Anniversary #3

Last Thursday, October 4th, my hubby and I celebrated 3 years of marriage!

I'm just really grateful. O… Read more

We started planning the trip back in January, so needless to say that I was excited when the day finally arrived. And the trip was UH-MAY-ZINGG! The cruise was pretty port intensive - we were only at sea the first day. As I mentioned above, we started in Barcelona, then to Naples, Italy, Rome, Italy, Florence/Pisa, Italy, Cannes… Read more
