Back from Our Italian Vacation

We just returned from a two week vacation to Italy. Neither Ian or myself had ever been to Italy before so this was a real treat. We stayed for two weeks. We spent the first 5 days in Rome. Then we rented a car and drove to Tuscany where we spent 5 more days. After that we drove to an area just north of Venice, close to the Dolomites for 4 nights and then flew home out of Venice.

The boys loved their Italian experience also. They're both history lovers so there was much to interest them, especially in Rome.

The food was so tasty, the vino perfect and the weather beautifully hot. I think we had rain once, during the night.

We saw so much during our travels and took tons of photos. I've downloaded them but it's going to take me a while to sort through them! You'll be seeing a lot of them over the next few weeks.

Also, Jacaranda Designs is open once again. I closed the shop while I was away and it was lovely not feeling that commitment to staying connected.

Hope you're having a lovely summer!


  1. I was lucky enough to also have visited Italy - I absolutely fell in love with the country. Venice was amazing and the Italian countryside was gorgeous. So glad you had a good time.

  2. Oh, so that's where you've been...I am so envious!But so happy for you! Can't wait to see more pictures, I used to go every year up until after 9/11 and having young boys ~ but am more than ready for a return visit! At least through your pictures :)
    Welcome back,
