Your Turn!

Today is the day! I have been REALLY excited about the Healthworks Blogger Bash ever since I heard about it back in March when Healthworks interviewed me about the Boston Marathon for their newsletter. I will be back with a full recap tomorrow; with 20 Boston bloggers in one place, it should be a LOT of fun!

With my blog’s one year birthday coming up in June, I spent part of last night going through old posts, comments, and stats. I think one of my favorite parts of blogging is that it helps me to recall SO many different things that happened throughout the last year, all of my travel, food, and wine experiences, some big events, and my favorites. I can tell by my stats and comments that I have a group of regular readers (thank you, thank you, thank you!), and I would love to learn more about you. So, whether you comment regularly or have been a lurker, say hello with a comment and a little about yourself. I’ll start with a few ideas; feel free to answer any or all of the questions!

If you could take a one week vacation right now what would it be?            Me & the husband, a pile of magazines, a house in Sicily and a couple days of Sicilian wine tasting in the sun. Or a week at Auberge du Soleil

Your favorite thing/s about where you live? Small city with green space, lovely architecture, close to lots of beaches and mountains, growing restaurant/foodie scene
