It was a mighty fine trip, that’s about as plain and simple as I can put it.  Venice– a beautiful place, but they sure gouge you every chance they get, which gets old quick.  What can you say, it’s a tourist trap. Then a wonderful visit to the Monti mill, dinner with Bruno and his fine, gracious people.  Scouring the shops and alleyways for more Italian influence.  Later– Milano Unica.  Great fabric and fashion inspiration, running into a couple familiar faces, making many new & fruitful connections.

Most of all, it’s nice to be home.  Home with the family I haven’t seen enough of this summer.  It makes you appreciate those you love, and want to treat them extra well.
