Hello everyone, yet again quite alot has went on since my last entry. Yesterday Ben and I figured out our class schedule and then realized that neither of us have class until next Thursday. So we decided that we were going to take a trip to Italy. We started looking for plane tickets and it seemed as if every deal we found had some sort of catch to it. Finally though, we found one. So on Friday morning at 7:10am we are flying out of Glasgow Prestwick and arriving at Pisa, Italy around 10:55 am. We will be close to Florence and Venice so I'm sure we'll have plenty to do there. At some point we also want to try and find a bus that will take us into the hill town that Mike's Mom and Aunt Toni were born in. We were so excited when the arrangements were finalized.

However, the excitement didn't end there. Soon after we were done, we were talking and Ben said he was hungry and he was going to go grab an apple out of the kitchen so I got back on my laptop and was just looking around at things. I had seen him come in from the corner of my eye but I wasn't really paying attention. He was behind me, I could tell but I was "politely" ignoring him, I figured he was just watching over my shoulder haha. Then he says "Turn Around". Well I did, and he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand. I burst into tears. (Of course I eventually said yes through the tears).

Then of course because of the time difference I knew it was going to be hard to get ahold of our families but through some twist of fate and a very nice flatmate of ours, we had the chance to call home and talk to our families! We were both excited!

Our flatmates were soo excited for us and were screaming and jumping up and down. It was quite funny. So they decided that they were taking us out tonight for supper. So here I am, stuffed with ravioli and tons of excitement and so ready for bed.

We miss you all tons! And wish you could be here to celebrate with us, but there will be plenty of time to celebrate when we get back!

XOXO
