I’m back.

It always amazes me how easy it is to spend days and weeks planning a vacation and yet the vacation itself is so fleeting.

I spent three-and-a-half weeks in Le Marche, visiting my family and enjoying our little house in the hills. I swam in the ocean, hiked in the mountains, negotiated the Italian autostradas and once again roamed the streets of Rome and marvelled. It was a beautiful vacation.

As always, it was made so by my incredible family and friends. I am truly blessed. Grazie!

To describe my time in Italy, I give you pictures, not words.
