Ciao, Bella!

We just got back from a quick trip to Venice for my 30th birthday. I loved every minute of it! I knew Venice would be pretty but I wasn’t prepared for just how lovely it was. I felt very lucky to be there. Thanks also to my friends and family who wished me well on the day and made it a truly special and memorable experience.
