Italy! {Recap and Slideshow}

Well, friends, after promising you a peek at my Italy photos for weeks and weeks, I'm finally following through. Seriously, vacation photos are such a task. Every time I'd open my picasa album and see the 3000 pictures, I'd quickly close the laptop and walk away. Such a daunting endeavor!! But, I got motivated this week when a friend sent me a vimeo clip from her friend's Italy vacation (thanks, Jen!). Looking at those clips was just the push I needed to get my booty in gear! Man, Italy sure is a beautiful place and I've enjoyed revisiting those memories this week!

Did I mention the 3000 photos?? How could I narrow that down to a manageable blog post? Well, the answer is, I couldn't. Instead, I made a slideshow of my favorites. You'll find the video at the end of this post.

As you may have gathered from my instagram photos, I traveled to Italy with my hubby. But, part of our vacation was also spent with my sweet sister-in-law. She and my brother are stationed in Vicenza, Italy. Unfortunately, my brother didn't return from Afghanistan in time...but, he's back in Italy now! He returned about 5 days after we left for home. Barely missing him was a total bummer, but we're all so relieved that he's home safely from Afghanistan! 

If you want to see a whole lot more Italy photos, check out my YouTube slideshow below. You can expect to see copious pictures of: bicycles, doors, windows, silly faces, Rick Steve's books, my hubby carrying all my crap stuff. And, alleyways. Lots of alleyways.

(yep, that pretty much sums it up.)

Happy Friday!

  3. Aww, couldn't watch the video because of the music rights. Too bad! Actually, we might have run into each other in Florence, I was just there last week as well! I can understand how psyched you are about the holiday!

    1. Boo!! Are you in Germany?? YouTube did say that people in Germany wouldn't be able to see the video because of copyright something-or-other. Bummer! I'm not sure how to fix it, either :(.

      And, wouldn't that be crazy if we saw each other in Florence and didn't know it?? I hope you had a great trip too!
