why I started this lovely little blog…. I wanted a way that I could write about my experiences but also share with my friends and family who might be curious as to what I was doing (*ahem* mom). At the same time I didn’t want it just to be about this field school or this summer. I wanted to be able to blog about my garden or what I cook or historical things or future traveling that I may do. Oh and maybe about this place named THE Ohio State University where I happen to spend some time at now and then.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all, not only this summer but hopefully for a long time to come 🙂
Live well, laugh often, love much, discover you.
