Arrivederci Collins Hollow!

Today we’re leaving for Italeeeeeee!!!

I’m so excited I have butterflies in my stomach. We were getting the directions to our villa today and they were exactly the type of hodge podge Tuscan sweetness I was hoping for.

….over the bridge, past the wooden hut, past the wooden fence, you will see Santa Maria (the pink house) with a pool just beyond….etc

Beau has agreed to be spontaneous and spend the night in any town we feel like spending the evening in. (I’m thinking of Portofino :)

But there is one place Beau has refused to go:

Me: “Hey. Can we go to Volterra?”
Beau: “What’s in Volterra?”
Me: “Volturi.”
Beau: “No. We are not turning this into a Twilight tour.”

That’s ok. It was filmed in Montepulciano anyway. And that town looks way prettier! I’m hoping to go there and hit a few hilltop towns on the way!

Harry is wearing a sweet little vintage airplane shirt for his first plane ride. It was the first thing we ever bought for Finn. It’s so fun to think I how crazy it would have made us to take a baby to Europe back then. But now we’re “seasoned” parents and the thought of having Hare with us makes me really happy!
