Yesterday when we walked through the door home from our Virginia trip, one of the first things we did was check the mail. This is sort of a tradition of ours after a trip, we sit down together and go through everything that came in while we’re gone. And I have to say, I kind of love it. I LOVE getting happy mail! We’re in this pretty incredible season of our life where we are getting to make SO many amazing new friends through conferences, workshops, weddings, or just online. And so at least a couple times a week, we get a super sweet thank you card or a “thinking of you” gift just because! It’s the BEST! And it just makes me want to be more & more of that kind of person for other people too. To be the person who sprinkles a little awesome in someone else’s life because I thought to…and because I actually made the effort to make that happen!
Well one of the things we had waiting on us, was this sweet gift that came wrapped in the most adorable camera wrapping paper from one of our all time favorite #justinandmarybrides EVER, Tiffany of Tiffany & Charlie fame! :) We shot the wedding for these guys five years ago, and I am SO excited to say that this July we will be shooting their vow renewal & anniversary shoot……in Italy!!!! AHHHH!!!
So when I opened up the paper (super carefully so I could keep it. obviously!) and saw this book, “Food, Wine, Rome,” I nearly died from excitement! It’s getting SO close, which means we need to get to planning! It also made me feel like Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love, so maybe I’ll bring jeans an extra size big so I can eat all the pasta I want! :)
So this is where YOU guys come in! While we’re there, the general plan is to hit up Rome, Venice and the Amalfi Coast. I’ve been to Rome & Venice before, but only super briefly. And we’ve never been to the Amalfi. So we are looking for recommendations like crazy. We want to know where to eat, where to stay, how to travel, side trips, things to see in the cities, the order we should go down the coast, any of it! And if you’ve never been, tell us where you would WANT to go if you were headed to any of these cities! Let us know in the comments below! We can’t WAIT to see what you have to say!
And Tiffany & Charlie…you guys seriously ROCK our world! I am soooo excited to experience this with you!
