Merry Christmas from downtown Huntington two nights ago. And a big apology for the blurriness of the picture! Between my shaky hands, holding an umbrella, a book, and my purse sliding down from my shoulder, this was the best I could do. But I'm just so tickled with the lights on this building, I had to share. Puts us right up there with NYC (tee hehe) and its Chrysler Building(?), Empire State Building(?). I know one of them is all lit up and the colors change depending on holidays and whatever else.
Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope it is a happy time with lots of good food, laughter, and love!

- 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.
