Hello….?? Anyone there? It’s a wonder this blog didn’t just dry up and disappear in my absence. Apologies.
That picture above is Darby, on the left – at the gate in Rome when we left on Monday. And on the right – on a park bench outside our local airport 26 hours later. Exhausted and sleep deprived and waiting for our ride.
Together Darby and I had a wonderful time in Italy. And we had a great birthday weekend with our friends before we left. And now… well, now it’s back to reality.
And back to my precious baby and baby-daddy who I missed soooo much!
In Italy Darby took the “real” photos, all I had was my phone… but regardless, here’s a little recap.
Before we left we spent the weekend here at the beach with our brother Chris. I know. He’s not really our brother. But he might as well be. He and his wife Katie came and we ate and beached and ate and beached and then we ate again. It was delightful. And I simply cannot wait to see them again. And my friend from college, Laurin, she was in town too so we visited with her as well. It was a perfect little weekend full of those I love a whole lot.
Then Darby and I went to Italy. Where we ate and beached and ate and ate and drank wine and ate and drank little coffees. And saw sights that made my heart beat really fast and soaked it all in. And lounged. And drank hot tea. And laughed. And battled a sore throat. And slept in really comfortable beds. And visited. And delighted it in all so very much.
Alright, I’ll post more pictures later… I’m about to fall over from exhaustion. My heart is so full, but my body is so tired. My alarm is set for 4:30am because tomorrow I’m off again to check on a out-of-town project… be back soon!!!
