It goes without saying ~ today is a day to be thankful for! It's Thanksgiving, here, in the U.S. Today, I am thankful for many things in my life. In reflecting on this map series, I am most grateful for having spent 6 months in Florence with my husband and three children. It was a once in a lifetime experience - traveling across Europe for one year. We were free from the many extracurricular activities that now pull us in a thousand directions. We were untethered from the overload of material possessions. Life was simple. We lived out of a suitcase each. Our experience was rich, yet our memories richer. I wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings, with gratitude for the past, the present, and what is yet to come.
