Bienvenuda! (That's about the extent of my Italian! Venezia!!! I have scrapped a page or two with pictures from there, when my cousin visited with her family!!!)
it's going to be a big change living in New York, but it's another exciting city, in a different way!
I hope the move goes well! I envy you! I moved from Canada to Australia 13 years ago... though I wouldn't want to move again, I wouldn't mind seeing New York (again) and Venice.
Hope you enjoy yourself here, we'd love for you to stay and have heaps of fun!!! Can't wait to see your pages
