If you follow this blog regularly, I apologize for making you wonder where I have been. It has been a busy month and will continue to be so in the upcoming months for me. To backtrack, my husband and I went on our dream vacation to Italy in September. It was all that I expected and more, and I hope to return someday. I especially loved the Tuscany region with its rolling hills, old stone farmhouses, statuesque cypress trees, vast olive groves and grape vineyards. It truly was my happy place. A close second was the Amalfi Coast with its majestic walls of houses that seem to grow out of and blanket the steep hillsides above the sea.
We ate a lot. We drank a lot. We walked a lot. And we took a lot of pictures. I'd like to share a few samples of the sights and taste of Italy with you in snapshots. Please excuse the quality of the photographs. They were taken with my phone and a little point and shoot camera. I'll start with the picture on the top of this page. It was a simple breakfast (Ooops! I mean snack. We didn't drink that early in the morning!) spread at our little farmhouse in Poggibonsi. We did enjoyed fresh picked grapes and figs (not pictured here) every morning from our Tuscany backyard. They are sweet and succulent!
And now for some news: I decided to make a career change and closed my daycare business of 16 years prior to going on vacation. I am in the midst of working on my next career move. Additionally, I have also undertaken a huge project of cleaning out the house, which involves the purging of many years of personal and daycare business clutter. Once that is done, it will be time to move onto some overdue DIY home improvement projects. In addition, I have other little projects on the side. With everything that is going on, I am sad to say that it leaves me with very little time for blogging. I am not saying goodbye. However, I will be scaling back a lot on posting for the near future and will publish recipes as my schedule permits.
To all of my blogging friends, I will miss visiting each and every one of you regularly but will check in with you when I can. I hope to see you more frequently when things settle down. To my regular readers, thank you for coming back time after time. I appreciate each and every one of your visits, and I hope you continue to do so.
Until next time, take care!
