Emily and I opened our Etsy shop last September.
For me, it was mostly because I wanted to save money for Italy.
I wanted to do something I loved and save money because of it.
SO happy to say that I bought the tickets.
We are flying roundtrip to Milan, and then we bought Eurail passes
so we can travel to seven different cities.
It feels so good to have reached a personal goal.
I feel like I have such an adventurous spirit,
and I want to travel the world.
I want to travel everywhere!
Thank you to everyone who has supported our Etsy shop, it means the world to me.
If I raise enough money, I would love to send everyone postcards!


  1. Oh have a wonderful time! I love Italy. The people are so fabulous. I went there last September for work...enjoy the food, the fashion and the sites!!! You should get a Rick Steves book on Italy...tells you all about the sites, the food and great places to sleep that aren't scary or too expensive. Have fun and looking forward to your posts on your trip!

  2. That is all so wonderful! I opened my shop partly for the same purpose, too. Italy is beautiful. If you are anywhere near the small hilltop town of Montepulciano in Tuscany, definitely visit. I dream about it. Have a wonderful time!!!

  3. Yay for you! So glad you booked your tickets and met your personal goal! I know you will have such an amazing time! It is so gorgeous!

  4. Thank you all for your kind words. It's so great to have people that are genuinely excited for me. And everyone I have talked to about Italy says it is the place to go. I will most definitely post tons of pictures when I get back. But for now, I still need to save quite a bit of money.

  5. Having spent extensive vacations in Italy, I just know you will love it. Have a great time!
