De-Stress Thursday

Care to join me on a gondola ride?
Ah, Venice!
Pitstop for some gelato?
Bridge of Sighs - if you kiss while passing underneath, your love is secured for all eternity. Or so they say...
What a beautiful day we had in Venice...

I've been to Italy a few times but never made it to Venice. I told my husband that the next time we are over there I want to ride on a gondola. Lucky for him you already gave me one.

I said to Alan (my DH ) yesterday, why doesnt he join the army so that we can move to somewhere nice and beautiful LOL
But then, I though that I already done my army service in Israel, and as much fun as that was I think being an Army wife is alot more difficult.
So we are moving to israel, hopefully, by the time Mylee gets to be 18 We will not need the Army.. I know, I`m a dreamer but she can always move back here and stay safe..
Sorry, Ill be quiet now, and just take a deep breath and look at this fab pics again:-)

So...our Netflix movie arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and it was.."Angels and Demons"!! We had such a good time slapping each other and saying "look! We've been THERE!" Sort of makes me want to watch it again. You're so eat up with Italy...I love it. We didn't get to Venice on our last trip, but as soon as we master the language, we're all over it. Rosetta Stone arrived yet??

loving the yellow house and the one under it if you move there set up a guest room cuz i am moving in. Raising my kids is over rated lol

Amy said...

I bet you can't wait to get back. Do the house move all the time since they are on the water?

Annie said...

awwww Jeannie! I am so happy for you - you're going to live in Italy and will be surrounded by eternal beauty! Please keep those awesome pictures coming :)
Hope you're not stressing out too much!
Hugs!!!

Those are just incredible. I would so love to visit. Can you even stand that you'll be there soon????

hipchic~cynde said...

So you made me feel like I have been to Italy...Now I want to go for real!!
Oh and totally unrelated....the pig is real. His name is Pappa Fred, (I think) we help some friends with piglets and he is the proud pappa weighing in at 500lb (at least that is the estimate) I would post the standing pic but it is well gross!
I would much rather see the Italy photos....I am a little jealous you lucky girl, have a great day.

Intense Guy said...

I don't think I'd swim or drink the water though... :)

I hope you get to kiss Thomas under that bridge while you are there for real!

Now I am totally envious. I cannot wait to see pictures that you took, with you, Bella, and Thomas as the stars!

I have to start saving my pennies for a trip to Paris. It has risen to close to the top of my list.

My Husband and I went to Venice last June and it was in a word...A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! It is an incredible city - how they built it is so cool and you never get tired of it. I think everyone should visit Venice at least once in their life. It is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet!!!!!!

Working Mommy said...

I'm so sad!!! I had a HORRIBLE time in Venice - I think it was because we went in February and the weather was miserable!! So glad you had such a wonderful time though!
