Colosseum, Rome

Welcome to another weekend!

I really appreciate everyone who helped make a strong push to get the 50 states. I received quite a few notes from people who are willing to help out. We really appreciate it.I don't want to limit it to just the 50 states though. Our goal is to not miss a day until the wedding. Right now we have enough to make it through next week but we need your help to keep it going after that.

If you are a new reader (of which I know there are many who randomly come across the blog) all you need to do is download the Save The Date from the blog, print it out, and take a picture of it in front of something unique, iconic, beautiful, scenic, or that we don't have. If you can't download it just email me at and we will mail you one. There really are no parameters. Please help out if you can. If you can't take a picture please forward this project on to someone who might be able to help us out.

Today's pictures are of the Colosseum in Rome. This is yet another place that I have dreamed of going. They way ancient buildings are able to last through the centuries with the limited technology in place is amazing. I have equal admiration for the Greek ruins (which we don't have yet). Granted the death and destruction of humanity that took place at the Colosseum was nothing to be proud of, it is a great piece of history from the Roman Empire.

Enjoy your weekend and if you are going somewhere, don't forget to take the Save The Date.
