Blog Birthday and a Video

I loved being a tourist in Rome, eating gelato and basking in history and culture. We wandered the cobblestone alleys, immersed in the sound of flowing Italian, like extras in a romantic movie.  Lunch was always spaghetti and the wine only Italian (we were there for just four days, not enough time to get sick of it).  At home I dreamed of going back, imagining myself sipping espresso on the bank of the Tiber.  Instead I read Eat, Pray, Love wondering why in the world the author decided to leave such a wonderful country to wash floors in an ashram.

I never did get back to Italy. Then last week I received a call asking if I wanted to create a short video on pasta for a competition. No, of course I didn’t. “Winner goes to Italy!” she quickly added before I could hang up. Hmm, this changes things a bit. I will sell my soul to get back to Italy so I agreed.

With the help of my friend Yael Segal-Ruder, who I now call Spielberg, we went into action to create our first video ever. It also happens to be my 2nd blog birthday this month, so if I may ask, please hop over to see my video (winner is the one with the most views so share it with all your friends).

Happy blog birthday + may you see Italy again soon!

You are all great! thanks for commenting and having as much fun with the video as I did (I never realized how serious some people can be). My dog, btw, refused to eat anything at the beginning because he already ate a hallah bread my neighbor threw into the yard (thinking I wasn’t looking).

Woohoo! Loved your video, you have my vote to get you back to Italy? Does that mean I can come and carry your luggage? Best of luck!

Best of luck with the video. I hate being filmed – or even having my photograph taken for that matter. Wow, can’t believe your blog is nearly two. That’s ANCIENT these days in the blog world! :) Long may we all continue…

Loved the video and hope it wins you the trip to Italy. Does Barilla promise to FEED the winner the whole time too? :) I love Barilla actually.

And happy 2nd blog birthday! It feels like a landmark, doesn’t it? Many more blogging years to go…
