Over the past week and Easter weekend, the weather has changed from spring to winter and back to spring again on the Amalfi Coast. After a rainy and cold Saturday, the sun peeked out for a little bit on Easter Sunday before another storm came through in the evening. I popped my head outside the window just long enough to take one photo after Easter lunch with family in Vettica. It was a beautiful moment.
As the raindrops started to fall again, it made me stop to appreciate the beauty of spring and the change of seasons. The sunshine breaking through the clouds and forming a rainbow, a gentle rain turning the soil a deep, rich brown, the buds on the plants opening to form bright green leaves – signs of spring that seem to resonate within me more this year than usual. It feels as though a change of seasons is taking place inside me right now as I begin to walk down many new paths, in my relationship with my husband after our wedding this winter, in new writing work that fuels my passions and in a focus on finishing the first draft of the novel with my mother this year. I look forward to discovering where these new paths will lead … and to enjoying the new sights along the way. May this spring bring you new discoveries and many beautiful moments!
Laura, that is a lovely photo. I love the rainbow. All the best with all your projects.
Thanks so much, Cathy! 🙂

Thanks Scarlett! The double rainbow was faint, but it was definitely there. Started to pour again seconds after I took that photo, so I couldn’t get a better one to show it. But it’s there for those that look carefully like you. Thank you for your sweet comment!
The rainbow picture is just beautiful!
Thanks, Gil! I just love a good rainbow. 🙂
Hi Laura, I just stumbled onto your blog and am enjoying it very much. I still have lots of family in Vettica and Lone di Amalfi, though it’s been 10 years since I’ve been there. Ciao.
Thanks for your comment! I’m happy you happened across my blog, and I hope you’ll enjoy following. I hope you’ll be back to visit your family again soon, too! 🙂
