something neat about the invites. They were designed and also handmade by my family. My mom put everything together along with sewing and creating these fabulous invites while I was in Europe. Thank you mom. My brother painted the piece of Echo Lake so that we tied in the location of the wedding. It had my handwriting on the invites along with the heart and the banner. Loved how they turned out!

Europe Ends

I said goodbye to Elyse and I have a night alone. Its not that fun to wonder a city alone and eat dinner alone but getting gelato is still fun alone. Woke up early and headed to the airport and almost cried the whole way. I have such mixed feelings. I want to see my fiance and my family but I don't want to leave. I love it over here and have bonded with my new E-unit. Going back to reality just seems so depressing. I also realized that gelato just isn't as good in the states and especially in Utah as it is over there. Then I realized that I wasn't going to have gelato today, luckily the airline provided that for me. Every day in Italy I had gelato.

Last days in Rome

Everyone left but Elyse and I and I am so glad she is the one I am here with. We both have the same idea of fun. After 6 weeks of craziness we just wanted a lazy day of sleeping. Yup we are in Rome and we just want to sleep and we did. We woke up and got our breakfast and crawled back into bed, I think til like 2 and we decided we better head out to get lunch and dinner, plus we need our gelato for the day. We decided to make it to a cafe across from the Colosseum, you can't really beat that view and the food wasn't bad either.

My favorite gelato place and its just down the street from our bed and breakfast.

Rome day #2

Today was another packed day. Since there were riots going on at the Pantheon yesterday and we didn't get to go in during our tour we made an effort to make it there first today. Then we headed to our Vatican tour which I highly recommend. Your able to pass the huge lines and hear things you might not already know. After we walked around town and found a nice place for our last dinner together as a family since everyone but Elyse and I are leaving to different parts of Europe. Yes I cried at our goodbyes and hugged everyone like 18 times each.


Scary and inside the pantheon, these were everywhere.

I'm getting excited, we are almost at the Vatican.

I love the ceilings if you can't tell. Gorgeous.

Loved how this turned out! haha total accident but its cool.
