On the final evening of our Switzerland & Italy trip we slowly walked around the Duomo in Florence and took in the grandeur. We all admired it and Mazie and I “breathed it all in”. It’s a goofy thing we like to do to really take in the scene with a big, deep breath. It started by breathing in the waterfalls in Iceland.

As we were standing there it hit me that this is the last family vacation we’ll take before she goes off to college.

Many new journeys are ahead. But I’d be fine keeping things just as they are too.
