the honeymooners: in rome

At this time last year, my new husband and I embarked on a honeymoon adventure. My dad had gone to Italy in January of 2007, and when he got back, he told us that we had to, HAD TO go to Italy for our honeymoon - he thought that between my art background and Pete's Italian roots {his dad was born in Italy} that it was a perfect fit. So we gave it a go...and we are so glad that we did! It was a magical honeymoon that started in Rome, moved north to Florence, and then down to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. All the while, we filled our bellies with amazing pasta, pizza, and of course gelato {boy, did our digestive systems revolt!}, and absorbed so much history, art, and beautiful things that it is hard to put into words. So instead, I will share just some of the 1200+ photos that we took on our adventure. Here are some highlights from the first leg of our trip, in 'Roma'...Florence will soon follow...enjoy!
