The Blog Roll Notes From Laura

Sometimes you just have to let it happen.

I’m so exhausted this week that I don’t have the energy to put together even one “Italian best-practice sales tip.” Instead what I have for you is an outpouring from my heart about the need for connection. This connection was a key factor in our family deciding to relocate to Sicily. A sense of belonging was needed… Read More »


Grief or Gift?

Imagine it’s Christmas morning. You’ve eagerly waited for months, barely able to hold back your anticipation. You run downstairs and find a big pile of gifts with your name on them. Santa’s been very kind to you this year, it seems. So, you dig in – unwrapping gift after brightly-colored gift. You’re so excited, hoping… Read More »


From Sicily with love

The secret to joy…

I’ll be honest, I’ve given up on silly New Year’s promises. * I’m not going to kid myself that I’ll lose 50 pounds. * I’m not going to bake bread from scratch every day. * I’m not going to master Chinese in the next 4 months. Instead of criticizing myself for what I’ve been doing… Read More »

Say cheese!

I hope you’ve enjoyed a warm holiday season – filled with a multitude of merriment and family fun. After spending three weeks in Italy, it’s been heartening for me to return home during the holidays –when we gather with loved ones around time-honored traditions, passed from one generation to the next. It’s almost like being back in Italy!… Read More »

The Art of Travel

Today marks the fifteenth day that I’ve been in Italy. I’ve drunk in the sights (and a cup or two of Chianti). I’ve wandered medieval stone streets. And, of course, I’ve eaten my share of tortellini, prosciutto and tiramisù. But, ya know what? Before I worked in travel, I was an annoyingly know-it-all traveler. I’d research… Read More »


Pop the question…

No, I’m not talking about weddings, proposals or anything along those lines even if my subject line implies it. I am talking about posing a question before you “get in bed” with someone you should always ask “Do you go direct?” I know that may sound very intimate and even naughty, but don’t let your mind wander down that path. Let… Read More »


Wintry wonders, Italian-style

Torrone tempts your tastebuds. Strings of lights blink overhead. Where are you? In a mercatino di Natale — one of Italy’s Christmas markets. Throughout late November and December, towns big and small are home to outdoor holiday bazaars — selling candied nuts, local liqueurs, and carved ornaments. Bordering Switzerland, the Trentino area is a place where Italian and… Read More »


Sometimes you just have to let it happen....I’m so exhausted this week that I don’t have the energy to put together even one “Italian best-practice sales tip.” Instead what I have for you is an outpouring from my heart about the need for connection. This connection was a key factor in our family deciding to relocate to Sicily. A sense of belonging was needed to refresh our spirits and so, we just let it happen. You need to know that my parents decided to come down the boot to stay with us this year. My family is originally from Turin which is in northern Italy but my husband Michael and I, along with our kids, decided to move to Sicily because we wanted to stay warm in the winter. Turin’s weather is like New York and Sicily’s climate is more like San Diego. So here we are, living in the south in the city of Palermo which has just been nominated as a European Cultural city for
