I've noticed our numbers have dropped slightly--perhaps by my own fault. There has been a lot going on so far this summer... a vacation on the Chesapeake Bay, planning a big camping party for my son's birthday, a couple of power blackouts, a minor health crisis (I'm OK and getting better)... all the while trying to put the finishing touches on a fireplace mantle and hearth that I built toward the end of last year. (The hand made tiles are finally installed!)
So, look forward to a deluge of new articles and photos in the coming weeks. I actually am backlogged on editing many that are almost finished.
We're still here, living our Italian life, cooking, laughing, loving and picking our home grown tomatoes from our garden...
