Final Week I really cannot believe that I only have one more full day here in Seville. Mannah and I woke up this morning and talked about how quickly these last three weeks have gone by. I'll definitely save my last post to get into the emotional, cheesy reminiscing, but for now, I'll give a... Continue Reading →
Let’s Focus on the Weekend…
A Short Week #2 While Monday's can definitely drag, the promise of a short week and long weekend made this past one not so bad.

The Countdown Continues…
Officially one week away from my departure! The weather back here in Naperville has reached the 80's, and the sun has finally decided to shine.
