Writing view

Okay, if I can't get anything done here, I might as well throw in the towel.

It's great to be back in Colorado (even if it's in the middle of a "heat wave").

Now, I have to write . . .

Check one off the bucket list!

It was supposed to be Jamaica, but what a fabulous week in Capri!

Middle's senior trip was originally going to be with a large group of thirteen girls and their thirteen mothers to an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica. Not jazzed at the prospect, I dangled the opportunity of the two of us heading to the Amalfi Coast instead. Lucky for me, Middle jumped at it.

It was a week of walking and shopping and eating and boating and sightseeing that neither of us will soon forget. From the marbled colonnade of Villa San Michele, to cruising through the iconic Faraglioni Rocks, to the electric blue of the Grotto Azura, to the fabulous lemon fettuccini, it was all superb.

Throw in a couple pair of Capri sandals made by Schettino's (the same cobbler who made them for Jackie O), limoncello on the piazetta, and a suite at the Punta Tragara Hotel and you have the makings of a dream vacation.

Thank you for foregoing Jamaica, Middle, and helping me check one off the bucket list!
