Italiano dreamin’


I have been reunited with an old friend of mine, due to my unrelenting cyber-stalking skills. Once I’m done with THE PAPER, I plan to devote a whole post to her. Actually, I plan a trilogy of posts about my three oldest/dearest friends who are a HUGE part of who I am today — Lisa, Katie and Erin — though I credit Lisa with much of my goofiness and psychic skills.

Lisa currently lives in Napoli (Naples, to us gringos) with her husband Mimmo and bambino-to-be. Her blog has opened my eyes to all these other women who are living out their dreams in Italy, much like Lisa. I love to read their blogs, because a) many of them are fabulous photographers, and I can look at their work and…ahhhh *sigh*; b) it is so interesting to read about “expats” living in a totally different culture; and c) I can daydream about places Andrew and I [and the girls, once they are old enough to appreciate it] can visit someday.

Here are a few that I follow:

The Life I Choose

Ms. Adventures in Italy

Did any of this make sense? I’m writing this on three glasses of wine…

    You’re psychic?! That explains a lot.

    (I had better stop thinking so you can’t read my mind.)
