A few of you have mentioned my new header photo. It is a photo of the entrance to La Badia, the hotel in Sorrento that were were lucky to stay at during our trip to Italy in 2007. It used to be a convent and is located on a hill overlooking the Bay of Naples. It is surrounded by a grove of olive and orange trees. Every morning after breakfast we would take a path through the olive trees and walk into town.
This was THE place we were introduced to limoncello....it became our ritual every night of our vacation to have a glass of limoncello. When we returned home, we went through a few bottles that summer. Some of our friends, and I think my sister Lisa, said it tasted like lemon pledge!
Janie, at Panini Girl, made a list of 10 things she would rather be doing on her blog. I believe they all had something to do with Italy. I would like to add to the list....I would like to be sipping a glass of limoncello on the balcony above, with that man in the picture, enjoying the view!
