Where was I you ask? Back in Little Rock…working. Susan, Tommy and Daniel were all off having a BIG time in Cortona, Italy. Jealous? Yes…yes I was!
In all honesty, it worked out perfect. Tommy and Susan planned to spend some time in Italy with T’s family and then head over to hang out with poor Julie once I returned. Even though I wasn’t there, I have to show some pics from their trip to Italy. It looks like something straight out of “Under the Tuscan Sun”.
And now…sidenote. The main excursion in Cortona Italy is a hike up the side of a mountain to go visit Saint Margherita. Supposedly, those who are truly saints do NOT decompose and smell like roses when they die (something to look forward to at my funeral :)). Well, this woman/saint sits at the top of this hill for about 900 years and still looks relatively…um…newly dead? So, DTS (Daniel, Tommy, Susan) hike up this hill in the 90 degree weather just to realize that it is closed for the afternoon siesta! Welcome to Europe my friends–nothing is ever as easy as it seems!
Bon Appetit! I am back to blogging, so get ready for some long posts! This one was no exception!
