So, Why do I love thee Atlanta?

So, Atlanta. Why oh why do I love thee? It's complicated.   Honestly, you had me at Peachtree. Every time we went to the grand ole Capitol of GA when I was a kid I loved it. Even through my teen years, when I lived there for my first career jobs, and more recently visiting…

So, Paris, you had me at Bonjour…

So, I thought Rome was all that and a bag of Utz and it is, but France with its wider than life boulevards and matchy-matchy buildings is a contender. I will start out by saying that I like the feel of the Italian lifestyle better from the 2 cities I visited in Italy (Rome and…

So, packing with a purpose for travel…

So, during our trip to Rome, we took a train to Venice for a day and a half. Venice in a few words: breathtaking, magical, romantic. I have never seen anything like it. It's so old world, yet so modern. It's the guys in the striped shirts and the striped poles that I have dreamt…

So, wow! Italia. I never posted about how great it was (is)! Pt.1 Rome

So, the lucky and blessed and deserving girl who I am, was whisked away to Roma in November with ML. The kiddo was pissed! But hey, it took me 4 decades to get there, so she can wait. Roma and Venezia. Ciao Bellas! From the minute we got there, we were in love with Italia.…
