And the survey says…

One of the things we find ourselves doing a lot is asking one another things like, “So, what do you miss the most?”  “What has been your favorite new food?”  Things like that.

    I enjoyed your responses. Elizabeth, I love nutella too. Just found a banana bread recipe with it in so I had an excuse to buy it. Enjoy Rome – another fabulous city.

    I enjoyed all of the questions and the answers. I wonder if everyone will be ready to head home in July or if it will be hard to leave the new friends.

We love hearing from you! Give us a shout or a "like" if this post made you smile.
