happy birthday, dad!

i am so grateful to have him as my father.

above is a photo from this summer when i met him in rome/vatican city & had the most amazing time. (a time i still need to blog about!)

from being the godfather of radars to his remarkable faith, i’m so happy & blessed to be able to say “that’s my dad.”

i love you, dad!

falling madly in love…

[7.23.2011. Rome, Italy.]

with Italy.

the family i’m au pairing for took me with them on a Mediterranean cruise.
from Croatia to Italy, i’ve been immersed in beautiful history 
& sights for the past few weeks. please forgive me for being gone so long.
but now I am in Italy visiting my pops who happens to be here on business. 
that means the whole day he’s at work i’m exploring Naples & writing.
it’s a wonderful thing.
so much to share. photos, stories, ideas.
i’ve missed you heaps!
but i alas, i have returned! 
(though my love for you all never left.)
