Italy–Some of my favorite pictures

For those of you that don’t have facebook, I’m going to first post some of my favorite pictures. . . and then I will do some entries where I post more pictures and give some background. . . It just takes a REALLY long time to upload 800 pictures to photobucket!

AMAZING trip, overall.  I don’t think I’d change a single destination, amount of time we spent there, anything.  They are just such different cities with completely different attitudes and cool things to see.

Here is a smattering of pictures. . . more to follow!

  1. these pictures are all so amazing! and i love that you frolicked 🙂

  2. i’ve been waiting for your pictures. these are great. wow, that was a pink house.

  3. I love the pic of the poppies… is it ok if i use part of it to help with my paintings? I couldn’t find poppy fields anywhere on our trip – at least not that big of a concentration of them!

  4. That pink house is so cool. Sometimes I think our American homes should have more “character.” 🙂

  5. […] Some of my favorite pics […]
