Maui-Day one

Tuesday morning, I woke up to a cold, rainy Seattle morning. After a ride to the airport, and a six hour plane ride, Brent and I arrived in Maui where it was a welcome 90 degrees and sunny.

As we were driving to our hotel in our little VW bug, I almost decided not to take any pictures, as pictures could never do this beautiful island justice. Everywhere I looked seemed too beautiful to be real, so I did what I had to do, and pulled out my camera.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
