Missing Greece!

My grandma is in California {or in The States ~ as they say in Greece} until May.   I love when she visits for many reasons, but one of those reasons is she makes delicious Greek food while she's here!

I love remniscing with her and talking about her low-key daily life in Greece.  I haven't visited Greece since my husband {then fiance} and I went in 2007.  And lately I've just been longing to go back!  

Here's why... 

The Acropolis ~ Athens


Portara at Naxos


Santorini.  Ahh...yes, it's every bit as beautiful as it is in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants...but better!


Windmills at Mykonos

The Peleponnese Islands ~ where my Grandma's village is.  It's authentic and beautiful ~ a non-touristy gem!

If only it weren't so far away!


  1. The ocean looks so beautiful & blue - these are amazing pics! Ashley I've just had a nice time reading all your posts! I especially loved the poem by your student Zoey. My daughter has just started journaling and I just love some of the thoughts that come out of children's minds! You have such a sweet blog. I'll be back to visit, Jane:)

  2. Thank you, Jane! I appreciate your sweet comment so much! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Wow so beautiful! Your lucky you got to see such a place, I'd really love to go there one day also!
