"Venezia Market II" in Progress

Among the many great days spent in Venice this past Spring, one of my favorites was a trek we took to a part of the city that seemed much more like home to Venetians (rather than mobbed with tourists). The seller at the produce stand knew his customers and I loved seeing this duo select what might have become that night's dinner.

Nice lesson, too, on making choices this Mom was teaching. No hurries in selecting strawberries.

I wish all of you a Wonderful Holiday and Happy, Healthy New Year (you will hear from me again before 2015 -- but extra wishes are good).

Thank you to all of you who have made all of 2014 great and allowed me to help you out in putting packages under the tree this December.
