30 days of thanks...
well, this morning we are greeted with the calm after the storm. hurricane Noel is moving away from us & i must say i am most grateful that we did not receive a direct hit from this storm nor any others this season. along these lines i am also very grateful for Little Man's passion for all things weather. it is such a joy to see your children live their passion in a positive way.
woo hoo!! we have finally matched the dates with locations for our spring italian travel adventure!! now some fun begins... lodging in roma is secured. in umbria we at least have an idea of where to stay. but venezia...too many good things here!
our last stay in venezia we required lodging for 6...& between the rialto & piazzo san marco we found this little gem...la foresteria. they made us comfy in an 8 bed canal-view room that had 2 private bathrooms just a scoot across the hall. the only downside for D. & i was the lack of a double bed ;) but we made do! the price for our lodging was extremely reasonable. and location, location, location! we were right in the middle of where we wanted to be for our first visit to venezia.
but now, for some reason, i am holding back...exploring other places, feeling a bit more adventurous. we shall see...
poetry...today's offering here!
and with that, i am off to the "big city" with D. for some overdue errands (including purchasing an updated book on venezia a la rick steves) & some coconut shrimp at our favorite thai restaurant!
buon giorni a tutti!!
