FIVE ON FRIDAY- FROM ROME!

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm writing from the amazing city of Rome today! I flew in yesterday afternoon with my friend, Gemma and we're here for a girls weekend full of food, wine, gelato, and shopping! Rome is one of those cities that truly takes your breath away. From the Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain to the Spanish Steps, this city holds so much history. I can't wait to explore!

But before I do that, let's get to this week's Five on Friday!

1) Rome, of course! We're going to see the Trevi Fountain today. It's so great to be back here after 7 years.

2) New Kitchen Table: We finally got our dining table in and I'm loving it! Now, we can have friends over for dinner :)

3) Lee's Birthday: Yesterday was Lee's 28th birthday, what an old man hehe! I'm so thankful for the 3 birthdays we've been able to spend together. Love that guy so much! We are celebrating next weekend because we're both on separate vacations this weekend. He's in Iceland with his guy friends right now (probably looking at the Northern Lights, so jealous).

4) I stopped by Gap earlier this week and found the cutest sweater. Usually, I don't have much success with the sizing in Gap, but amazingly this sweater fits perfectly! Outfit post on it soon, I'm thinking.

5) Family: My parents and brother are coming to visit me this Summer! By the time they come, it'll have been 8 months since I last saw them. Mom and brother haven't been to Europe before and I can't wait to show them around! Miss their crazy selves all the time.

Hope you all have a great weekend! If anyone has recommendations on places to go in Rome, leave a comment!

Xoxo,
Karen
