Italy, Paris, N. Holywood, Chicago!

Hola Jackie!

I know I have totally been slacking in this whole blog thing and let me begin by apologizing to you and all the followers to this blog for the delay. No excuses in 2010! So, I get your emails and all of them ask or request the same thing: what is up with you? Tell me what is going on with your life. Well here it is:

Trevi Fountain (Rome, Italy)

First, I recently got back from visiting Italy and France. Yums! OMG! It was soooooooooooo nice and I had a fabulous time. My sister was studying abroad in Florence, Italy and wanted to meet her up so that we both could travel within Italy and head up to Paris. We went to Florence, Pisa, Rome, Paris and Venice. I will speak on each place individually and, owe you all pictures, in upcoming entries but my ultimate favorite place would have to be Rome. It was literally the history books coming to life. The pasta in Italy was great (favorite dish: spaghetti with seafood or fruits of the sea) and the crepes and French bread were magnifique in Paris. I was out there close to three weeks and enjoyed all of it even the crazy ATM limits (more to come). Upon my return I went to work for three days and then headed out to North Hollywood, California for my cousins daughter ‘party. She was having a quinceanera and I LOVED it! Just hanging out with family and hitting up the 98 cent store was so much fun.

More recently, I have been so stressed out about…finding a new home. Yes, it is time to renew the lease and unfortunately Diana and I found ourselves needing to find two new roommates but guess what we found one…Yolanda! Well Jackie, I know that there is much I need to inform you about such as men (the flirts at home depot) and career objectives (grad school and beyond) but just wanted to give you a quick glimpse into my life as it is now. I can’t wait to see you again or touch base with you. You are such an inspiration and I hope in my heart of hearts that you are enjoying your adventure as much if not more than what you thought you would. Be safe and Ciao Bella!

  1. Idalia,
    I am so happy to hear that you had a wonderful time in Italy. The food sounds absolutely delicious. I didn't know about you living situation but I am glad that Yolanda will be a roomy. Tell me about Home Depot, sounds interesting. I like your motto for 2010 No Excuses! I still want to see pictures from your trip.
