Spring In Italy

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest.”
Ernest Hemingway in A Moveable Feast

Ahhh, spring, possibly the most magical time of year. After the gray of winter in England, it feels so good to shake off that winter chill and watch the flowers bloom and the sun shine.

We met a few sweet, furry friends. (Lilly loves cats, y’all.)

IMG_0795IMG_0839IMG_0730It’s funny how one month can transform your whole outlook. I was seriously down in the dumps over the winter, and I think this spring in Italy has brought me back to life.
