Beautiful family trip coming to an end

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.  ~Johann Schiller

It has been a lovely trip.  I hope the kids remember it, I know I will.  From the food, to the nature to the amazing buildings and history it has all been a dream.  I am beyond happy with the trip.  Thank you for being my sweet, sweet family.

Mornings alone

It's no secret, I like my time alone. I think that is why I get up so early, everyone is still sleeping and I can roam around as I please and not answer any questions. I thought to myself the other day when my kids were asking me the 56798,000000th question of the morning that a good rule would be no questions until noon. Ha

Orvieto, Umbria.

The property has plums, cherries and much more. Truly paradise... Hummingbirds and flowers that smell like honeysuckle. The kids are having a ball, so am I. Love, Mama

Roma! Italia!

We finally made it to Rome and slept for 15 hours in our hotel. The next day, we went on a tour of Rome in a hoursedrawn carriage. Very amazing and beautiful! Now we are in Orvieto and loving the amazing country house. More on that soon!
