Take a Trip with Me





Happy New Year, friends!  What a great Christmas we had over here, complete with a family cruise to Grand Cayman and Cozumel to ring in the new year. So far, so good, in the 2013 department:)

Nachi Cocum Beach Club- Coumel, Mexico


But today, I'd like to take you on another journey. Many of you mentioned enjoying my post about my life in Italy.  For those of you who don't know, I lived there from 1989-2006.  You can read a little bit about it here. Sadly, the kids and I don't get back there too often due to crazy airfare costs ( but Lorenzo goes to see family every year.) We did make it back to Florence though last June for two glorious weeks to see friends and family. Here are some highlights in print, done in multiple posts, so stay tuned for more.(NOTE...the photo quality is lacking because I lost the originals when transferring them from my iphone to computer:((
