October 2012

Italy did a job on me. I fell in love, and now I’m itching to go back. It was my first time there and although I spent 12 days there I could have stayed longer. I'm starting to plan our next trip and I'm trying to figure out how I can include Rome as a layover stop on our way to the Caribbean.

One of the girls on my team returned today from her honeymoon and she went to Italy and Barcelona. We went out for lunch today, and as she spoke about her trip and talked about all of places that she ate, it just brought back absolutely fabulous memories of my first trip to Barcelona - the food, the sites, and the food. Sigh!

I feel like I've lost the plot a bit and I'm trying to get myself back on track. It's easier said than done, on this very personal journey. In my professional life, I’m very successful, but in this journey I'm really terrified of failing. Yup shit-faced terrified, and I'm not really sure why.

We love lentils. Living with, and cooking for a vegetarian I look for different ways to make sure that they are getting enough protein. My husband likes soup and he likes lentils so ergo I made him lentil soup.
