ABC Wednesday

My blog friend Annie told me about a meme called ABC Wednesday, in which she and Kathy (another of our blog friends) participate. So I thought I would join them...insofar as I can manage it around the demands of school and student ministry. I gather that the meme is not restricted to photos, but nonetheless, I will start off with a photo collection!

A is for...Arches. Especially old stone archways as found in the streets of towns in Italy. A friend of mine says that I was surely Italian in a previous life, because I am so drawn to this's like the ancestral home of my heart and soul. Here are a few photos I took on my most recent visit, my fourth and hopefully not last, although having recently given up my public service career to follow Jesus into ministry means I am a poor student for the next four years, and have no money for oversea trips (unless, of course, someone wants to "hire" me as a travel planner and tour guide...hint to my mom! lol)

The photos were taken in Cetona, Tuscany; Monteleone, Umbria (I think); Ferrara; Assisi; and a final one of the living room of the house we rented during our two weeks in Cetona. Enjoy!!

I invite you now to settle into a comfy chair and surf on over to Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday site, where you will find links to many more fabulous and creative posts!

These are great captures, a nice start for ABC. Come see mine when you get a chance.

I love your collection of Italian arches, Anne! And I spy a cool looking street shrine too in photo number six.

I hope that we both will be able to return to Italy sooner rather than later. :)

About the ABC-Wed graphic, I copied it from their site and then uploaded it to my blog just like a photo. Hope that helps!

Hi Anne, what an awesome photo collection of Arches. They are all very cool. I enjoyed traveling vicariously with you and reading your blog while you were in Italy with your mom.

I'm so glad that you decided to join in. I think it is quite fun.

Hope you enjoyed your winter break in school and wishing you the best in 2012.
