Last Day to Vote! Italy Magazine Blog Awards

Dreaming on Lake Como

Dreaming on Lake Como

When I took my first whirlwind trip through Italy over a decade ago, I never dreamed that I would become a passionate writer of bella Italia!  What I do remember is being in a state of pure delight. It was my first trip overseas and my mind was absolutely captivated with the culture, history and beauty of this lovely country. Since then I have had the good fortune of returning several times.

My blog began a year ago as a result of a great desire to share my love of Italy and to inspire a spirit of adventure. In the process, I have met many wonderful readers and fellow bloggers who have consistently shown their support and appreciation. You have all been my inspiration to keep on going, to write that next article. My life has become enriched as I have enjoyed getting to know each one of you. I thank you with all my heart.

I had to read the notice twice before the announcement sank in. You can only imagine the sense of honor I feel to be in the running with those other blogs that I have always admired so much. I have considered them wonderful examples of writers inspired with the rare ability to express the essence of Italy and all of its beautiful attractions.

I am so thankful for the exposure that Italy Magazine’s awards will bring to my blog and to all of us. I encourage you to check out the amazing blogs that are in the running by clicking on this link. You will see mine, Timeless Italy, listed on the page. Cast your vote if you wish. Final voting is taking place now until February 8th. Winners will be announced on February 10th.

My heartfelt thanks to you all….

Grazie Mille!
