Pictures from a summer spent in Italy, where all my senses came to life after too much time spent in London! Waking up to the sound of monastery bells ringing in the surrounding hills was so good for the soul. We soon got into a routine of waking up early for coffee so as to not to miss the beautiful morning light.  Italy is such a beautiful place; the ripe and colorful food, the sound of the crickets in the midday sun, the warmth of the Italian people...I loved every minute of it there, just hanging out together and enjoying a slower pace of life.
