2010 was an eventful year for us.   Of course, moving to Italy was our biggest event.  We spent months preparing to go and months on the other side getting settled.  Despite that, we managed to fit in a lot of fun and travel.  We went camping in the U.S. before we left.  I’ve yet to see anything that beats the natural beauty in the US.   We also visited beautiful and fascinating places in Italy once we moved.  (It seemed like the right thing to do since we didn’t have a place to live yet!)   We stayed in a castle in Umbria and visited cities like Assisi, Perugia and Bevagna.  In our own area, we’ve visited Paestum, Amalfi and Sorrento.  So many places to explore.    

We’ll also remember 2010 as the year Luca became a U.S. citizen and the year I left the Air National Guard after 23 years.    I’ll experience a new world in the AF Reserves. 

We’re settled now and adjusting to our new life.  The boys are picking up Italian like sponges and making friends at school.  I’m also getting the hang of things here.  Luca is enjoying his new position.  2011 is going to be a good year.  I can feel it.  It has to be when it started out with a new baby in the family.  Luca’s brother and his wife had a baby girl on the 1st!   

May you all be happy and prosperous in this wonderful New Year.

Our Year in Review…
