When the blog first started, it was a private blog and couldn't even be found on search engines. The following year, I made it a little more accessible and the year after, it actually started to gain readership from around the world and people who I didn't know! I went from writing about what we were doing each day to writing recipes, travel advice, interviews, collaborating with a few small businesses and sharing pictures from our vacations, summers and every day lives. I'm so proud of the work that I put in to the blog and where it went and the contacts that I made through it and the people I met.
Now though, I feel like this is a great and natural place to end. I'm doing some freelance writing and that takes up all of whatever work time I have, which will be even less in a few months, once baby #2 comes along! I'm so happy to have this blog to look back on all of our adventures. And I'm so thankful to all of my readers, wherever you are, for your emails and comments and interest.
I get a lot of emails from readers asking about expat life or travels in Italy and Scotland and I'm still happy to answer any and all questions, so please don't hesitate to send me an email! (My email can be found in the contact section).
For now though.....a few of my favorite posts throughout the years:
How to Recycle in Italy....
"This is Italy"

Favorite Travel Destinations
Our entire Tour of Italy....
On reverse culture shock
It's crazy to me to think that when I started this blog, Ryan and I weren't even engaged yet. Since then we've gotten married, moved from Italy to Scotland, had our first child and are expecting our second and have had a million other adventures in between. Looking back on all of the posts throughout the years, I feel so lucky.
