Dreaming of....this time last year

What was I doing this time last year?
...enjoying a quintessential Italian moment with my wonderful husband at a café in the hilltop town of Gubbio in Umbria, Italy....*smile*

...and celebrating the surprise announcement of my son Sean's engagement to the beautiful Meghan Clancy.

...enjoying a fabulous meal at the Locanda del Gallo with the newly engaged couple, my mother (who met us there pre-retreat!) my husband and the fabulous staff, who are, after ten years of traveling to this little slice of heaven, our family too.

...enjoying teaching our workshop and watching our wonderful students hone their watercolor painting technique on a glorious fall day in Umbria

 ...traversing the quaint and lovely Hilltop town of Spello

 ...relaxing in the villa's newly constructed and divine Turkish sauna...mmmmmm

  ...enjoying the villa portico

 ...enjoying the view of my husband enjoying the view from our room

 ...coveting time with Mother on the Arno!!

 ...remembering why Florence captured my heart the first time

...enjoying sharing the local cuisine with our students, now friends

...wanting to "freeze frame" this moment incredible Tuscan meal...our fav Tuscan red...Villa Antinori... and thou...
