Italy Day 11 – 14

I'm sorry this has been so long in between posts, but I really wanted to finish up our trip to Italy. I know that the recap isn't the most interesting for everyone, but I thought even if it helps someone who's been to Italy relive the memories for a moment it might be worth it. And I definitely did it also as a way for me to have a journal...

Welcome back! Hope you enjoyed the quick tour of Rome yesterday. We have a tiny bit more of Rome left, then on to the Amalfi Coast! Breathtaking I tell ya! Day 3 - Rome - travel to Amalfi Coast -- Sorento. The next morning, we headed back over to the Pantheon. We wanted to see it in the daytime, and we wanted to go inside. It was really pretty cool....

Jet lag, combined with 25 straight hours of travel on the way home (after only 5 hours sleep the night before), and going straight back to work the next day does not a happy body make! Sorry it's taken me a while to get any updates...

A Vacation for the Soul

I'm a "have a few close friends" kind of girl.I think it's just my personality. My husband is the type of guy who jokes about going into a group of people and yelling out "who wants to be my friend", said with a jovial tone of voice, as in almost mocking anyone who wouldn't want to befriend him. I've somewhat tried this approach, but it ends up in me inviting...
