nostalgia. just what i needed on a rainy monday.

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 รจ per voi.

*See more of english muse's images on her new Polaroids and Holga pics blog, Cloud Society. How cute is that name?

oh so the best complement ever! i would go back to rome in a heartbeat!! you're lovely.

ps: okay, so i don't like the name crush any more. i want a good name that brings good fortunes--what should i call this boy?!

ooh M we have to help her out with this!!!

i suggested "beautiful distraction."

i'm thinking Darcy, to borrow a favorite austen-ism and i KNOW you girls love said character.

-M-... i love that one except it reminds me of that song "beautiful disaster" which often times "beautiful distractions" become...LOL


prospect - although that isn't very romantic.

darcy - i think just using that name speaks for itself

... i will keep thinking

Micaela said...

no i quite like that, "prospect." it's old-fashioned romantic.

you know, i quite thought that about "beautiful distraction" being too similar to "beautiful disaster." again, we are the same.
