Wednesday, January 20, 2010 Rome!

Just me. Free to be me all by myself (went away on an overnight work trip to Rome). A first in almost 3 years!

I had a non-stop private celebration throughout the two days of hard work. It didn't even matter that I hardly had a free minute to indulge in my favorite Italian city because there was plenty of time to do nothing but be me and that was what I wanted.

But as time ticked by, my legs instinctively itched for the airport, my heartstrings pulled me south. By the 35th hour or so (I was away for a total of 41), I couldn't wait to get back home to the little pieces of me that were patiently waiting for my return.

Snug. Perfect fit. And then I felt whole again.

Conclusions? It was great to have a little time away, but coming home is even better!

A long holiday

Hello again and Happy 2010!
Three wonderful weeks in Los Angeles
Settling back into life in Sicily with a positive outlook for 2010
Feeling energetic
Still carrying those special moments from holiday time with family close to me...
Let me share with you a few of them!
