looking at Tina's holga images of Roma brought me back to my dolce vita... i was 19, wide-eyed and with an open heart in beautiful italy.
it was the very first time i had ever traveled alone- the first time i felt grown up.
i took a 5 hour train ride on my own from Tuscany... and when i got to my destination, met up with the italian pilot i had met in my small texas town.
less than a year had changed us, but i was grateful to walk the streets of Rome with Daniele. i won't forget the meal we shared by the Coliseum.
and the best compliment...
he said i fit in, that looking at me in my heels and classic black, i looked as if i belonged to italy.
Italia, Il mio cuore è per voi.
