I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is all around me if I have my eyes open to it.

Sometimes I find it on a busy alley in Italy listening to different languages as they come towards me and then fade away up and down the stairs, just being still with a good book and a cappuccino, knowing what time it is with the ringing of the church bells, the smell of jasmine in the air, and unlimited time and conversations with my family.

While we were in Italy, we had a little over 48 hours in Venice. There are many faces to this ancient city you can visit again and again and keep discovering new beauty.

We were so taken by this ancient city that I thought it would be fun to dedicate a beauty round-up to it.
