Ciao, Baby

What's next for In Search of Gelato? I've thought about keeping In Search of Gelato going, just changing the focus. In the end, I decided to keep In Search of Gelato as a blog of our time in Italy. The first word Nora learned to say was Ciao, fitting for our Italian bimba, although it came out as "Wow," and she quit saying it before we ever realized what she was actually saying. I'd planned to start up a new blog, titled "Ciao, Baby." Of course, that name is taken. After playing around with other names and ideas, I have decided that we will continue with a blog. However, I'm going to have our own website rather than a blogspot address. I will put up a notice here once that is set up and running. I suppose anything I do will be more of the Mommy blog genre, since my time now is spent taking care of Nora  the Toddler rather than planning jaunts around Europe. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you so much for traveling along with us, through Italy and beyond!

  1. Well done, Stephanie! Thank you for taking us on your journey. I have no doubt that wherever you point your "lens" will keep us amused and informed. Ciao!

  2. No, not the end. I want to thank you for sharing your experiences of your time in Italy. As our family prepares for our move to Italy I feel blessed to have your view of what is in store. Both good and bad. Thanks for all of your European advice. Ciao! Vonda

  3. I've been a silent reader for quite sometime. Thanks for sharing your Italy experiences. Nora is so cute! Waiting for your new blog :)

  4. Hey Stephanie,

    My name is Joe Pinzone and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Italy and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at joepinzone@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
