the purple umbrellas

I love this picture. It was taken in the city of Volterra in Tuscany. I requested we go to this city after reading... wait for it... Twilight. It's true, I'm a Twilight fan. The city is a beautiful, walled-medieval city in the heart of Tuscany. Dave and I had quite the adventure getting to and from this city. On a Vespa. In the pouring rain. At least it was beautiful and worth getting drenched.

Thank you to the handsome couple and the woman with the purple umbrellas who made this picture bella.

My favorite pair of shoes for the moment: Keds.
Way more expensive than I remember from when I was little...

{I think that's how life is sometimes,
we grow up and life is becomes more real, and unfortunately more expensive too}.

My hubby and I spent the weekend in California. This picture was taken at Zuma Beach in Malibu. What a gorgeous day.

roman angels

'Roman Angels' happened when my husband and I were spending two days in Rome after our trip to Italy with our friends in March. We had just come from spending time at the Vatican which, though I'm not Catholic, is a beautiful place. I love the spiraled lamp posts in this picture and St. Peter's basilica in the background. This angel is at the end of the 'walk of angles' across from the Castel Sant'Angelo. Apparently we were 'flaneuring' which means 'a person who walks a city in order to experience it,' which is exactly what we were doing, and hope to do again. Oh I love you Rome.
