home, happy & exhausted

Well, what a vacation! Italy is bellisima, of course! And being there for my birthday was beyond wonderful. We got in last night, and today I'm going through pictures and an overflowing inbox, doing endless loads of laundry, and generally catching up on life since for the past 10 days I've pretty much been living a fantasy and not thinking about any responsibilities at all! Thanks to all my awesome guest bloggers last week for filling in with such great ideas and inspiration while I was gone. I'll get back to more regular posting tomorrow, but for now, here are some highlights to tide you over.
