It’s been year since we first laid eyes on the crystal clear, turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. While we were in Italy and Greece, we longed for the snow-capped mountains of home. Now that we’re home and Spring is beginning to emerge through the frosty landscape, I find myself dreaming of the sand and sunbathing.
