This was a weekend filled with #sunrises, #sunsets, and #starryskies. I took the opportunity to unplug my brain from everything going on and just #bepresent. I'm never going to solve all the world's problems and acknowledging that doesn't mean that I won't try... but taking a step back to look up is something that need to do more often... “And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure. And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, 'Yes, the stars always make me laugh!' And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you" - #AntoinedeSaintExupery, #TheLittlePrince

After last week, I'm starting my Saturday with a #sunrise and the #royalwedding.  Ready to refresh and restart.

Lessons learned this week:  The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  #TGIF, my friends.  T.G.I.F.

Let's just call this photo the, "I want to be somewhere like this where there are no people and plenty of good #gelato because this week pretty much sucked" photo.  #italy2018 #tuscany #pienza

In an attempt to clear my mind for today, I decided to edit more pictures from the #GreatItalianRoadTrip. This was the day that we drove from #Siena to #Assisi, and we must have pulled over at least 15 times (and detoured to #Pienza for the BEST.gelato.ever) because the views were surreal. Even looking back at these, it feels like the whole place is a dream. If you're thinking about going to #Tuscany, skip the day trips, rent a car, and slow down. It's worth the trip.

One of my favorite mornings on our #Italy2018 was wandering the streets of #Montepulciano.  It had rained and it seemed like we had the streets to ourselves.  Despite the chill, I love shooting cities on overcast days.  I feel like everything just "pops" and this morning was no exception.  Gahhh, I can't wait to start recapping our #GreatItalianRoadTrip soon.

I finished editing my #Assisi pictures and I'm moving on to our road trip through #Tuscany.  I need to write about any and all of the above, but I'm suffering through some pretty significant writer's block right now.  Send me all your good vibes, because not only do I want to be writing about #Italy2018, I also NEED to be writing for work / Wednesday.  Sharing all this and more #ontheblog today! 😂🤣

I decided about 10 minutes before sunset that I wanted to leave the amazing spas of @nunrealis to photograph the #BasilicaofStFrancis.  Down the hill we went to find this small turnoff I had seen on the way up.  Luckily, we found it just in time to watch the lights come on, the sun go down, and enjoy the sweet silence in the olive trees (before it started to rain). Did I make the right decision?  Absolutely.  When else will you have the opportunity experience this view?? #Italy2018

Finally sat down to edit some #Italy2018 photos (instead of doing #work). Started with #Assisi because @anestingnomad was right - it is incredible.  Realized that I'm missing a bunch of photos from the later part of the day... which makes me wonder if I forgot to transfer them from the memory card.  They might also be on the external hard drive I travel with and just didn't get copied to my home server.  Either way, I'm too lazy to check.  After this week, we'll be lucky if I leave the bed... if I'm being totally honest.  #RealTalk on a #Saturday, my friends. 💙💙

It would seem apropos that the most beautiful sunset of #Italy2018 happened when we were atop the #PalazzoVecchio in #Florence! I definitely snapped a few shots but I would have preferred to be somewhere a little less restricted. 😉

Oh hey there, #instagram! It’s been awhile... and truthfully, I’ve barely touched by #Italy2018 pictures! I’m trying to decide what to blog first...#CinqueTerre and #bluehour is kind of my love language, but truthfully?! I’ve got so much to share! I just need to find time to do it!!

Perk of #AdvisoryBoard duties is sneaking over to #CMC to see these boys. They are EXACTLY what I needed today. #CollegeAccess isn’t glamorous but these boys are going places and I can’t wait to see where they end up!!
