In the Meantime...

I found my camera cables and charger. When I was packing for our trip to Europe. Did I mention we were taking a big family trip to Europe? No? Well, we went and it was a very. good. trip.

In sewing and other news, I made several things for the trip, including three dresses with varying success rates that I will share in future posts. I've also made a few other things, and I'm working on a skirt from the Alabama Stitch Book. I've been busy. Still am, but I feel a little more settled now. I also need to settle in to my office a little more - it's amazing how the stuff I fit into a 1 bedroom apartment still doesn't quite fit into a 3 bedroom house. It feels like when you cram a bunch of clothes into a suitcase and squish everything down to zip it up... and then when you open it, everything kind of explodes out and you wonder how you're going to fit it all back in. I'm at that wondering part here.

Speaking of suitcases, I was quite proud of myself for packing for a 17 day trip in one carry-on suitcase and a backpack. Not my typical packing style. As for the vacation itself:

We visited Rome - this is one of several obelisks we saw on our trip. They're crazy and amazing and I didn't realize there were quite so many in Europe.


Then we hit Venice.


And Verona ("fair Verona, where we lay our scene...")

From there we took the train up to Munich - what a pretty train ride. And what a pretty place. This is the view from Hohenschwangau Castle.


And we ended with Paris.

Good times.


  1. What a fun trip! It looks like you guys had an amazing time--I was looking through your pictures on Facebook!

  2. My mom took about a million pictures - I can't wait to see hers. I'm glad there were other people on the trip taking pictures of all the stuff I missed. :)
