Melanie and I are very much looking forward to a few days away for our anniversary. We leave this morning and fly to Rome. We return on Friday. The children are also excited as they will get to stay here with Melanie’s Aunt Carol. We’re actually staying up in the hills north of Rome, but hope to get into the city on at least one of the days. The main goal is rest rather than sightseeing (the secondary goal is Italian food – always high on my list of priorities). These weeks have been fairly busy for me, so rest will be healthy. For Melanie the need is ten times greater – so I really hope these days can be a significant help for her. We’ll report more when we return!
