I met up with Sophia and her mama on Sunday, July 1, with both of us driving half the distance (about a 4 hour trip for each of us so it's nice to meet halfway). We've been having quite a nice time I think and she seems pretty pleased to be here. She is truly a delightful little girl and for having to sometimes deal with a crotchety old grammy who is used to a very quiet life, she's very well behaved.
I've taken pictures here and there as we've been out and about, but always with my I-phone cause I never think to take the camera with me. Here's what I have as of Saturday, July 7.

- West Virginia
- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
