Take Me Away - March Recap

Here in the northeast, March went out like a lion this year!  We ended the month with flooding rains and cold temperatures.  But now it's April - hooray!  With the flip of the calendar, the weather has made a change in New Jersey as well!  I am sure many of you are planning spring and summer vacations.  I know I cannot wait to hit the beach this summer!

Martha's Vineyard

As I mentioned recently, my friends and I are heading to Martha's Vineyard in May.  I couldn't be more excited!  Once again, if you have any Martha's Vineyard tips, please feel free to share!

In the meantime, here is a recap of the travel posts you linked up for March...

Carole from - From My Carolina Home took us along to the "Designed for Drama Event" at the Biltmore Mansion...
Biltmore House - From My Carolina Home

What a beautiful collection of costumes worn in movies based on George Vanderbilt's favorite books!  I think you will love the selection she shared with us and if you want to see more, the exhibit continues into July.  Be sure to check out the links she provided for more information.

Carole always manages to find the most interesting exhibits...
Quilt Garden - From My Carolina Home

Apparently, if you are visiting the NC Arboretum, you must see the Quilt Garden!  This grid of planting squares surrounded by concrete strips changes every year.  As you can see above, the flowers were planted to look like butterflies!  Swing by her blog to see more of these beautiful gardens!

Tanya from The Other Side of the Road shared details of her fabulous trip to Florence, Italy...

The afternoon golden glow she mentions is so beautifully captured in the photo above.  Truly a magical place!

While we are talking about Italy, let's pop over to Venice with Bonnie from Living with Thanksgiving...
Venice Italy - Living with Thanksgiving

A canal cruise followed by a Bellini, while listening to a live orchestra in St. Mark's Square...yes, that sounds like the perfect anniversary present to me!  Be sure to also visit the rest of Bonnie's Italy tour.  You won't be disappointed!

Now, if you have never thought about traveling to Croatia, Pam from Everyday Living will introduce you to a region of the world that you will want to put on your list...
Croatia - Everyday Living

What a stunning place with a rich history and I can't get over the beautiful water!  No wonder Dubrovnik is called the "Pearl of the Adriatic"!
