I am so excited to be heading to Tuscany on Saturday! When Italy beckons, you drop everything and you go.

Davinci Wines has invited me to be one of their 2013 Storytellers. I'm the photographer along for a ride of meeting artisan wine and food makers in Tuscany. They put out a contest in May and I've been selected for the trip, along with 3 other delightful folks. Taking the time to write an essay and submit my photos, and "enter a contest" seemed so hokey -- but it is proof that with a little luck and the want to make travel dreams happen, great opportunities can come your way!
This is my fourth trip to Italy in the past 3 years -- It's as if the exuberant country has a gravitational pull around me and I keep falling into it's delicious orbit. I couldn't be happier -- we've had some hard family news the past few weeks and I intend to seize each day abroad. Andiamo!
After the Davinci trip, I'll be staying in Florence for about 5 days photographing a few stories and soaking in some art, Arno and Prosecco.
