My lovely mother and her girls.  (We tried to duplicate the photo from when she turned 75.)
Again, I took many, many photos.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Favorite Memories:
-Waking up to this view.
-The simplicity of the kitchen in our Italian Villa.
-Being handed lemons through the fence from a local.
-Watching my mom gaze out at the sea.
-Our driver, Stefano.
-Dipping our feet into the sea.
-The Path of the God's hike I took with my sisters.
-Rubbing Italian olive oil mixed with our new favorite essential oil, Thieves, into our feet at night. (To boost our immune system.)
-Drinking Thieves and honey in the morning.
-When the owner of the restaurant drove us home when we asked him if he could call us a taxi.
-The perfectly small market.
-The amazing, breathtaking views.
-Watching my mother eat her coconut gelato and then we all had to get one.  I had a lemon cello.
-Drinking champagne, waiting for the pizza.
-The way the tea lights lit up my mom and sisters faces.
-Filming my bella cowl tutorial and laughing SO hard.  (My sisters voice: "Quiet on the set!  Take 27, Bella Cowl, A Friend to Knit With".)
Favorite Meals:
Dinner at Il Rifugio and dinner at Kasai.

Next up, Florence.
Have a great day!
