When I Dream of Michelangelo

Undoubtedly, this time of year always brings memories of Italy flooding into my mind.
--black & white photos from my summer tour of Italy, 1999--

Is there a special place that you dream of revisiting?

These pictures bring back memories!! My sweet little Ashley so far away from home. But you did come home with a love for Italy. I'm glad you went and maybe someday you can take Hudson.

Oh Wow! These are just lovely. I'm currently in Berlin and loving it! But being away, off to see the world always reminds me how special home is! I'd love to ad Edinburgh and New Yorkto my re-visted places list. The new places list is ever growing!

Oh Swoopie, Looks like such a great place. I hope to get our great little family over there one day. I would also like to get back over to Paris and England. There are so many place I would like to take our family as well as many places we have never been.

LOVE YOU and look forward to our many travels together!!!

I'd love to revisit Greece but I worry it won't be the same or as wonderful as it was the first time. I think that's always the worry about going back to a place that holds such great memories.

How nice that you've been that! I'm dying to go someday. Someday when I get over my crippling fear of flying, that is.

Looks like you truly had fun when you went there. I haven't really been around too much at all. The furthest away I have been to was an 8 hour drive. :: shrugs :: I miss summer camp a lot which was 4 hours away. It holds my most cherished childhood memories. I am a little bummed out that so many of the girls that I formed a sisterhood bond with stopped writing to me other than the first friend I made there who has been writing me letters since we were 11 or 12 (and I have seen her here and there but she lives across the country these days).

HAPPY to see that
I hope you'll always have a pleasant day
I can see you holiday in Italy was fun!
Talking about your picture that reminds about flooding in Italy, I hope they all save :)

Have a great day to you!

I dream of Hawaii or the bahamas this time of year but I would so love to dream of Italy- lovely pictures!

Cindy P said...

I want to go to Italy so badly but I can't dream of revisiting it because I've never been. Somewhere I do want to revisit though is Salzburg. I went there on a choir tour in 2006 and it was much too rushed a trip. I want to go and explore and take my time! It was such a beautiful city!

Janette said...

I like how you covered David's secrets.. (Hat tip) Made me laugh out loud! So who did you go with on this magical trip?? I often dream of revisiting this place with Lovey..It would be an adventure..and I would love to makeout with him in public..lol.. seems to be the norm in Italy huh? Or did the kissing couples just follow me around all the time? Uh.. weird.
