"Salute" To My Ladies

This blog goes out to all my beautiful, strong, independent ladies out there. Lately, I have been reminiscing about my decision to move to Italy and how I have met so many other ladies who have made the big move as well. I was asking myself why is it that women find the need to "find themselves" when men don't? I know so many women who have ventured out of their comfort zone, to explore the world, to follow love, to find love, to challenge themselves. It may sound like a cliche but it is a cliche that shows how strong and independent we can be. That even if we may have a moment of uncertainty, a longing for a dream come true, a question about our identity, or the need to fill a void... we follow our instinct and intuition into the unknown rather than running from it.

This blog goes out to all of my fellow lady expats who have followed their hearts into a foreign country and have been able to stay true to themselves and yet also manage to reinvent themselves only to be stronger, wiser and more passionate. Salute!


  1. Salute to you too Anna! Beautiful post! Love from Florence, xoxoxo

  2. You are right it seems the ladies always follow their hearts to be with the love of their life in Italy, rarely the other way round! . It is snowing here so I am enjoying staying warm and catching up with all my blogging friends.

    1. Yup! We are definitely braver and more open to change. =) Where in Lazio do you live? My husband works in Sabaudia and we always go to Sperlonga and the beaches in that area in the summer. Stay warm in this winter wonderland! =)
