Summer 2013: A snapshot

The summer has zoomed by but here is a quick snapshot of what we were up to while it has been so quiet here at SpotsandStripes!
 A quick visit to Rome, where I have totally lost my heart to and will have to make a return journey some time soon to spend more than the day we had here.  I was just totally blown away by this city - wow is all I can say!

Then we returned to that amazing house we stayed in last year.  We never go back to the same place when we go on holiday but this year was different, the house was so magical that it felt like a home from home and the children settled in straight away.

Talking of magical, we had fairy girls wafting around, cartwheeling and dancing.

 I did a bit of craftiness with some lavender, which became scented bracelets and wall decorations!
We saw some amazing skies appear after downpours with thunder and lightening. 

Unfortunately we had rather too many of these unwelcomed guests to make the holiday truly relaxing . . .!!

Happy days!
