I have a confession to make. I really love Italy! Which is probably why this is the third blog entry reminiscing about our summer overseas.
On a warm day in July, Paul and I rode the forty minute express train from Civitavecchia to Rome. Upon reaching the central station, we hopped on a subway and headed to Trevi Square to view the famous Trevi Fountain. We sat at a quaint little cafe next to the fountain, sipping on iced cappuccinos and enjoying an impromptu lunch by the water. The fountain was pretty packed because it was a weekend, so we only stayed for an hour. I can’t even recall the wish I made by the fountain, but legend has it that if you throw a coin into the water, it guarantees your return to Rome. Well, I can’t wait to go back!
After our romantic lunch, we wandered about town in search of the Spanish steps. Paul and I climbed the steps and sat atop the stairs observing the town. Below us, a newly married couple was having their wedding photo session by the steps. The bride looked absolutely stunning! I remember she wore a strapless, cream coloured satin dress with a gorgeous sheer covering draped over her shoulders. It was lovely! Perhaps this was the very moment we were inspired to pursue a career in wedding photography and cinematic video. I mean, how could you not want to capture incredible moments like this for a living?
