A big Welcome to my New York Times readers, it’s great to meet you here. As you may have guessed I have a passion for Italy. I’m hoping it’s something we share… perhaps we also share similar dreams. A simple home in Italy, a life less hectic, time to spend with my husband and children, living the good life. If you are here because you have a dream I can tell you that they do come true, if our little family can do it so can you!
So what is your dream, why is it so important to you?
Just over a year ago I was contacted out of the blue by a journalist writing an article about Bloggers who renovate. Massively exciting, we spoke on the phone about dreams and a life lived out of boxes.
Today the article Expatriate Bloggers Chronicle Details of Home Renovations went “live” at The New York Times.
Moving from those early excited moments to the final glory of the finished article in print, is a little like renovating. Patience, details, and looking beyond the obvious to tell a story. So firstly I’d like to thank Roxana Popescu for seeing something special at Renovating Italy, and congratulate the other writers.
If there’s anything I’ve learned since starting this blogging adventure, it’s never give up on your dreams, and share from the heart. If you do that, others with “longed for dreams” will somehow find you. The friendships are priceless and I treasure each one.
So if you are visiting today from the New York Times or the International Herald Tribune I’d like to say welcome and I look forward to getting to know you!
