Greece

If you follow me on social media then you know that I recently returned from a wonderful trip to Greece.  If you have been following for a while, then you also know that the hubs and I actually went to Greece for the first time two years ago, and that this recent trip was our second go-round.  Well, with that being said, I figured it was about time to give you all a little Graceful Guide for all things Greece...or at least how I know it.

So by now I am sure you all can tell that I LOVE pictures.  Last year Jon Luke and I went to Paris to celebrate our one year anniversary and I thought it would be really special to have pictures taken while we were there (I will have to share those soon).  As the blog has grown, we have had the opportunity to work with many amazing photographers around the U.S., providing us with fun pictures of the two of us.  All of that being said, this got me thinking for our trip to Greece.  I began to do some research and decided again that it would be special to have pictures done while in Santorini.  Again, I know…this is very excessive.  BUT, I am SO happy we took these photos and am so thankful for Les Anagnou Photographers! Paul and Yiota were amazing to work with, and we had so much fun wandering the streets of Santorini with Yiota to capture these amazing images!

The City of White

The City of White

One of the most well known things about Santorini (and one of the things I loved) is how the towns are like little white cities sitting at the top of the cliffs.  I did not know what to expect completely when we first arrived, but I was blown away.  Sometimes pictures can be deceiving, but Santorini is just as beautiful (if not more beautiful) than all of the pictures I had seen online.  I absolutely love these little cities of white and am missing it every day!

While in Greece, we spent our first four days in Mykonos then took the ferry over to Santorini.  It was an easy ride and we were on this beautiful island by evening, ready for dinner with a view.  On our first full day I could not wait to get up and explore.  The island of Santorini has multiple cities/towns on it including Oia, Imerovigli, Fira and Pygros to name a few.  Our hotel was Oia, so we stayed there for the day wandering the streets and getting lost in the culture.  Amoudi bay sits at the bottom of Oia so boats will drop cruise ship visitors off, making the streets full of hustle and bustle.  (Apparently we were there right before the tourist season really picks up which was great because I thought there were a lot of people then!)  The town of Oia is literally picture perfect and I loved spending so much time here!
