  5. I do hope you get to do some international travel soon. It's fun to think about it. I could live forever in Italy.

    Anne of Green Gables is my favorite book. I bet the audiobook is lovely.

  7. Fun travel choices. I've just been viewing the pictures a gal sent back from Geneva where she visited a friend. So pretty.
    Love the puzzle art on the sidewalk and yay for Anne of Green Gables in October. Man of God looks interesting.

    Have a good week! :)
