Gathering Graces 6/19 and 6/20 2017

*Monday and Tuesday all kind of ran together, so I am going to talk about them together.  My day was spent with my traveling companions Kellee Crall Mills, one of my oldest and best friends, and Tina Marshall, a new friend who is a friend of Kellee’s.
*Our days of travel were pretty uneventful.  We left at 6 a.m. for the Spokane Airport, and flew from Spokane to Seattle.  Our flight was a bit delayed, but no worries.  We arrived in Seattle until our flight left at around 7 p.m.  We hung out in the Food Court and people watched, and the boarded our plane.
*I didn’t realize the sun would never go down on our flight.  That was pretty cool, except they dim the lights on the plane at night, so you can’t open the window to see what you are flying over.  We arrived safe and sound in Frankfurt Airport.  Frankfurt was experiencing a rather hot day, and the airport was hot and humid.  But we made it through and waited for another delayed flight to Florence.  The Frankfurt Airport is HUGE!!
*We boarded our airplane and had a short flight to Florence. After we got our bags, we came through the doors, and there was our friend April M Lee waiting for us with open arms.  It seemed surreal!!
*Eric Lee loaded up all our luggage in their car and we went to a local grocery store to shop for items.  It was fun shopping in an Italian store.

*Then we arrived at Villa Magnolia, the beautiful hope April and Eric have been living in and restoring since they arrived here last October.  It is so beautiful.  You may have been following the restoration on Facebook.  But until you see it in person, you have no idea how beautiful it is.
*And here Kellee and I are, with our best friend April, and it was as if no time had passed.  We are in Italy with our friend at her new home, and about to experience the adventure of a lifetime.
