we saw a lot of incredible places this week and ate a lot of great food. now that it is coming to an end we are all pretty eager to get to florence and move in. on the last day of rome, we toured the Colosseum and the ancient Roman Forum. after departing rome, we made it to caprarola where we toured the Palazzo Farnese and the gardens. we also went to a nearby farm to sample their homemade nutella and jam (they treat nutella like water here). the next day we toured several gardens including the monster gardens of Bomarzo, and the Tarrot Garden by Niki de Saint Saint Phalle. on sunday we saw some etruscan tombs on the coast and went to bolgheri in the afternoon for wine tasting and lunch. on sunday night we stayed in massime dei mari, a coastal vacation destination for italians. on monday we saw a the incredible floats of the Carnivale and the next day went into the mountains to tour the caves of carrara marble. tomorrow we will be off to florence! here are some highlights from the week

it's the last day of summer (sort of) and that means i leave for Italy tomorrow. it still hasn't really hit me that we are leaving and my excitement has been overcome with nerves. however, i know that once i'm on that plane tomorrow, i will be nothing but giddy for what's to come. here are a few of my favorite pictures from this summer (a little out of order). Ciao!

Happy Friday! i am thankful for the rainy weather that has captured Saratoga this past week. it gave me a chance to pack and do laundry without feeling like I was missing out on being outside in the sunshine. this weekend i am looking forward to being with my extended family (coming in from out of town), packing, and spending my last minutes in Saratoga with my love. have a wonderful weekend!
