I know I am a little behind in sharing my photos from Italy. I am in Searcy Arkansas and realized I need to share my photos from Italy so I can then share my photos from here. I got home two weeks today from an amazing time in Italy. A Kiss on the Chic hosts the event each year to Bellagio, Italy. It was truly beyond beautiful. I took about 800 photos and so I've only been able to share just a few. Here are some more-
I am beyond thankful for this experience. This was my view for nine days.
It's a GREAT workout to walk everywhere... up and down the cobblestone streets. There is little shops everywhere. The town is super friendly.
STUNNING beautiful views of Lake Como. Nope we never did run into George Clooney. ha!
It was pure serenity and just so peaceful. I think that is how I would describe where we were.
I really loved meeting all the girls at the event. This is Sherry and her sweet daughter Addie. They are mom/daughter and I just loved my sweet Texas friends. Many stories, laughs and good times were shared.
I loved all the food choices. This is where we had pizza one day. I'm not a pizza person, but ate it almost every single day. ha! I really enjoyed how they prepared it- very thin crust. The photos on the right side of this room were framed photos of GEORGE CLOONEY and his visits to Bellagio.
Laura planned some great day tours and we got to shop and enjoy lunch in Como one day. This is where the Scrapbook Store is located. So worth a visit if you are ever never Como.
The girls from Italy spoiled us with daily gifts and they gave me the BEST gift to take home. It was an assortment of vinegars, sauces and and more from Italy. YUMMY!!!!! We are still enjoying the gift.
I adore these girls. Jeanne Oliver is the mega super talented and adorable mixed media artist. She is kind, humble and just the complete package of awesomeness. I loved meeting her husband Kelly too. We truly enjoyed our time with them. Laura McCollough is the event host and with her two beautiful girls did an OUTSTANDING job. It was VERY organized and I loved this. Laura taught a workshop as well. I loved it!!!!!! Okay- THANK YOU LAURA for inviting me. I had the most amazing experience. I simply feel honored to have been invited. THANK YOU!!!!
I loved the statues in Italy. I took MANY photos of statues...
This is a HUGE large church in Italy. I saw a man doing a confessional in from of a priest. I thought it would be like in the movies. So much history... I could have stayed so much longer.
I would go back again... again and again. I so enjoyed this event.
So now I am headed to teach two more workshops here in Searcy. I am beyond grateful to be here with Denise Pearlman and the girls at The Scrapbook Attic & More. The store is FULL of my products. The event was sold out fast and they have moved the store to make room for everyone here. I LOVE it here. I love all the girls who came long distances to be here. Many traveled from other states. WE are having fun and I love being in the South. I LOVE it!!! I got up at 6am to workout. I am walking and running every morning and I knew it was going be too hot and humid it I waited.
Hope you are doing something fun today!
