I didn’t start blogging until I was in my early 40s. I’ve always journalled, but didn’t start a blog until I had to do one for a graduate class. I’m no stranger to what would have been called “keeping a diary or a journal” in the Dark Ages before the Internet. Yes…I wrote in a diary with a pen.
I kept diaries every summer vacation or trip. I would write in my journal each night about the day’s goings on. My journals were either an hour-by-hour account of my day or a listing of what food I had eaten including food wrappers, straws, and the occasional bottle cap. As you can imagine by the end of my trip, my journal was rather thick what with all the papers and wrappers and junk.
Journalling was a great way to record trips. Even though I am careful about what I blog about, I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have this blog. This blog is my lifeline to the internet. It’s become my livelihood…in a “Little Engine That Could” kind of way. I absolutely love sharing stories about the fun times I have with my family or even an experience from my childhood.
One experience I journalled about extensively was my time in Italy. When I was a teen, we lived in Milan and traveled throughout northern Italy, and even down to Rome. Reading, then watching Eat Pray Love brought back fond memories of Italian gelato in many different flavors…thin, crust pizza…mozzarella cheese balls…Pelligrino water. Like Julia Roberts it is possible to eat your way around Italy. I preferred Elizabeth Gilbert’s book to the movie, but the movie was still very good.
I want to share Eat Pray Love with you. I have an Eat Pray Love DVD for one lucky reader!
