Thanks so much for all the well-wishes on our vacation and baby-on-the-way! We had such a fab time! Despite being awakened at 3:30 am the first night by a VERY LARGE earthquake, the rest of the trip went so smoothly: our weather was great, the places we stayed were fantastic, and the travel portion (trains, planes) went off without a hitch. Our travel companions, Nate’s sister Sara and her husband Don were loads of fun to travel with. And have I mentioned the gelato yet? Yum.
This post reads more like a travelogue than a sewing blog (sorry peeps) but maybe this small smattering of photos from our trip will inspire you to take a vacation (babymoon?) to one of the most beautiful and amazing places on earth. We started with three days in Rome:
Then a couple of days along the Mediterranean in the villages of the Cinque Terre:
Then to Florence for a few days, where we ended our trip:
: : A special Easter treat on our day in Florence, the Explosion of the Cart, a festival that dates back to the Crusades : :
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed! Will be back soon with Spring Tops and more. And the shop is back up if you need a backpack pattern. Ciao!
