How I spent my summer vacation “vacanza” by
Laura Fair…I played, I worked, I played,
I worked, I worked. That’s about it in a nutshell…here is the real story…
No trip to the States is complete without a stop at my favorite bargain shopping stores…how I begin every visit. I was then whisked off to beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina and Lady’s Island for the 4th of July with my family. If you have never been there, please try to go at some point in your life. Not that I want to up their tourism…so keep it a little quiet, but it is one of the most charming cities and the view…mi piace da morire! See for yourself…

Then the real work began at the Atlanta Show. As I mentioned, Golden Rabbit debuted new collections and I had SO MANY good meetings. Things I cannot wait to share with you…but we will have to put them off until the powers that be let me reveal everything. It was also my time to see “show friends” who are so great and supportive. Allow me to indulge a few…Tracy, Gerald, Kathleen, Margaret, Peggy & Kathy…loved seeing all of you!

I wrapped up the show and headed straight out of town to Charleston, South Carolina and then the Isle of Palms. (Believe me, I know how lucky I am…I don’t take these trips for granted!) I was able to reconnect with old friends…meet some new ones…and recharge…it was fantastic and perfect.

Then off again to Charlotte, North Carolina for another client meeting…to be out in the open very soon…you are going to love it! I then traveled to Augusta, Georgia for a little visit with my second favorite puppy, Shadow, and more work and play with my father and sister.

Then finally back to Atlanta for a marathon session of packing and more packing…always difficult. This time was a little different because my sister and brother-in-law were moving to another house…wishing them love and happiness in their new home!!

Whew…no wonder I was exhausted and slept for days upon my return to Italy. Actually, I should say I slept during the days and stayed awake for many nights…so out of whack! Back to reality…and the studio!
