A Bit of Venice Trivia
What a crazy weather day here on Long Island! Wind and rain all morning and this afternoon; then the sun just popped out!
I did so many chores this morning!! Dragged myself to the laundromat mid-morning to get my week's worth of laundry cleaned, dried and folded. Then, I stopped at the bagel shop to get some salads for the week for my girls' lunches during the upcoming week.
Now, I'm relaxing with a nice, warm coconut hot chocolate at Starbucks writing my Scoop!
So, as you have probably figured out, Tanya is in Venice, Italy today. One of my absolute favorite cities, filled with bridges and canals, it is one of those places everyone must experience at least once in their lives!!
I took my kiddies to what Lord Byron called "a fairy city of the heart" - better known as Venice back in 2014 and although they were young (10 and 7 years old respectively), they still remember how amazed they were in experiencing this city!
