gracias, grazie, thank you

my blog has been on vacation longer than i have i think…but i’m back!  back to the states and back to blogging.

my mom and i just returned from a wonderful trip to italy and spain.  three weeks together non-stop.  every minute almost except for showering, which you don’t do as often there as you do here so that means even more time together.  did we get along?  of course!  we had a great time together.

i must prelude with saying i am one of the luckiest people i know.  the catapult of this trip for my mom and i came from some amazingly special friends who started a fund for us when my dad passed away a year and a half ago.  spain held a special place in his heart from the first time the two of them came over to visit me while i was living there.

a trip to remember him.  a trip to celebrate him.  a trip to create new memories.

for those of you reading this, you know who you are.  thank you.  thank you from the bottom of my heart.  thank you from the bottom of my mom’s heart.  we are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives regardless of losing a gem.

with that said, enjoy the upcoming stories, be jealous of the food, and book a trip there!  we had quite an entertaining time that we will never forget.
