Mindy's first international facedown (aka, more Italy honeymoon photos)

How silly, sneezy, and sleep-deprived is Mindy?  Here’s what she did today:

Loaded a bunch of pics onto our portable hard drive. Drove to Bean and Barrel for some coffee and serious uploading/emailing via their free wi-fi. *Side note-we just moved into our first home together, and are waiting on our cable/internet line to be buried, so we’re internetless at home.* Intended to prepare a blog post of the lovely family we worked with on Sunday morning. Realized that folder wasn’t fully transfered to the portable hard drive.  Oops. 

A bit ago I’d uploaded some Italy pics to post.  So, instead of getting a peek at our Halloween session, you get silly honeymoon photos of us.  We’re moving the last bit of stuff from our apartment tomorrow, but hopefully in between I’ll be able to post those cute little clients that were supposed to be posted today!  Have I mentioned how awesome and understanding our clients are? Thank you for being patient with us during this crazy-exciting time in our lives!

Onward, to the photos!

After our rainy adventure on our first night and full day in Italy, we woke up on our third day to some sunshine, and not a cloud in the sky! We decided to take a ferry across Lake Como to Lenno, and visit Villa Balbianello. However, I kept hearing “Barbieanello,” so I from then on referred to it as “Barbieville.”  Here’s the ferry stop before we headed out.

 On the way to Lenno, we passed Tremezzo, with the Grand Hotel in plain view. That pool had to be freezing, but it still looks so inviting!

 A bit of the view around “Barbieville” (yes, I know that isn’t its real name. snicker snicker)

 Live here? Yes, please.  Around Lake Como, there are amazing views everywhere you turn.

 After our Balbianello visit, we found a spot in Lenno to have lunch, and found these lovely colorful boats along the way.

 And a few interesting shady shadow spots.

 Back in Bellagio, this was our view on the way to dinner, nearing sunset.

 The next day we went out to “the point,” in the middle wishbone spot of the lake. Love this shot I snapped of Jordie. :)

 In one of the many allies in Bellagio, we spotted this very protective doggy.  He was not having us atall. Lots of standing guard by his door, and lots of barking if we got too close.  But, he was all bark, no harm. :)

 We never mailed anything while on our trip, but I did love this mail box. :)

 “Do a GQ pose” yeah? okay…

 Okay, if you do not know about facedowns, you must go here.  There is something unusually funny to me about this website.  I have no idea why!  When I first ready about facedowns, I thought, “How stupid, it’s just photos of people lying face down in random places.”  Then I proceeded to browse the photos, and could not stop laughing at them!  So, here’s my facedown in Bellagio. First one, and it was international. Yippee. :)

 The necessary feet-up shot.

 oh,emgee. The best gelato I’ve ever tasted, that chocolate on the right. The chocolaty/ nutty cone didn’t hurt.  Jordan got strawberry which was yummy), and upon trying mine was immediately jealous.

 YUM.

Okay, we’ll end this post before we have photo-overload syndrome.  We do have a few more Italy pics, to be posted later.  Hopefully not instead of client photos next time. :)
