hi from rome

Rome has been amazing and I kind of don't want to leave!  I wish we were here just a few more days so we could take some day trips outside of the city.  I think a week or two in Italy would have been ideal...oh well, what can you do?

I don't have the time or the energy to upload my "real" camera pics but here are a few good ones from my iPhone.

The Colosseum - amazing and a few blocks from our hotel

The food! Cream filled croissants, nutella filled doughnuts {yep}, beef carpaccio, and olives that are like butter.  DEAD.

Ancient ruins every place you look...so cool.

St. Peter's in Vatican City - so gorgeous.

Today we are off to Ireland.  The 60 degree temps there will be a nice change to the sweltering 97 degrees that is happening today in Rome.  Also, we will be seeing lots of family and friends and sheep {my favorite thing}, so that will be fun :).

I hope you all are enjoying your August so far!

All these photos are from my Instagram account.  Follow along with @AcuteDesigns for more from Rome and photos of the next stop in Ireland.
