Sure, it's simple writing for kids...Just as simple as raising them.

Channeling Sophia Loren
  I've had a three week hiatus from blogging while my family and I had a truly terrific vacation in Italy with my parents, brother and sister. We then flew to Ireland for my brother's wedding at an Irish castle in Waterford, south of Dublin. Needless to say, that means I didn't get much writing done either. But just because I didn't get much down on the computer or on paper, doesn't mean my muse was dormant. My travels around bucolic Tuscany with its vineyards, medieval walled cities set high on hillsides, and the hustle and bustle of busy Florence begs for a travel article to be written. My brother's wedding in an ultra-romantic setting on the grounds of a centuries-old castle could be a piece on romantic weddings or Irish weddings or a focused article on the location—Waterford castle. Inspiration is everywhere!
