Lunch With The Queen Revisited



Here is where and when it all began!



This is a re-posting of one of my very first blog posts back in February.....and it was here at this Valentine's Day luncheon given by our dear friend Evi....that Carole of Maynard Greenhouse encouraged me to start my own blog....to see the entire post click here.

I am so glad she did! Because that ultimately brought me to where I am now....
visiting Valentina of Les Cotrions in Lucca, Italy!
Pictures of our adventures will be coming shortly....I hope you are all having a good week!
:) Laura
