It's my birthday!

Today is my birthday. No matter my age, I love my birthday. I'm so grateful for this life and on this 62nd trip around the Sun, I couldn't be happier.

This past week, I've been receiving cards, gifts and sweet text messages. I've enjoyed lunches and dinners with good friends and family. Bob made me a birthday brunch this morning and then I shopped all afternoon treating myself to some new clothes and makeup plus my free birthday drink at Starbucks. Tonight, I will take a hot bath and watch a Hallmark movie. All in all, the perfect day.

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to Italy visiting Lake Como, Lake Garda and Chioggia which is on a Venetian lagoon. As much as I love the ocean, seeing the lakes with a backdrop of the mountains was absolutely breathtaking. I'll share more pictures soon, but here I am pictured above my new favorite city, Verona, the land of Romeo and Juliet.

While I'm still not back on Facebook, I have created a new Instagram account where I've posted a few travel photos (not in real time) with some new haikus I've written. If you'd like to follow me there, I'm @diane.dicola.

Until next time, hope you're all enjoying the beautiful colors that October brings...yet another reason why I love my birthday...Autumn.
