For example, I wouldn't shut up while Ted was trying to propose, because I had no idea what was going on, so he was struggling to even get a word in edgewise let along get down on one knee. He also became violently ill immediately following the big question (which is a story for another post), and we ended up having to cut our trip to Venice, and Italy, short.
All this to say that while we had planned a day trip by boat to the island of Murano, it never happened. (I am also the only person who has vacationed in Rome and never seen the Vatican, which we were saving for the last days of the trip.) But to get back to the point. As a result, perhaps, of this aborted visit, I became obsessed with Murano glass, specifically with Murano glass chandeliers.
There is one that I have on the brain right now, that I saw on the Interwebs and cannot for the life of me find again (don't you fucking HATE when that happens?); it was was so lovely and looked like it was made out of strips of pink candy ribbons. Just beautiful.
In the meantime, I gaze at these and dream:
