on the pier

I took this picture of my friends while lounging on the pier in Cefalu (cheh-fa-loo) in Sicily, soaking up the sun. Closest to the camera is Hayley {lovingly referred to as Hayls, sitting next her is Jessica with her hubby Scooter looking too-cool-for-school in the back}.

sweet citrus

This was taken at a restaurant that we happened upon while driving along the Amalfi coast. There is only one road along the Amalfi coast and unfortunately they decided to do construction in a tunnel right after this restaurant. We got frustrated and had to turn around, luckily this beautiful, seaside, family-run restaurant was right there. They had gorgeous fresh fruit in bowls lying around by jars and jars of olive oil - so Italian and so bella.

barche rossa

'Barche Rossa' is from my trip to Italy in March. It's off the coast of the small seaside town of Monterossa on the Cinque Terre, or 'five cities' in Italy.

I love the vibrant colors in Italy. The Italians are surrounded by the bright yellows and oranges of their citris fruit and the turquoise blues and greens of the ocean. When you're there you just have to soak it up and live the dulce vita.
