Getting Settled

I am soooo in LOVE with this place. IT's absolutely beautiful here. Germany was beautiful but this is just different. The culture and the people. It's just so different and I love it!

First let me talk about the drive here. Ive been on many road trips in my life but this was by far the best. I was dreading the 10 hour drive but I would do it again any day. It was breathtaking. Ten hours of beautiful scenery. Andres and I were never bored. Beautiful tall green trees, rolling hills, and lots of vineyards. I wish I could have taken pictures but I drove until we got out of country. Then there was Austria. We passed a big lake full of gorgeous sail boats and mountain after beautiful mountain! Some even had snow on top! It was so hot! How is that possible?! This lil Texas girl was in awe of the beautiful mountains. Everything is so flat in San Antonio! The boys love love loved driving through the mountains.

We got into Aviano around 8pm and I have to be honest.... I HATED it! It was too country for me and I thought the drive into Aviano was just too gorgeous to end up here. Too many cornfields and it just looked deserted. Our hotel was great though. It was like a cute little apartment. We ate dinner and quickly went to bed. It was a LONG day. Waking up the next day, I was still a little iffy about Aviano. It wasn't the Italy I remembered from when I was 16. We went on base and it made me so sad. Coming from Ramstein AFB where they have the biggest BX in the world to Aviano where the BX is so small it's connected to the commissary. They barely had anything!

Day 3 came and I finally saw Italy and fell in love. The mountains are so beautiful here. UGH! It's just indescribable! It was also the day we found our house!!! I saw it online and it had to be mine. I didn't even want to look at other houses. I just knew this was the one. We were so excited that we showed up to our appointment 2 hours early and thank God we did because another couple showed up right as we were dropping the contract off with the realtor.

The house is ours!!! We are comfortably in our house trying to get all our house stuff where it needs to be. I have so many ideas for this house.
