July Family Vacation

Cinque Terra Family Vacation italy Photo by Debbie Markham

Our family vacation took us to Italy this summer!  It was amazing, we went from north to south, visiting: Venice, Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terra, four different hill-top towns in Umbria and Tuscany, and Rome.  The simple lifestyle was refreshing – there weren’t as many types of milk or vegetables, but rather one size of pizza country-wide, 2 types of milk – whole or 1%, mainly five vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, onions, tomato and red pepper) and very little beer.  Wine, arugula, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, olives abounded and fresh white crusty bread.  I could live here…

Debbie Markham Photography+ Dallidet House Wedding +San Luis Obispo+Garden Wedding+Fall Season

My good friends got married last weekend and it was one of the most beautiful, elegant, fun, upbeat and totally charming weddings I’ve been to!!!  What a memorable Dallidet House wedding! Here’s some of my favorite pics…

Dallidet House Information:

“The Dallidet lands abutted a large tract known as the Old Mission Vineyard. Native plants such as toyon, sycamores, coast live oak, elderberry, willow and walnut flourished along the margins of creeks and springs and marshes that rarely ran dry…Today you can stroll the gardens today and see evidence of Victorian and early 20th-century interest in “new species” from exotic locations as well as those previously established in the area.”
