The only thing that could possibly save this post...

First, I have to apologize.

This post is probably going to bore you to tears.

But flower boxes were a big part of my trip to Italy.

Yes, I said “flower boxes.” Weird, I know. Like anytime I fell behind the group people looked back, there I was…taking a picture of more window boxes.

I became obsessed with window boxes.

Everywhere you looked people had such pretty flowers in their windows and I took lots and lots (and lots) of pictures of them.

I have no idea why.

I couldn’t stop myself.

I think the Italians take lots of pride in their windows.

And I noticed.

And I’m not a flower and garden kind of gal, but it’s just that these beautiful windows were everywhere.

This one below was my absolute favorite. I want to figure out how to reverse this picture (is that possible?) because I think it’s so cool. It’s like beginning, middle and end in the window box world.

Isn’t that so cool?

O.K., maybe it’s just me. And since I’m sure I have bored you to tears, I can only think of one thing that may or may not interest you.

The fact that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went with us to Italy.

Or at least really, really good look a likes.

It was really Matthew and Lizie Bailey and I SWEAR Matthew is THE funniest person I think I have ever met. And that’s saying something because I think most people are funny.

And there is no way I could possibly describe how funny he is….although I will say that I think he should have his own show on the Comedy Channel. If you know him or ever meet him, ask him to do his imitation of the lady who gives directions on the GPS, or Mrs. Garmin as we liked to call her.

You will laugh until you cry.

And there is no telling what he’s going to say about my post about window boxes.

But whatever he says will be funny.

And him saying something funny could possibly be the only thing that can save a boring post about my window box obsession.
