We’re slowly but surely starting to settle back into life at the Little House after our whirlwind European tour. This week we’re catching up on laundry, mowing the lawn (it’s a jungle out there), cleaning house, and washing the puppies (they need it).
Since we’re a little light on the DIY this week, we’ll be sharing photos from our recent trip with you today (I finally got WordPress to cooperate)!

Just like Innsbruck and Venice, we wish we’d had more time to spend in Florence! We hope you enjoyed our photos (especially you, Mom)! We’ll be back tomorrow with our photos from Rome, the last stop on our trip!
