I love NY

Oh no, I really have disappeared from the blogosphere! I have stumbled into that trap--fall behind your posts and you might never catch up. I have an immense backlog of photos that continues to pile up and remind me of all the wonderful things I would like to share with you. But for now, let me post this shot of Robert Indiana's LOVE sculpture that helps, at least in part, to explain my recent absence: a very last-minute trip to NYC where my west coast based immediate family converged with my extended east coast family and I found my heartstrings could not be left out of this one. So my son and I crossed the Atlantic for 9 days of jet lagged fun. It was totally worth it and we were so lucky to be able to make it home with no delays despite the cloud of volcanic ash that covered so much of Europe. This sculpture really does sum up my sentiments for the Big Apple -NYC, I really do love you!


  1. Missed you, and so glad you're back! it's so nice to find out that you were having an adventure while you were gone. I LOVE NY TOO! Lucky girl...

  2. Thank you janis, I have missed reading your posts too. Glad to hear we share a love for wonderful NYC!

  3. Hi there,

    I found your details through expatblog, I hope you might be able to help me with my strange request!

    I am a Producer working on a television show called House Hunters International in New York which follows English speaking expats in their quest to purchase a house abroad. I am hoping to find an English speaking expat to profile who has moved to Sicily. Have you purchased a home in Sicily? If so, I wonder if you might be interested in getting involved?! Please find a little blurb about the show below:

    House Hunters International is a half-hour program currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV). The program is a spin-off of the popular House Hunters and has spent the last several seasons exploring the idiosyncrasies of buying real estate in other countries. HHI is about a personal journey of discovery and the making of life-long dreams.

    The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where buyers and their real estate agents tour 3 homes. At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different. A great deal of effort will be made to capture rich visuals and to provide sequences where viewers will be exposed to local vistas, traditions, lifestyles and architecture.

    Please get in touch if you have any more questions about the show. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best wishes and many thanks,
