Just a quick email - as I board a plane - to let you know I'll be back soon! In a very generous gesture, my parents have booked me a post Rue Issue Two vacay to Venice!
For those of you who have read this blog for awhile, you know that Italy is my place. It's the place that makes my heart jump and my soul sing.
So you can imagine my excitement! I plan to spend the time with some good bonding with mom and dad, a bit of shopping, a lot of eating, and ceasing as many opportunities to speak with locals as I can!

But before I take off, I wanted to say THANK YOU! All your support and lovely comments about the new issue of Rue mean more to me than you'll ever know!

See you in about a week....ciao!
