The best summer yet!

Summer has officially ended, and I have to say that it was a memorable one! After several summer courses (straight A's OH YEAH!), I was lucky enough to travel to some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.  My family adventured to Italy, France, and England, and I must say, the cultures each had unique features that made for a very interesting experience. I learned a ton, tasted some amazing foods, and was often left in complete awe of the scenery and architecture. I decided to post some of my favorite photos from the trip!

 My sister edited this photo for me (she's a professional)! This was taken at Caesar Augustus hotel on the Isle of Capri, Italy. It had breathtaking views and a garden where they picked all their fruits and vegetables and served them fresh daily. 
 This is Bruschetta. Tomatoes, onions, garlic, and basil on toast...my main staple in Italy. So fresh and unbelievably tasty.
 Addie and I on the Amalfi coast in Sorrento, Italy. The mountain you see across the water is actually a volcano (Mt. Vesuvius).
 This is a view of Amalfi, Italy from the pier. 
The eiffel tower! It was much bigger than I expected for some reason and so beautiful at night with all the sparkling lights. Paris was probably my favorite stop on our trip, and I hope I can return someday and spend more time in the museums! 

This summer was full of unforgettable experiences! Although the rest of the world can be amazing to travel, it always feels SO good to come back home.

It's time to put this summer in the books and move on to new challenges in school and life.  It's finally time for crisp Autumn air and all the best things about my favorite season! I feel so blessed, refreshed, and ready to take on my last semester of graduate school. Life is good.
