Favorite Foto Friday (on Saturday) - Italy

Hello lovely readers,
I'm a day late with my FFF (Favorite Foto Friday) post, but thats ok. I'm fairly certain no one was waiting with baited breath wondering where my post was. :) Anyway, our network was down for a bit and then I was away this weekend and just returned. Since I didn't really get a chance to find favorite photos this week, I decided to just share some of my own that I took when we were in Italy.  Hope you enjoy!

If you want to see any of my other photos, you are welcome to view my albums. Be fore-warned though there are a lot! I had to fit them in 3 folders because each folder only holds 1,000 photos. Is there a group for compulsive photo takers anonymous??

I so badly want to go to the Amalfi Coast! My Dad is Italian, and I have a lot of family in Rome and through Italy. It looks gorgeous. I love the mix of beauty and history and culture.

Pics of Amalfi remind me of the Greek Islands. We went there for our honeymoon because I really wanted to have that mix of culture and beauty and history on our first trip as husband and wife. It looks like Italy will have to be next!
