Italy Pictures!

Hey All!  Just popping in to post 'some' pictures from Italy.  I won't go TOO crazy with them.

But...before I post them.......there are a few more hours till I draw the winner for my giveaway.  I've got a whole bunch of paper added to the package and if I make it to Michael's today.....you never know what I might just pick up!
Our first day in Florence:

Can you find me?

Being silly!

Truffles

San Gimignano......just spectacular!

With the first vintage of the Castello di Monsanto vineyard.
1962 - same vintage as my husband :)

The 'majority' of our entire group at the Vineyard

On the Rialto bridge in Florence

The castle where we celebrated Frank's birthday

Our dining table for the evening!

I got locked up in the castle's jail for a bit

In Verona - having a smooch under Juliet's balcony!

A gorgeous sky in Venice

Watch out for low walkways

Now THIS is hot chocolate! Came upon a chocolate festival in Bologna! Yah Baby!
