My sweet Enza!!! You were by far the hardest goodbye in Cortona this morning. Thank you so much for everything you've done for this program, these girls, and for me. I'm so thankful for our brightly colored hair and all of our coffee and Italian lessons. I'll be sure to come back and visit you as soon as I can! Nothing will beat our parking lot dance party this morning, sorry for crying as much as I did. I love you!! ❤
REFLECTIONS: Cortona, I cannot even begin to describe all that you mean to me. My time with has been sweeter than I ever could have asked for or imagined. You have brought me so many dear people and have helped form me into a better and more thoughtful woman. You have helped me grow into myself as a person as well as an artist, and for that I could not be more thankful. You have made me realize the importance of those around me, as well as show me just how much the ones at home mean to me. You've comforted me, calmed me down, helped me become more independent, and truly become a friend to me. You will forever be ingrained in me, my relationship, my friendships, my family, and my heart. I am so lucky to call you a friend, but that's what makes it hurt so much more as I say goodbye. I look forward to the day when I can see you again. Cortona, from the bottom of my heart: Thank You.
One of the things I'll miss most from Italy are the sunsets. Maybe my hair can remind me of them just a little bit when I'm home. As always, a million thanks to @af_alessandro_fratini_ for the beautiful work 💜
This semester in Cortona has challenged me in so many ways, but seeing the fruits of our labor displayed in the Mostra last night was so unbelievably worth it. • • • I am SO thankful for my time here, and it's hard to believe it's almost over. #18days
