If you guessed that I would be visiting Corey Amaro of Tongue in Cheek in the south of France or Manon 21 or Ciel D'Orange or Paris or anywhere else in France....the answer is again no...although Corey and Manon...if you're watching...I would LOVE to come someday!....
If you guessed Sweden or Venice.....the answer is no, not this time...
I will be traveling next week, along with my husband and sister and brother in law, to Italy! And... while traveling in Italy, I will be meeting our blogging friend, the lovely Valentina and Paola from Les Cotrions in Lucca! I am so grateful for this opportunity to tag along with my family...it would not be possible without them... and so very thankful that Vale and Paola have graciously agreed to meet up with us and show us a little of their beautiful hometown....
Magdalena of Color Sepia is the winner as she guessed: "Anyway, i think that it is fantastic...and I think that you are going to Italy or France...Hugs and have a lovely dayMagdalena/Color Sepia"
So, needless to say, I am thrilled and excited for this wonderful opportunity and the fact that I will meet Paola and Vale, who is always so sweet and kind to all of us with her supportive and caring comments....well....that will be the "icing on the cake"!!
I will be sure to take many photographs of Lucca, as well as Rome, Pisa and Florence. I hope to see all the sights and perhaps get a little shopping in as well! Thank you again for playing along! Ciao! Laura :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
