John and I had the amazing fortune of vacationing for three days on the Amalfi Coast leading up to our friends' June wedding in Rome! We spent one night in Positano, and then met up in Ravello for two nights with friends who were also attending the wedding. The combination of great friends and a stunning location made it one of the most memorable legs of of our three-week long trip.

|Pool at the Palazzo Murat|
|At Palazzo Murat-my first time ever seeing one of these Dr. Seuss-like trees, which I think is a white floss silk?|
|An amazingly refreshing iced Limoncello cocktail. Lemon groves line the steep hillsides of the Amalfi Coast, so lemon is all over every menu. The smell of the lemon groves is intoxicating!|
|Sunset in Positano. No filter! Such great light|

|This was breakfast at our hotel in Ravello. The fresh-squeezed juices, mozzarella, and cappuccino...take me back!!|
|Stunning entrance to the Palazzo Avino|
|Walking around the town of Ravello with John-doesn't he match the scenery perfectly? ;-)|
|The Duomo, in the main village square|
