The last week and a half has been a little nutty. Micah spent all of last week (including our anniversary) boiling in Birmingham, Alabama. I spent the week handling Izzy alone, helping Dadtractor with his condo project and juggling work while camped out at my parents house. We live very close to Lake Washington where the annual Seafair festivities take place and our neighborhood gets nuts this time of year. They close off most of the streets around us and traffic is a nightmare. Normally the noise doesn’t bother me but I knew that it would get Izzy all worked up. Did I mention the Blue Angels come? Yep, nightmare.
I’m behind on a lot of stuff and just wish a had a day or two just catch up. Or, I’d take a day or two not doing anything here… or in Italy. While we get ourselves together, I thought I’d distract all of you with some pictures of Venice from our June trip.
What I love about Venice is that you feel like you are in a movie or walking through a postcard all the time. Even when it’s hot and hazy, it’s still really lovely.
There seem to be a million canals and no matter where they are or what condition they are in, they look perfect in every picture.
I also really loved all the architectural details. The door knobs, the mail slots, the address numbers – all have so much character.
I also really loved the narrow maze of alleys. You start walking in them and have no idea where you will pop up.
We really enjoyed wandering around Venice. We had no real itinerary (apart from the necklace) and spent a lot of time wandering. You wouldn’t have to twist our arms to get us to go again.
