Well, I can truthfully say in the pictures that you posted of yourself... you look absolutely radient which obviously translates in to amazing travels and the fact that you were with your family. I can't wait to see more.. I think Cinque Terre would've been my favorite based on the views...thank you for so eloquently putting your memories in to words and pictures for all of us...xo

Strangely I just returned from Italy myself where I spent my honeymoon, and the poem that you posted here echoed my thoughts while travelling exactly! While I was away I kept thinking that the world holds too many wonders to be experienced in a single lifetime and I debated with my husband how long one would need to live to feel that this planet had been properly sampled.


I love Mary Oliver's ability to capture what is essential in a moment and put it on the page for us to find.

The photographs are beautiful. You make me want to go to Italy, Eat Pray Love style. ;D


Amazing post, gorgeous photos, I feel like I can jump in and imagine being on the trip with my family someday (when the kids get older!), I love love love Italy, it is the place of dreams for me. I spent a glorious summer there when I was 19, living in Florence, and have longed to return ever since! Oh Italy. Cant wait for your post #2. xo

Cinque Terre is such a beautiful place. It was one of the places I was lucky enough to go to on my honeymoon. It's so peaceful, and vivid, and breathtaking! So wonderful that you were able to take your kids as well! They must have loved being there. Thanks for sharing the photos, looking forward to more!

I wholeheartedly embrace your adventurous spirit. Bravissimo!!!!


oh, how lovely-the words and images have me smiling. so happy that you had such a wonderful experience with your sweet family! xoxo


Enjoying this post so much, so much I burned the chicken I was browning for the oven. Not serious burn such some surface blackening.

I can see the trip is so much more than a seeing it is an emotion. Fills the spirit so full one could burst.

I thought of you often and even looked at a book of Roman sculpture. I had to use it with a fern photo I had taken just to cheer myself. I know that bird perched just for your camera, as it must of known about your art.

Keep the wonders of it all in your spirit.
