Travel Tuesday: Roman Holiday + a giveaway!

Friends, this week has been hard.  AND IT’S ONLY TUESDAY.  Between the renovation that is quickly confining me to a really small space and requiring me to shower in the back bend position or on my knees (seriously – who puts shower heads SO LOW?!)… and trying to hire people for the upcoming school year (hiring is SO HARD)… and a mind-boggling desire for vacation (I blame my kid who keeps sending me photos from his Southeast Asia adventure)… I can’t help but imagine how I would rather be anywhere but here today.

Since that can’t happen, I’ve teamed up with some AMAZING bloggers for a giveaway… and I’ve filtered out some of my favorite photos from an evening stroll around Rome which will hopefully tide us all over while we grind through the first week of August!  Let’s start with the Roman holiday part and wrap up with the giveaway, shall we?
