I am convinced that I lived a previous life as an Italian artist. Perhaps I was Michelangelo's humble assistant aiding in his spectacular sculptures. Or the Mona Lisa herself posing for Da Vinci during the day and painting 'til the wee-hours by candlelight. I have some strong connection to Italy that I can't begin to explain and, the saddest part, I have yet to travel to Europe. I know, I know, it is definitely on my bucket list.
