Volcano, Volcano, Volcano...

I have been stranded in Milan + Pesaro since this incredible Icelandic eruption has decided to bless us with it's presence. My experience is something I cannot explain yet, but it has been full of chaos, stress, laughs, only 1 panic attack, new friendships, great food, wine, and design and finally a clear mind! I have so much information from the Salon Mobili in Milan that I would like to share with everyone and will do that soon! My free time has been spent trying to get a flight home and have not once sat down to write, but it feels great to do so. I just got a new flight yesterday and will be returning home on Sunday {huge sigh of relief}. I am technically stranded here by myself, but have become such great friends with people that I have not once felt alone and I will miss everyone when I go. I came across these photos of the volcano in Iceland taken Rebekka Gudlesfsdottir and am amazed by their beauty! These photos have given me the inspiration to see this experience through a new light.

"These horses are lucky for now. Farmers caught in the worst of the cloud have been forced to slaughter their animals (at least cows, not sure about horses) due to their land being devastated by the ash."

Thank you Rebekka Gudlesfsdottir for venturing out and sharing these photos!


  1. WoW! Those photos are beautiful! I'm sorry to hear that you can't get home yet what a fabulous place to be stranded!

  2. i finally made it home and have mixed feelings about everything! Glad to be home, sad to be gone! It's good to be back to my routine, but if I was there another week I would have maybe wanted to stay for good! I ended up having a great trip and met many fabulous people! But I am home and safe and peaceful!
