Remember back when I wrote about politely excusing myself from my family? Well, it’s that time again. I have decided to step away from the daily runs to the market, the VBS & kids in my kitchen at midnight. You know it’s time for a vacation when you go to get out of the car at Target & you have to stop & think, did I get out of my pajamas? Welcome to Lisa’s Life!
So I'm off to Amalfi.
Look, Marco has been anxiously awaiting my arrival!
First stop... yes indeedy...that was quite the drive!
Love this one, can I bring the door home?
Yes, Marco, the red is romantic, but I'll reserve it when the MR. is along.
This is actually more my style.
Every day I will have fresh flowers.
My morning breakfast will be served on my veranda.
Have I shown you the view from my room? The brochure specifically states...Given the natural composition of the Amalfi Coast, made from a series of terraces, it is highly recommended that children
are accompanied by an adult. stay home!
Before I head to the pool, I must be “pool ready”, so I have booked an appointment here.
It’s called the “wellness center”. That's a good name.
I'm doing well, cleansing tea & slowly emerging from a dreamy state here.
Forget about it....
I am heading right down there...See, those 3 chaise lounges, umbrellas, & unlimited supply of white fluffy towels are reserved just for me & whoever wants to know all about my blog!
A quick stop at the boutique for a little shopping, before I head back to my suite. These would make a nice addition to my Faience collection.
And by the way, I’m still curious about those cliffs... are they growing grapes over there?
Oh perfect! I can become a wine connoisseur & return home with a nice selection for the MR!
But first, I must return to the terrace for the breathtaking views before I dress for dinner.
I brought along this little number modeled & designed by my good friend Holly Dunlap.
My table is waiting....
The famed Restaurant Santa Caterina & it’s Mediterranean cuisine has spread far beyond national boundaries. A wine list featuring all of the most prestigious labels and an elegant dining room add further to the appeal.
Restaurant Al Mare where fresh grilled fish and fragrant pizzas cooked in the traditional wood burning oven are the specialties of an informal meal, surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the Amalfi Coast.
Either one will do. So for now I can enjoy watching the coastline come alive with twinkling lights, and plan to do it all again tomorrow & the next day & the next...
Oh, before you go, I have my eye on this beauty to take home as my little souvenir! I might try to bring an extra for The Skirted Roundtable. I believe they decided that busts are “in”.
