We started the day with a major bummer: Bradley left for home bright and early, which makes me really sad. I miss him already and I'm jealous that he gets to see our pooch and smoosh his little Louie face. There are a ton of dogs in Europe, by the way, and people bring them everywhere with them.

Oh oh! I finally have achieved some color on my skin- TAN (whoa!) except for a spot on my back that apparently I missed (and it's not even in a bad location like I couldn't reach it) and my stomach (that's gonna hurt when I try to go to sleep!).
