UPDATE: The poll is acting up...and I have no clue how to fix it! Feel free to respond via combox. And to reassure those who wonder, I have indeed forded the Tiber several times and would love to again. However, 3-4 days in Italy is NOT ENOUGH!!! So no slight intended to bella Italia. I just love it too much for this trip!
As many know, I turn 40 on Easter - all sorts of fun symbolism there, resurrection, life begins at 40, etc. I was all set to run off to Mexico for a week, leaving on the big night, with one of my dear friends/godmother to the boy, a beloved male friend of ours, who was also set to celebrate his 40th, and a group of 5 other grown-ups to an all-inclusive resort to bake my hide, pickle my liver, get massaged and facialed...and then my birthday buddy had to drop out for financial reasons, and the spirit of fun kinda fell out the bottom and we all decided to cancel. But my beloved knows I need to get away, and we are trying to decide how and where. As a family? Just the two of us? Cheap Europe trip? Islands? Or suck it up, get over it, stay home and save the money? Hard to know, and with the season approaching, I must make up my mind. I am open to suggestion!
