I traveled to Italy for 3 weeks with my husband when our first daughter was 15 months old. When we bought the tickets, I couldn’t believe we were actually going to do it. It was scary and daunting. How quickly my apprehension melted away once we arrived. I will never forget the people we encountered and how warm they were to us– my past anxiety of traveling with a young child in a foreign country now seems so silly. I hope to keep adding images from our future family travels to this gallery as the years go on, but for right now… Italy, you have my whole heart.
