Off to Italy with Baby on Board!

Yes, it has been a big year for The Gypsy household.  Tomorrow I'll be blogging about my Project365, but there's one photo I had to leave out of the project.  This one:

There is a baby Gypsy coming along this summer, and that will mean all kinds of changes in 2011 for our household.  It is the best reason of all, but I have had to cancel a few trips including one to Rome in May (which almost made this really hormonal woman hysterical).  But this promises to be one globe-trotting baby, and I'm not too worried about this slight delay in my schedule.  In fact, we already have his/her first trip to Italy planned.  We'll be getting a passport right away!

I am not going to transform myself into a Mommy Blogger.  There are lots of people out there like DeliciousBaby, Mother of All Trips, and Travels with Children who do that kind of thing beautifully.  I'll continue to write about my passions: art, travel, and books -- and their intersections, too.  And I will continue to travel with groups, advise groups on travel, and offer my own trips, too.

However, I am headed to Italy this week and am in my second trimester.  I'll let you know how that changes my style, if at all.

So, for now, I'm off!  More for you all from Italia!

I didn't think you were totally "out" yet! You threw me with the question the other day. ;-) Well if you ever need any tips on traveling with a baby, I've got a blog, too. Just kidding. No, seriously, I do. Best of luck with your pregnant travels and all the great adventures ahead!
