Settled in Tuscany

My roomates and I are constantly in awe of the wonderful view we have from our room.  We constantly leave the doors open to allow the warm breeze to circulate through the room.

The view out my window!

This is my bed right next to the window
My two roomates Kate and McKenna and I.
We are so blessed to be here!

I had to put this pic in one more time cause I love it so much.  This is my home for the next few months.

So I will write more later and be more descriptive, but our internet hasn't been working too well here lately and I wanted to get some pics up.  Let me briefly describe what is going on with me right now.  
We have arrived in Cortona!  This is where we will be staying for the entire semester, along with day trips to various parts of Italy every weekend.  Cortona is absolutely beautiful.  It is so small and peaceful here compared to the other cities we have visited.  Classes started today, but they were only about an hour long.  Going over syllabus and stuff like that.  I'm so excited to be here and God is already working in so many different ways.  I will write details later, but for now here are some of the pics of the view from my room, just so you can get a taste of how amazinly beautiful it is here.  We are at the very top of a hill, and you can see everything from our window.  Our room was built for four, but we have three, so it is very large. Especially for me coming from Hume where we fit three girls into a room barely big enough for one!  I absolutely love it here and I am so blessed in so many different ways.  
Thank you Jesus for this amazing opportunity.
