Our trip to Italy. What we saw, ate, drank and much more to help you with your upcoming visit. Highly recommend Italy for your next vacation or getaway! It was the scariest 3 kilometers of our life. The bottom of our car scraped along tree roots and gravel and I prayed that we wouldn't meet any cars coming back down the hill because there was no way we'd be able to pass each other - and no way for anyone to pull over, either.

My husband and I recently went on a 5-day vacation in Tuscany. Our itinerary looked something like this: pasta, wine, pasta, wine, wine, wine, pasta, wine. Oh, and gelato.

I was torn up at the thought of leaving my son behind for so long. As a WAHM, I’m with him all day. My life essentially happens between his naps. And what a change when he went down to one nap a day! But I love it! So I was terrified at the thought of leaving him. Not that I didn’t think he’d be in great hands with his grandparents or our family, but because I wasn’t sure how I would be.

And then she arrived and I was shelling out hundred's of dollars a month between formula, diapers and childcare.
