If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know, but I forgot to share this lovely bit of news of my blog...
We're going to ITALY next month!!
Yes, Italy! The place I've always dreamed of going! So when we saw an opportunity to go for work, we jumped at the chance. I mean we aren't dumb! In my husbands eyes, this is the perfect vacation- work and play. Have I mentioned that he is a workaholic? Well he is, this man works 16 hours a day and NEVER takes a day off. Even on our honeymoon he brought his lap top so he could work a few hours a day. Yes, on our honeymoon! It drives me crazy sometimes because I know everyone needs a break now and then, but I also am learning that that's the entrepreneur way. I mean, not everyone is cut out to own their own business, it really takes a certain kind of person. I never wanted to own my own business ironically enough, actually I am the complete opposite. I like to do my job, put in my 8, then leave. When your a business owner, there is NONE of that! There is no "home life" and "work life"... it all blends together. It's always there, always on your mind, you live it, you breath it, its your life!
So back to Italy.
Because its for work we can write it off which is even better! It turns out that the the largest European expo in our field is in Northern Italy in September. We are going for 8 nights, 7 days and will only have to work 3 of those days.We are still planning our activities, researching hotels, and trying to plan out our trip to maximize our time there. It's all so exciting!
Then there is the children.
motherhood the second time around. You do things like that. I know they will be in good hands with grandma, and I am glad they will be staying at home with their comforts. We are also planning on bringing our web cam so we can video chat while we are away. As much as I will miss them (and man I will miss them a lot) there is no way I was letting this opportunity pass me by!
So if any of you have been to Italy, or have any tips or tricks of navigating through Italy, or traveling abroad- please share! This is my first time to Europe. Oh and PS- lets talk about how gangster Miss M looks in this picture...too funny! Love it!
