It’s the little things…

…that make a vacation.  My favorite memories in Italy were not of the things we saw or places we visited, but the time that I spent with my favorite people.

  • I’m thankful for dear friends who watched Isla so that Nick and I could go on a much needed date alone in Florence.

  • I’m thankful for Texas country music and husband who knows how to Two-Step.  Our last night in Florence we danced and danced on the solarium at our hotel and we did moves that I haven’t done since college!  Isla even got in the action. I’ll never forget how amazing it was, listening to Corry Morrow sing our song while we watched the sunset over Tuscany.

  • I’m thankful for long car rides, where we talked with Nick and Jessy and John for hours about anything and everything… all while driving through incredibly beautiful countryside.

  • I’m thankful for laundry mats in Venice.  Doing laundry late together as a family might have been the most fun I had the entire trip.  We were even serenaded by a Violinist!  I have such a fun family. Smile

  • I’m thankful for these two.  My silly husband and adorable daughter.

Even though we got off to a rocky start, what an amazing time we had.  We are exceedingly, abundantly blessed.
