Just before our eight-year anniversary, my boyfriend surprised me with a breakup. So I decided to change my life. I left my stressful job in Chicago after 15 years, and went to Italy... alone... for three months... and then I accidentally stayed. Now, more than a year later, I am happily living in Rome and know it was the best decision I've ever made. This book is a photo illustration of my journey, with a few notes on how I made the leap.
