When we were first planning our trip to Italy, we knew we were flying into Milan and would have a week to visit a few places on our own before meeting up with friends in Florence - then make our way down to Positano. It was hard to plan ahead, only because I was maybe 20 weeks pregnant and although I was feeling great at the time, I had no idea how I would feel at 32 weeks pregnant.
Taking it back to our first night in Nice!
We had driven from Milan to Nice and arrived in the late afternoon and I remember we were so excited to get out and explore a little bit before finding a restaurant for dinner.
What a better day than today, when I look outside to see a gloomy Kansas City morning, to start sharing about our 2 week European adventure!
Our trip started and ended in Milan, (in which by the way, we found a flight to direct from Miami for around $400 each, which is pretty phenomenal!) and even though both of us had been there before, it was fun to explore more of it together this time around.
First off, we have just currently just arrived in gorgeous Positano for the wedding week of our best friends and it is every bit of breathtaking as I imagined. We have a week packed full of events and we couldn't be more excited to share this experience with some of our closest friends! So I apologize for this quick little post but there are beautiful sights to be seen!!
Scottsdale, Arizona holds a special place in my heart as it was the place where B and I tied the knot two and a half years ago. Every since the first time I visited this area up in the mountains, I have been in love with the big saguaro cacti that cover the land like trees, the dry heat, sunny skies and expansive sunsets.
Last week was one of those weeks that was jam packed with little room for rest or relaxation. I am definitely a introvert, meaning that a week spent with little downtime to refuel also means a tired, worn out, stressed out me. This past weekend we had a quick 3 day trip to Scottsdale, Arizona planned and it could not have come at a more perfect time than after my crazy week.
First of all... it's FRIDAY!! Hallelujah, I had a rough week getting caught up after enjoying some time away with family in Las Vegas, and with the time difference + the additional hour lost to daylight savings, I have been exhausted as I can't seem to fall asleep at night, and then when my alarm clock goes off in the morning it feels like I am getting up at 3 AM
