Buona notte from two weary travelers! It is 9PM in Venice, and we are in bed. 🙌🏼😂 One of us is already asleep, but one of us has been up for something like 33 hours straight!! Getting here was no joke (worst turbulence ever. Prayed the words “smooth air” for what felt like an hour). But it was worth it. Every time we turn a corner, it looks like a storybook. Gondolas, canals, colorful buildings with ALL THE CHARACTER, pizza . . . It’s pretty dreamy. When we finally got to our Venice hotel, we took showers & an hour nap to feel like humans, then set off to see the sights. And we found pizza. Obvi. 🍕🥂
Today is the DAY!!! We’ll be headed to the airport after lunch for an overnight flight (the airport is about 2 hours away). I finally finished packing, cleaning out the fridge, taking out the trash, and unplugging things. My house has to be CLEAN before I leave . . . Because I am my mother’s daughter. 😂😂👍🏼🛫🇮🇹 ALSO. I learned last night that I can take a mini dry shampoo. 🙌🏼
I have been super silent on the ‘gram for almost 2 weeks! Partly because . . . I don’t have much to say! We’re just over here doing life, day by day. I might also be preparing you for the onslaught of Italy updates that are coming your way because we leave TOMORROW! And I haven’t packed yet. 🛫🇮🇹 But! I’m fine with that because I have a list & a process that I’m talking about on the blog! I do feel qualified to share these tips because a TSA agent once told me, “This is the most organized suitcase I’ve ever seen.” 😂👍🏼👏🏼😝
I just realized that my favorite little stationery shoot assistant is TEN today!! Happy Birthday, Emma! You are the coolest double digit I know!! 😘🎉🎂 #tinyminyon
I started watching Good Girls Revolt on Prime last night and WOW. That show will really get you thinking about how lucky we are as women to be able to USE OUR VOICES. To think that newspapers used to not “allow” female writers, and now, just a few decades later, we can write blogs, newspaper articles, books, Instagram captions . . . we have voices. And platforms. And during a week where writer’s block (and WAY too many ideas for one article) has me pulling my hair out, that’s a pretty cool thing to remember.
Honestly impressed that we have any photos of these two not laughing. My face hurt on the drive home!! They made it easy to get back into the swing of photographing with my “real” camera. ☺️👍🏼 More on the blog! >>link in profile
Laughed until my cheeks hurt with these two tonight. It also took me 45 minutes to pick a sneak peek because I love so many of our shots from tonight!! Expect to see a lot more of Katherine & Chris. ☺️😍😉
