countryside, we had only one place in mind, Castello Di Vicarello. On the way up, we were greeted by a herd of

Italian sheep (I had been praying to see some all day) and a sweet Italian lady. We immediately jumped out of our

car and ran up to the fence line where she greeted us with a wave and huge smile. While we couldn’t translate her

thick Italian accent, her love and generosity was so evident as she graciously allowed us to trot through the pasture

insisting we take more photos of the herd. It was more perfect than we could have dreamed.

Upon arriving at the villa, our eyes were greeted by a romantic stone castle surrounded by grape vines and olive

groves that, today, is both a family home and a small boutique hotel. As we ventured on, our hearts got lost

exploring the luscious gardens filled with ivy-covered walls, arches and pathways. I can still smell those vibrant

rose blooms that smelled of sweet yellow sunshine as we entered through the gate. This place was magical. Every

turn we took, another beautiful nook was discovered. Take me back!

I still cannot get over the beautiful tones of the Utah deserts and the incredible mountainous architechture that frames each scene. We had such an incredible time slowing down to exploring, noticing, relaxing and inhaling the crisp, fresh, Utah air. It feels so good to just STOP, open our eyes and notice the tiniest of details- like the vibrant color on the flower of the tiny weed that somehow managed to blossom from the barren, hard ground. Oh what a mighty God we serve! xo

AS SEEN ON ONCE WED 

Words from Kelly Perry:: “Waiting. This word typically brings negative feelings to our mind, but peel back those initial layers and beneath you find that waiting brings forth loveliness in its purest form.

In ancient Hebrew culture when a bride and groom were engaged, there was a time of separation, of waiting. Rather than planning every detail of their wedding day together, the groom needed to leave his bride at her home and go to his father’s house to build a room for he and his bride to live in when they married. She never knew exactly when her groom would return, but she trusted him and waited. This trust brought peace and rest to her mind. In that time she prepared herself for his arrival, fully confident he would return at just the right time.

I began imagining this bride patiently preparing for her groom against the ethereal backdrop of the mountains –
running through the hillsides in her flowy, heirloom gown to see if that was him coming around the bend. She
gracefully gathers freshly cut flowers, the perfume of each one making her sweeter. Every night she keeps her lamp burning — anticipating his return. And while she waits her love and longing for him grows stronger producing a rich charm and elegance in her eye, one that only comes through waiting.”

These images tell that sacred story.
