another love letter to italy

milan. milano. italy. italiano.  
i love you.  you're divine.  whenever I hear about you or reminisce about you, my eyes glaze over like a love drunk fool.  

my husband makes fun of me because we have to see other places in Europe ... but all my heart wants is Italy ...  I keep telling him - we could just go down for a few days to Cinque Terre or Portofino or Florence.  I mean, we will literally be four hours to the italian border.  positively crazy-ness not to, right?  But he is wise and tells me I need to be open to the other places we're heading this next year.  I say - OK. fine.  but we are going back to Italy next year, right?!!  Hoping I feel that same way about Greece, Sweden, Scotland, and Croatia.  But perhaps this little heart of mine couldn't handle that much longing.
What is it about gelato, italian tomatoes, and the gorgeous milanese women? 
 straight out of heaven i tell ya.

  1. My husband asked me to marry him at the Boboli Gardens in Florence and we went back for part of our honeymoon. Italy (Florence especially) will always have a special place in my heart.

  14. I can relate. I'm a fool for Italy as well. Been there three different times and it's not nearly enough (sigh). The food, the wine, the culture... perfection!

  18. That is true, Italy is simply Italy and no further explanation needed. BUT I am assuring you, Greece, Sweden and Croatia are also super nice, you will also love it I am sure! I LOVE Sweden, the landscape, the little red wood houses, the people (they all look like they are models, I am serious)!!
    Have a lovely weekend, Kristina
