Touch of Heaven

My husband and I took a few days to explore the Chianti wine country and work our way towards Sienna meandering the scenic roads and wineries. The greatest part was having no real agenda, and a few free days just to explore. We had just left the most amazing, romantic little hotel in the countryside that we stumbled upon quite unexpectedly the night before. As we left the next morning, I had asked him to find me my poppy field, I so wanted to photograph and paint a red poppy field and we had not found any yet! Right then something caught his eye and he made an immediate U-turn, he spotted it out of the corner of his eye and not ten minutes after I voiced it! Oh….so beautiful…I ran like a little girl right into the middle of it and started taking photos, grinning from ear to ear. I really think a little part of me went to heaven and back that day. Have you ever seen something so beautiful it makes your heart hurt a little (but in a good way?) This is what I felt standing in that field
