Time to get your choices together for Vee’s Note Card Party.
I’ve been busy traveling and partying and am a wee bit behind. Speaking of traveling last year at this time I was in Milan with Dear on a business trip of his. All my note cards will be from there. I honestly can’t believe that it’s only been a year since I was in Italy. I find it hard to believe I was there at all.
The Duomo in Milan
The inside of the Duomo was architecturally beautiful and magnificent but I’m choosing to show this more humble photo that I took in amidst all the grandeur.
I appreciate the chance I had to visit Milan with Dear. There were many more lovely things we experienced here but I chose to stick with the Duomo for my 4 note cards for March. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the offerings from Vee’s party link up.
We just arrived home yesterday (a 5 hour drive) from our son’s in Eastern Washington. I’m a little behind but hope to get to all the links at Vee’s. I’m also hoping I haven’t offered up these photos before for Vee’s party. Oye and Blessings.
It’s time for ABC Wednesday and our letter this week is D.
Thank you Denise, Roger, Leslie and the rest of the crew for keeping this meme going!
In March of 2013 I had the privilege to travel with my husband on his business trip to Milan, Italy.
The Duomo, Milan Cathedral, is the cathedral church of Milan, Italy. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Cardinal Angelo Scola. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete.
This is one of the Duomo’s doors.
The Duomo is decorated with an amazing number of beautifully sculpted statues and spires. There are more statues on this building than any other in the world, 3159 in total. 2245 Of these are on the exterior together with 96 gargoyles and 135 spires.
I have extensive posts on the Duomo that you can find here (Duomo) here (Within the Duomo) and here (On Top of Old Duomo).
On Wednesday February 5th my daughter and I are going to brave the crowds and head to downtown Seattle to view the Super Bowl Parade. They are predicting quite the crowds to cheer on and congratulate the Seattle Seahawks in their first ever Super Bowl victory. The city of Seattle has been excited for 2 solid weeks and it will be a fun atmosphere to be a part of tomorrow. If I’m a little late getting around to your posts for the letter D you’ll know why…
