Rambling thoughts Mid-Week & Blog Parties

Sometime I just have to get away, even if its in my day-dreams. Life is good but sometimes days become too routine. I'm finding that as I get older and start preparing for my kids to leave for college, I'm starting to wonder about my future. So what shall I dream of?

I know I want to travel to Italia. Maybe I'm hoping to star in my own Italian romance filled with great scenery, delicious foods, exciting fashion shows, and hidden villas. I dream of shopping the local market for fresh fruits, vegetables, and seafood.
I can see me walking up cobble-stone streets to a quaint little cafe shop around the corner. Visions of old-world sculptures and paintings fill my imagination. The air is filled with the sound of Italian music and the laughter of women as they bake fresh artisan breads.
I imagine a life of centered around family and friends; living a life of culture and elegance. My dreams take me to the streets of Milan for shopping at chic boutiques where the fashion designers of Europe come to brag.
Then off to the Colosseum in Rome on a hot summer night for gladiator games of times gone by. At night I am on a romantic gondola ride on the canals of Venice. Oh how a girl can dream....
