 Last summer we spent a little over a week in Italy, three days of which were spent in Rome.  It was hot and crowded but still oh so beautiful.  It was amazing knowing how much history had taken place right under our feet thousands of years ago.  Our days were spent visiting landmarks such as the Sistine Chapel, Colosseum, Pantheon, and St. Peter's.  At night we enjoyed gelato, threw pennies into the Trevi Fountain, and ate Cacio e Pepe {a famous Roman dish of pasta, cheese, and lots of black pepper - recipe here}.  La dolce vita! 


  1. Oh gosh, having serious wanderlust right now! Just beautiful pictures!
