This week was all about Italy prep between finalizing travel details, ordering new clothes, and a new lens for my camera. I cannot wait to shoot the beaches in Capri and Positano. I will work hard to get out The Print Shop orders and catch up before I leave town. We have been looking forward to this trip for a while now. After a busy first half of the year, it will be nice to unplug and soak up Italy.
The blog turns seven next month, and I have been reflecting greatly on how far I have come over the last year. More on that a little later.

Diptyque Paris turns 60! I love the Linden/Tilleul candle for summer scents, which reminds me of my time in Nice with my family. It’s an intoxicating smell. We have the trees in Chicago and I recently noticed them on my walks with Henri.
