Good morning lovelies! Greeting from Venice! How are you all? I hope you had a good weekend? Ours was spent in beautiful Bellagio at Lake Como. As I said on Instagram, I had such little idea of what to expect of Lake Como before arriving, but how I’ve felt ever since arriving with my sweet reminded me of this quote: “Trade your expectations for appreciation and your world changes in an instant”.
It’s so true, isn’t it? I often have quite a lot of expectations when I travel but to have none at all has really allowed Lake Como to surprise me and blow me away completely. Honestly, I can’t imagine a more beautiful or romantic place exists anywhere. It has been a total dream!
It’s raining in Venice this morning, which couldn’t be more perfect really, and as I sit here over breakfast typing this post, with a steaming cup of coffee at my right and a fresh, flaky croissant to my left, I’m reminded of the purpose of this little post. Today Ty and I board a cruise ship here in Venice, where we will spend the next two weeks blissfully sailing the Mediterranean.
We will have no wifi or internet connect for the duration of our cruise (which I’m equal parts excited and apprehensive about – does anyone else have an unhealthy addiction to their phones and social media??) and so aside from a fabulous giveaway I’m hosting here on the blog next Monday (you won’t want to miss it!), I’m going to say ciao and take a little break from social media and the blog over the next two weeks.
I’ve been struggling with poor wifi signals since arriving in Italy, and just as it was really starting to get to me, I took a long hard look at myself and realised I’m in Italy. Who even cares. So with that said, I will see you all again in November! NOVEMBER?! HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN? It’s so ridic I’m literally yelling. I hope you all have a fabulous rest of October!
Thanks so much for reading and following our adventures! See you all soon! XO
