A Few Pictures From Lago di Como


We had about two weeks to explore Italy.  Our very first stop in this beautiful country, was Lake Como.  We only had about 24 hours here and eight of those were sleeping, so, we didn't get to experience all that Lake Como had to offer.  I truly believe that in order to fully appreciate a place, you have to spend at least two or three days there.  However, there is no denying how beautiful this place is the second you lay eyes on it.  My Husband had to do some work in the afternoon, so I ended up taking a boat ride on the lake by myself into town, where I walked around, took pictures, ate gelato, and kept an eye out for George.  (George Clooney that is).  Somehow, I was able to find my way back to our hotel, and then we ended the night dining right on the lake, and woke up to that gorgeous view (last picture).

When I studied abroad last summer I planned a trip for 12 of us to lake como all by myself! It was fun. And rumor had it that mr. Clooney sold his villa.....womp.

Your pictures are really gorgeous. I'm headed to Italy later this week and will be spending 48 hours in Como. Beyond excited!! I see you were also in Lucerne. Did you guys spend any time at Lake Lugano in your travels? I've heard amazing things and am considering trying to get there too. Thought maybe you could give some insight. . .

Ok, I'm getting ready for our vacation and I'm stumped on what to pack. If I could just have a few tips on where you got some of your clothes from this vacation, that would be great. You always look so great. Comfortable, yet refined. As a mommy of 3 I need that balance when vacationing!
