Four Years Ago....


Four years ago we were in Italy.

I felt like a missing piece of me had been found.

I still feel a visceral loss when I let myself remember our time there.

We will go back, that is a promise.

It is when June gets hot and sticky here in Missouri that I remember that we were once in Italy.

  1. Oh heaven! What a gorgeous shot of the two of you as well. MY best friend was just showing me her pics from her Italy trip- I think that is a pilgrimage everyone should make sometime during their lives. Amazing.

  3. I miss Italy almost everyday. It is a physical ache inside me. The good the bad, everything that came with living there, it was worth two years of amazing exploration. I vow to go back as well.
