Happy New Year to each and every one of you! We are already a week into 2014, so we wanted to share some of last year’s “stats” in a quick review with a HUGE thank you for 2013….let the drumroll begin!
With over 6,000 views in 2013, there were 55 posts featuring 290 pictures. You made our “best day” on June 23rd, when 136 of you visited “How Do I Always Find Time For An Italian Dinner?….”….thanks!
Thanks for the readers in 95 countries who visited our blog – with rankings as follows for “Most Visits” by country. Thanks for taking time to visit and follow along!

We bloggers have a lot to say to each other, and the most comments came from my friend Diane at Photographs and Recipes, followed by Karen at Back Road Journal. Then came Cheryl at Pasta Princess and More, and Debra, at Bagna di Lucca and Beyond. (Hubby and I had such a fun visit in both Lucca and Florence, Italy with Debra in November…will be sharing that with you soon.) If you haven’t read these ladies’ blogs, be sure to check them out.
Posting this recipe for Spinach Cheese Bake garnered the most comments from the blog world….it is indeed one of our favorite dishes, so it was nice that it was so well received.
One more fun item that came about in 2013 was the start of our newest blog, Come Follow Me To Italy, where we get to share our antics in Italy. Lots of interesting adventures with friends, food, and (of course) some wine.
So now…a toast….Here’s looking forward to 2014, and many thanks to each of you for your support!
Thanks for the shout out…I guess I’m just the chatty one aren’t I? Congratulations on the great stats and terrific, fun blog. Cheers and lets have a super new year shall we?
You are so welcome! I love to be chatty with my blog friends!! Thanks for reading, and look forward to another year of chatting. Take care!
I’m looking forward to another year of great posts, great food, and above all great friends. A special toast to you guys. Keep up the great work.
THanks so much! It’s super great friends like you guys that keep us motivated to share our adventures – and food – and wine! LOL! Happy New Year and hope your travels are going well. Hugs to “Roselle”!
