Hi Casey, I've been reading your blog from the beginning. Your post today "What I Miss About Italy" touched my heart. I loved reading about all your adventures when you were in Italy and hearing about all the people who became your friends. Today reminded me that so many people in Italy are waiting for you to return. You will have a wonderful time there this summer. I'm so excited for you. It's something big to look forward to isn't it? Well I just wanted to finally say hi to you and to let you know you have an audience of readers who love to look at your blog. I am a friend of your grandma's (I think she is just the best on earth!). I will be in Savannah and am looking forward to finally meeting you. My name is Barb Cabot. Have fun everyday. You sure are growing up fast!

What a nice post... Whenever I miss something I try to tell myself that it is better to have had something and then miss it, than to not have had it at all. But it is still hard!! I bet you will have a great time when you go back in the summer. And I am sure your friends in Italy miss you just as much as you miss them.

Dear bcwired and snail (chiocciola),
Thank you for reading my blog. Do you guys have blogs? Where are you from? Yes, my grandma is the best.

When you go to Italy, bcwired, can you go to Fattoria Viticcio and see Camilla?

Gotta go--bye.

Casey, very cool - you are one of the few that knows that chiocciola means snail! It shows that you know A LOT of Italian!

Yes, I do have a blog, it is linked to Slow Travel and the address is:

KZ in TOSCANA (or KC in So. Cal.)


I hope you enjoy it. And I really, really like reading comments.
