Hello Friends,

Today, I am sharing an exciting announcement: I'm going to Italy for my first trip abroad! I have to pinch myself - it doesn't seem real yet. It probably won't until I step on board the plane.a=In addition, I'll be visiting 4 cities in Italy and one in Switzerland.  I can't wait to share the trip with you when I return!

We couldn't find an Italian business for the photo shoot, so we settled for a Spanish one!  The architecture at Mcmenamins has a very European vibe. This new hotel at the Eagles Temple, opened last spring.

The architecture and grounds are so beautiful.  If you find yourself downtown Tacoma, do check it out.  There are 4 floors with different types of lounges on each.. Remodeled rooms are now available for check in, to guests visiting the area.

I will keep this short today, I hope you are enjoying all the things to love about Fall!  I'll be back  soon to share stories, travel tips and scenic views from Italy.

Have you been to Europe? Which country is your favorite?
