We spent the 4th of July weekend (plus a few extra days) down in Charlottesville, VA visiting my great Mom and Dad. It is a pretty cute city and there are some things to do, although we spent most of the time sitting on their beautiful porch picking tomatoes off the vine and eating them.… Continue reading July 4th in Charlottesville
The second leg of our Italian adventure was visiting the gorgeous island of Sardegna.
