Honeymoon Recap: Venice

The last city in the honeymoon recap series, Venice, completely lived up to its reputation as one of the most romantic cities in the world. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but there’s not a car in sight. Quite the change after Rome and Florence!

In Venice, we became regulars at a neighborhood wine bar, ate everything from grilled octopus to zucchini lasagna, and stopped at all the necessary tourist destinations. Of course, on our last night in Venice, we had to take the quintessential gondola ride! So fun.

Honeymoon Recap: Florence

I’m beyond excited to share my Florence recap with you! We completely fell in love with this city and its Tuscan wine. In fact, we just received our first shipment Brunello and I’m not sure I can wait until this weekend to open a bottle.

Visiting La Fornace in Montalcino for some delicious Brunello! Dress: Anthropologie.

Also, the Italian food continued to impress…and I didn’t even capture all of the amazing dishes we tried! One of our favorite lunches is missing from the recap photos. It was just THAT good, you guys. I miss the Italian countryside so much just looking at our photos!

Honeymoon Recap: Rome

Guess who’s back…back again…

The honeymoon (AKA #Huntymoon) was absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to fill you all in! So I’m doing a series of three blog posts for you highlighting our adventures in Rome, Florence, and Venice. First up, Rome!

Rome was the first stop on our honeymoon itinerary and we filled it with sightseeing, eating, and drinking, naturally. So without further ado…let the food photos (peppered with some fabulous photos of the city and my outfits) begin!

As Hunter put it: “They see me Roman, they hatin”

Weekend Getaway Recap: Fredericksburg, TX

My first weekend in Fredericksburg was filled with wine, cheese, beautiful weather, and a healthy dose of 80s power ballads.

My dear friend Boz is getting married this April, and her sister Morgan planned a fabulous getaway for us in Texas wine country. It was my first visit to Fredericksburg, and I’m in love! I’ll definitely be back, as it is truly the perfect setting for a girls trip.

Our wine tasting weekend itinerary included visits to:

First stop: William Chris!

We also had some amazing meals at Fredericksburg Herb Farm and Crossroads Steakhouse and Saloon. After a night of karaoke at Buc’s Bar and Grill, we hit up the herb farm for brunch before embarking on our wine tour (we used Cellar Rat Wine Tours and they were great!) We had dinner at Crossroads post-tour (and post-nap for me.) Crossroads restaurant was excellent, but my favorite part of the evening was definitely the band we found in the bar section of the restaurant.

I ended up taking home a bottle from William Chris, appropriately titled Hunter. Also grabbed a delicious red from Calais. I can’t wait to open them! 

A few favorite pics from the weekend below! #Takemeback!
