take me back.

take me back to italy.
take me back to waking up with nothing to do but explore.
take me back to cups and cones of gelato. sometimes twice a day.
take me back hotel hoping and train traveling.
take me back to not a worry in the world.
take me back to plates of pasta and pizza. {yumminess that's out of this world}
take me back to colored houses, romantic canals and cobblestone streets.
take me back to history and art; plenty of it, mind you.
simply just take me back.
{i guess, i should say us- because i wouldn't dare, nor want to, go back without lovebird.} 

what inspired this random post?
well, you see- 
it seems that everyone around me either has travel fever,
is out exploring somewhere exotic
or has been blogging about their dream vacation.
i'm convinced it must be this time of year.
this busy time of year, 
where we feel so tied down to all of our responsibilities.
this time of year, when holidays are at the tips of our fingers, 
therefore we're surely anticipating those blessed days off.
or perhaps, it's the change of cold weather that suddenly 
leaves us begging to feel the hot sun that just seemed to have left us. 
regardless, we are all allowed to dream of a vacation, right?
if you could go anywhere tomorrow, 
where would you pick to go?

meanwhile, since we are all "stuck" here in "normal" life-
let's dwell on our memories from vacations in the past
and dream of those that are hopefully in our near futures.
maybe then, our dreams of traveling will magical drift into reality.
my fingers are crossed. 


  1. I love looking at pics from my European holiday – it usually gives me a boost. Such lovely, care-free times! Paris is my favourite place. I always wish I was there. x

  2. I would love to go to the beach! any caribbean beach!
    you both look very happy in that pic and I love your "venetian" striped top, cute!

  3. gorgeous photo! sounds like an amazing time. i love traveling!

  4. sweet pic! and yes i agree... let us all cling to those traveling memories while we are here in normal life.

  5. ahhhh, still so jealous.
    you guys are so cute.
    i can't wait for the one time that my husband and i get to go on a vacation, it doesn't even have to be like exotic or cool, just a vacation, a real one where i get to sit on the beach for even just like 3 days. i know thats not real exciting haha.
    but i guess i would go somewhere cool like spain, bc my hubby speaks spanish.


  6. NYC. Paris. London. The Meditteranean. those are my picks... *sigh* :) xo

    ps adorable photo! your vacay looks dreamy.

  7. If I could go anywhere, I'd go to a little island off the coast of Maine where lights go down in the evening and everyone walks from here to there. Lovely.

    I love your blog.


  8. We almost spur-of-the-moment bought a groupon for an all-inclusive trip to Paris and Nice in March; but since I'm in the education field that's smack-dab in the middle of the semester and I can't leave :( I'm so bummed though!

  9. I would love to go to anywhere in Europe, since I've never traveled overseas. As a Southerner, I have a soft spot in my heart for Charleston, South Carolina and would love to go back there!

  10. Europe, hands down. I want to see France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Switzerland... I wanna see it ALL!

  11. Travel fever is spreading like wildfire. I have it pretty bad...but ihave it pretty bad about once a month-- lol

  12. Awe you two are ADORBS! :) Your blog is absolutely fabulous-just became a member/follower of your blog. I hope you'll follow me back and we can keep in touch. Happy Blogging!!!

  13. Huge fan of Italy! My husband and I got engaged in Rome and I sure miss everything you mentioned.. the pizza was a great memory and I could go back there any day!
    I appreciate your comment on my blog and when I went to respond, it said you were a no reply blogger... but I came to check ya out and following your cute blog! Hugs!

  14. Oh Italy, I never seem to grow tired of it. I went there for a bachelorette party of sorts a few months ago and already wish I could return.

  15. My husband and I are planning on living in Italy for a while sometime in the next couple of years. He's a history grad student and he's studying modern Italian history. I am so thrilled to know that it's in our future. :)
