An Italian Detour

As you may have read, I've been battling some recalcitrance about blogging lately, although I nonetheless managed to post a What I Wore post that shamelessly revealed my lazy summer style. Now, we're over in Vancouver, getting ready for our first overnight baby-sitting gig with Baby Eloise (5 months; we suspect sleep loss tonight!). I'm heading out for a run, hoping to beat the thunder, lightning, hail, and heavy rain forecast for later this morning. And still not ready to write a blogpost.

 

So imagine how pleased I am to be able, instead, to offer you a little outing to a gorgeous little-known seaside resort a day trip from Rome. The tour guide is my daughter, who's pictured above, at said resort, with my granddaughter whom I'll be cuddling again in less than two months. Can't wait. Meanwhile, if you'd like to meet her mom and take a little trip to a Tyrrenhian island, step this way.

and now, if you don't mind, I've gotta run! If you feel like coming back to tell me how clever and gorgeous my daughter is, well, you know what we proud mommas are like . . .

    1. Thanks, D, and so kind of you to offer her tips on future travel. Yes, it's the first time any of our grandchildren have lived any distance away, and it's tough, but it's exciting to see them have the opportunity. Frankie will speak two languages!

  3. This looked fun. Top marks for making effort with small child. Always worth it despite lack of sleep and temper. What a blissful place...

    1. I think they've been doing really well to do these weekend outings with a baby and all her gear in the crazy Roman heat. But as you point out, it seems worth it to get to such a spot.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
