hey friends! i know that some of you noticed i was notably absent from posting on the blog, facebook + twitter over the past week. apologies if you worried that i fell off the face of the earth, but i was actually enjoying an amazing vacation to Italy with my husband! i’d planned to tell you about it before we left, but between packing, last-minute errands, + tying up loose ends, i ran out of time.
the good news is that i’m back! the trip was truly wonderful + the insanely delicious food has really inspired me to try some new types of cooking + baking. i’ll do a recap post of our trip (including lots of food pics) over the next few days, but for now, i just wanted to say hello + tell you that i missed blogging + connecting with you all. italy was amazing, but it’s always nice to be back home after a vacation. i’m so looking forward to catching up + reconnecting with you all!
we have lots of pictures to go through, but i wanted to give you a quick preview. above is the gorgeous ponte vecchio in florence. the first picture below is a view of the colosseum from the ground looking straight up, + second one is me doing a victory leap when we arrived to a breathtaking winery in montepulciano. you know i love my wine. =) i like that you can see the shadow of my husband taking the pic. how fun is that? more pics to come over the next few days!
