I reluctantly came back home

I'm back!!!!   Wow, I feel so out of touch with everything right now!   We got back from Europe last week.  We had such an amazing time!   This past week I've just been trying to play catch up.  Plus I caught a cold while I was over there, so I've been kind of out of it.   Hopefully it will be gone in a few days.    I could write a book about everything that we did.... but don't worry, I won't.   Here are a few hi-lights of our amazing trip: 


In front of the London Eye.

Warwick Castle

Shakespeare's home in Stratford Upon Avon

Oxford College

The Anchor Pub. Shakespeare used to drink here!

The Globe Theater


Our first day there, we headed straight to the Eiffel Tower!

The Moulin Rouge! 

At a cafe in Montmartre, my favorite part of Paris.

The Louvre

Last night in Paris. 

It's so awesome at night!


The Colosseum is an amazing sight.

The reason why I gained 3 lbs in 12 days.

The Trevi Fountain

The town of Cortona in Tuscany... sigh.

Everything is beautiful there.

In Montepulciano.  
Anyone recognize this from a certain movie!??
Yup.... it's "Voltera."

The Cantina Contucci, a 1000 year old winery!

Gelato... another reason for the 3 lbs!!

Sigh.... we had such an amazing time.  I can't wait to go back.   I loved all 3 countries for so many different reasons.  I have to say though that I fell in love with Italy.   I can't wait to go back and spend some more time in Tuscany.   It is so beautiful there.   I want to move there, buy me a pink moped and buzz through the streets in a trench coat and heels!    I would also settle for living in London!   They speak english there so it would be easy to manage, and it's just a short (and cheap) plane ride to so many amazing and beautiful places!   Plus, Arbonne has a headquarters in London, so I'd be just fine conducting business from there!   Sounds good to me!!    

Maybe someday.....
