traveling with these three has been molto divertente! 
here they are at the colosseum.
we’ve loved seeing all the beautiful sites around italy together,
 but i think we’ve had our best moments singing
“head shoulders knees & toes” on the train
or hanging out in the hotel room while eleanor dances for us.
these three are pretty great. i’m glad they are my family.

  7. Naomi – You are blessed with such a beautiful family. Your Italy posts are giving me a case of the travel bug, and I'm just itching to go there! My husband is a history graduate student and is studying modern Italian history, so we'll be able to spend some time over there eventually. But eventually just isn't soon enough! xo

Looks like you guys are having so much fun! :) I cannot wait for the day that I finally get to travel to Europe. It's so, so beautiful and historic there! Have a great rest of the time!

    Lovely pictures. Life constantly amazes me – how I find so much joy and happiness in the smallest moments. The unexpected moments in between the "big ones". Thanks for sharing.
