Earlier this summer, my husband and I took a trip to Italy. We had a wonderful time, and we came back with nearly 2,000 pictures! Don't worry, they won't all make it into Saturday Snapshot posts. :) But I'm sure quite a few Italy pictures will be coming your way over the next few weeks.
We also went to the country of San Marino, which is just 24 square miles and is completely surrounded by Italy. The capital city is up on a hill, which gives you stunning views. The clouds were just rolling in as we got there, which created one of my favorite pictures of the whole trip.
Walking along the path between the towers made me feel like I was in Narnia!
Later in the afternoon, it cleared up and we could see all the way to the Adriatic Sea.
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy.

Lovely photos! I can see why your picture of the capital city is your favorite. It looks like a castle out of a fairytale, complete with a path through a magical forest. I'm looking forward to seeing more photos from your trip to Italy.

Beautiful photos, I especially love the first one - a beautiful sight to capture! It looks truly fairytale-esque.
What beautiful pictures! How awesome to go to Italy for vacation! But, I feel being a school teacher you deserve such great things! Are you getting ready to go back? We start back this coming Thursday... :)

I definitely get most of my reading done in the summer. No evenings spent grading papers! But you're right - I'll be spending a lot more time getting ready for the next school year over the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to that, too!
