I write about Italy for a number of reasons. I have loved Italy for a very long time, never thinking that I would ever live here for a significant amount of time. I love exploring and taking pictures of new places that I discover.

All of the pictures below were taken in Pitigliano, Tuscany.
Gelato is one of my favourite things. The whole family enjoys having a cone loaded with tasty flavours.
The first time I went to Pitigliano was a day trip on my first wedding anniversary. My husband and I walked around town pushing the pram carrying our small son and discovering things. Quite by chance we found a shop selling paper goods, and he bought me this lovely address book.
I have taken part in this post today as the ladies from the Italy Roundtable extended an invitation for us to write a post about one of the topics that they have covered during the past year (they celebrate their first anniversary in May).
