Time To Take A Break

I love this quote from John Lennon and it's another great reminder to enjoy the journey.  I have reached a point where I need to take a break from writing Bella Bella Vita as I have other commitments that require my attention.  It was not an easy decision to make, but it is the right one for now.

I would like to thank everyone for reading my blog over the past 14 months and for all of your kind comments and feedback.   You've made this a wonderful journey for me.  Please stay tuned ... Bella Bella Vita will return!
