Last Days in Italy

Our last days in Italy went by too quickly.  Between packing, cleaning our apartment and Sean finishing up his out-processing, our time was cut dramatically, but we still made the best of the limited time we had. Here are some of photos I captured from our last days in Italy.

This is a field I stopped at near Lumignano. My goal was to get the cliffs, but I loved the shape of the trees in front of the cliffs too.

Grapes on the vine, near one of my favorite vineyards.

Sean and I like to get pizzas from one of the local grocery stores and then add fresh mozzarella before we bake them. This is my favorite with bresola, rucola and parmesan cheese. Delish!

Laduree macarons all the way from Paris from my friend Sarah.  She got me seven of my favorite flavor (salted caramel) and one rose flavored. I thought they were beautiful and of course had to photograph them.

Delish cupcakes from my good friend Annie.  She  made Sean and I birthday cupcakes, I requested strawberry lemonade and Sean had peach cobbler. Our bonus flavor was orange sherbert. So, so good!

Our neighbor has gorgeous sunflowers in her yard, so before we moved out, I had to snap a pic.

Wine with dinner at our fave Italian restaurant in town.

For dinner we had one of our favorite dishes, faggotini, which is pear pasta with cream sauce and slivers of ham on top.

The fabulous Annie aka Blonde Glambition and I got to tan and hang out one last time this past weekend. I will miss her tons!!

Four cheese gnocchi at the pizzeria across from our hotel.

Leaving the 173rd Airborne Brigade behind and on to a new chapter in our lives.

Have I sent you my set of pictures yet? If I haven't let me know and I'll email them to you :) It's still so weird to think you're not here. I can't wait to come visit you though!!
