Thanks for coming.
Did you have any problems finding the place?
Well, sadly my house is still under construction, but My Bella Vita has moved. (Yes…she has a life of her own!) And, boy was it an experience. When you start with an impatient personality and toss in a bit of html code, disaster will surely strike!
But, I was lucky. My Calabrian comrade, and somewhat recent blog-mover, Michelle of Bleeding Espresso, held my hand and walked me through the process…almost painlessly. Grazie mille, Michelle!
And, now for the Blog Warming Party!
To celebrate, we are inviting all of you to update your links and feeds.
Ain’t that nice?
But, you are also invited to browse around a bit. Check out the links at the top of the page, and along the sidebars. As with all new homes, MBV and I are still getting settled. There will undoubtedly be a kink here and there, and I hope you’ll tell me if you see one. There’s even a new Contact Page, so you can reach me directly from the blog!
Each week I’ll post new travel deals, and I am currently working on articles, tips, and tidbits to share with you on that page, as well as Calabrian-specific information, available here.
We even have new Il Cedro merchandise, available at Il Cedro Shop.
In an attempt to bribe you To thank you for coming over, updating your links and feeds, and for being so darn nice, I’m gonna host a giveaway!
Leave a comment, either telling me you updated your links or feeds, or saying how comfortable you feel at our new place, and you’ll be entered. You can also enter by using the contact form, or by telling me about a kink you find along the way. Heck. Do all four and you’ll be entered four times!
And, you can choose the prize. One lucky winner will have his or her choice of
– Any single item from Il Cedro Shop
– A single room (one night) at Il Cedro Bed and Breakfast
– A “Grazie Mille” package, complete with Calabrian and Italian goodies, mailed directly to your door
The contest will be open through Sunday, April 20, and the winner will be announced the following day.
So, once again. Welcome to the new, and improved, My Bella Vita. I hope you’ll stay awhile!
