Visiting Italy: Orvieto & Spello
In addition to our seven nights in Rome last summer, Chris and I planned stops in two charming Umbrian towns, Orvieto and Spello. While we just stayed overnight in each town, one day was enough to fall in love with Orvieto and Spello.Continue reading “Visiting Italy: Orvieto & Spello”
Desert Road Trip: West Texas, Arizona, & New Mexico
Chris and I (and Honey!) took a little desert road trip last Thanksgiving, and this year I’m reminiscing hard. We are planning to stay in town for the holidays this year, but it sure is fun to revisit past trips.

Seriously. Just say that you will and then do it. Amazingly, I still always overpack even with the limited space.
