Again, apologies

I apologize.

This blog has been inactive for a ridiculous amount of time.

I found 25 unmoderated comments and have been receiving emails form friends who complain the lack of updates. That is unacceptable!

Work and my life have really taken a toll on my blog time, but that's no excuse, especially when on the reading end are folks like you who are so affectionate, loyal and actually interested in what I have to say!

Take Debbie, for example.

Not only has she been on one of my foodie walks, awarded me with a trophy, she also likes to send things in the mail. Last month we received a box full of goodies and happiness, photos, clothes and love.

And Jeff? He's a keeper. When he last visited Rome he brought me some of his state's specialties, a toy for my son and he treated us to lunch in one of my favorite places.

Cannot forget to mention Geli, Rosaria, Eddie, Jim and Lori, among the first to follow this blog from its very beginnings in 2009. They have been a constant source of compassion, love and sound advice. I'd also like to remember the friends that are no longer posting, but looking over us from heaven, Renee and Tessa, along with Brian and Moannie, and the other angels I've had the fortune of crossing paths with thanks to this blog.

There are many of you that I'd like to thank for hanging in there and always supporting this blog. You have to trust me, I'll keep posting – and I promise it'll be more often.

So, this is not goodbye, it's a loud and ebullient arrivederci!


  1. Totally Understand and I am the same because I am not blogging much. People will start talking and think we have run off together ROFL

  2. always good to see....hope you are doing well...and your little one as well...though i imagine him like mine is getting not so little any more....

  3. Here is the thing about blogging. We start our blogs for us and we should never feel badly for not having the time to post.
    People who read our blogs and kindly take the time to comment should also understand that life comes first. We should comment because we want to not because we expect you to respond.
    I used to be a very prolific blogger but now working full time I don't have the time to go to the fun places I used to go to and blog about. No one can hold that against me. Or you.
    Keeping up more than 1 blog is even more difficult. You do a great job and owe us nothing.
    BTW my 29 year old son was raving the other night about the chocolate that we had from you a few years ago. It made quite an impression.

  4. You do have a life too .... sometimes it is so hard to keep it going when you are so busy... If they are loyal readers they will be back :-) :-)

  5. The picture is perfect. Life can certainly get busy!

  6. Good to see a post from you! I look forward to more regular posts, if your life allows for that. Your Instagram photos are fun to see, but I love your writing and reflections.

  7. I've really missed your posts, too.


  8. Thanks for the update Eleonora! I understand how life sometimes gets in the way of blogging! but good to hear you are ok...

  9. Life moves on my friend and I do not believe you should need to apologise for the lack of posts. However it is lovely to hear from you when time allows.

  10. Those of us with day jobs *and* and a blog will understand perfectly! Good luck and looking forward to your next post. -Frank
