Whitney and Dan
We realize many of you would like to extend your well wishes through traditional gifts, but we have decided to register for something a little different. Instead of a pots, pans, and plates registry, we have set up this one, which will allow you to gift us experiences and memories on our dream honeymoon! “But what about a toaster or towels?” you ask. Well, as most of you know, we both had well-established households before we met (we're like the Noah's Ark of home goods - two of everything!). We have the toaster covered (times 2!) and while new towels might be nice, in time they will lose their softness. The memories made in Italy can never be replaced!Florence, Italy Rome, Italy Positano, Italy Castellina In Chianti, Italy Sorrento Peninsula, Italy
