A Roman Holiday





Rome is always a good idea ... 
not just Paris ... So much to see there. Ancient buildings, marble in all colors, columns, stairs, churches, sudden darkness and bright light, gods and godesses fighting and playing in fountains and on rooftops, surrounded but undisturbed by busy modern life, by torists eating ice-cream and pizza, elegant citicens and the soundtrack of italians speeking, seagulls crying in the air, cars, tooting their horns.
 I so enjoy walking the streets of Rome, especially since i've been here a couple of times and know my way round a little now.  Some impressions from a recent trip, including a big family celebration at my brothers, lots and lots of good food, talking to friends and - taking it all in.
Have a wonderful weekend lovelies! I will just rest - and visit all of you!

    Rome is ALWAYS a great idea for fun and family! Everyone is gorgeous, and YOU! You are beautiful my friend! So good to see your lovely photos, and thank you for taking us there! I have yet to see Rome or Florence, but what I have seen of Italy is stunning.

    So good to have you back "home."

    HUGS! And I hope you are having warmth and flowers? Anita

  12. Good morning Martina!! Oh this is such a lovely post, and again, to see your beautiful face is so enchanting. Thank you my dear, for engaging in our France party, even while you were in Rome! And we too, the month of May for us is also extremely gloomy and cold. My flowers are struggling as the night temperatures dip down, and there was even snow in the state of Vermont!!!

    May sunshine and warmth come to us and give us fun in the sun!

    Have a happy day creating FUN! Anita
