Days like today….

Days like today….

… remind me how very lucky I am. The weather is beautiful, I live in a gorgeous city with amazing friends and colleagues and I am paid to do what I love.

Perhaps it is looming fieldwork (in Lazio, for all of next week), perhaps it was spending a wonderful weekend at home with friends, or maybe it is knowing my parents are coming to visit in five weeks, shortly followed by Matt….. maybe it is all of those things, but today I am happy, positive, focused and smiling. I just hope this feeling sticks around.

I love it when I feel like this- every day I spot something new or interesting or beautiful that I hadn’t seen before, and so every day becomes a little adventure.
