    Default Hey!!!

    Okay, I keep missing everyone with Instant messaging! So HEY!!!! To say we've been busy is an understatement. Let's see, this summer we've spent a week in St. Thomas, came back, bought an interior design firm...stayed here for 3 weeks working it and then spent 10 days in Italy. Got back into town and have been catching up every since. Looks like I've missed out on tons here on tweleve. We spent 3 days on the Amalfi Coast, where La Dolci Vita was created...The Isle of Capri, Pompeii, Amalfi, Postiano...truly amazing and the way of life cannot be compared to. Then headed to Florance for a day. Then spent the last 6 days in Rome. Everytime we turned around, I was crying...I spent 5 years in college with each fall and spring fulfilling a mandatory architectural and art history course...I never thought I would get to see so many of the wonders that I had studied. At every turn there were tears in my eyes with appreciation and wonder and awe. And, I feel in love too with the lifestyle of the Italian people. It's truly amazing there. We went with a large group of people and about 1% of the people had the kind of experience that I did, really emotional. I guess 98% went to shop and see the pretty things. And, then there was the 1% of "ulgy" Americans...After a day at the Pompeiian ruins and the Island of Capri, here is an exact quote..."If this is all there is to Europe, you can have it. Nothing but ruins and trash..." I swear it was said. Hubby had to punch me in the ribs so I wouldn't say anything! I managed to say, "That's about the most amazing thing I've heard today." I had to say something! Trash my ...!! The shop owners had been cleaning their windows and sweeping before they opened shop. It was beautiful...Some people! Anyway...In Rome we found this amazing pastry shop. The best Babas anywhere called Lotti. The sweetest owners in the world. On the last day, the hubby was dragging me to the airport...I just didn't want to come back to reality. But, here I am and I keep missing everyone! So, once again..."Hey, Ya'll!!!"
