manamistella #flashback of one of my favorite photos from our favorite adventure together: a 3 month, 12,000 mile motorcycle trip that took us through 33 states on 2 lane highways.

There is nothing quite like dispersed camping, going 4 days without a shower, and riding through all types of weather to test the foundation of a relationship. We took this trip pre-smart phones, and picked our course each morning over an atlas (which is now one of our most prized possessions). The thing is, you can never be lost if you don't mind where the road takes you!

manamistella Italy gave me everything, because it brought me to you ️. If the time stamp on my old camera can be trusted, it was exactly eight years ago today that I was sharing my last sunset by the Mediterranean with the man who I now call my husband. It's hard to believe it's been so long since we've been back, but it didn't take much thought to know exactly where we wanted to go for our honeymoon. We'll be seeing you soon ️!! #PPHoneymoon @passionpassport @paypal 2w

manamistella The hardest thing I did yesterday was take down this portrait of me, drawn on our first day open over two years ago. In the whirlwind of last week, I feel like I didn't get a chance to properly say "Thank you." Thank you for the outpouring of love, for the thoughtful calls/letters/visits, for sharing my sadness for what's past and excitement for what's to come. My heart is full and grateful 2mon

manamistella Dig in! Our last lunch with Aunt & Uncle consisted of smoked beef, head cheese, ham, blood sausage, two types of cheese, two types of pâté, and a pain d'epi. They're going to have to roll me onto this plane 2mon
