Let’s Chat Retirement Visions on Twitter on 10/16

Join Mumtastic, some friends, and me for a twitter party as we chat about our dreams of retirement, as it is never too soon, mamas! We’re giving away $400 in Visa gift cards! Details below.

I love chatting with my hijo Nacho about our dreams of retiring to Italy, and we have gotten more serious about putting the dream down…pen to paper (or shall I say coloured markers to paper?).



We occasionally chat about how Italy is the shape of a boot, and how he will one day visit the Tower of Pisa. As Nacho took notes, these were the themes that kept popping up…along with eating pasta in Venice, beautiful sunsets, and sharing the beauty of this country as a family when we retire.


I got in on the drawing action too by illustrating what I saw myself doing in my retired years.

Gondola rides and, of course, pasta, pasta, pasta are on the top of my list of to-dos.
