Woo Hoo! We’re back in the blog world. Back in Aroma Cucina land. Back in Italy. Back in Montone!
Where have we been?
Down the rabbit hole that is called IACP. It was a wondrous place, not unlike Alice’s trip down the rabbit hole. After being consumed by producing two years of successful conferences in New York and San Francisco, it was time for a change.
This picture is from the San Francisco conference, and that smiling woman is Denise Vivaldo. One of the truest, funniest, sharpest women around.
Life was full of surprises and adventures, but ultimately, it was time to come back home.
I learned that I really, really, enjoy producing events like the IACP conference. I’m an adrenalin junky; but then again I already knew that. I love the team building, the foxhole buddy work that goes into building an event. It’s a lot like putting on a play, all that work that leads up to the event, then the rush of the event…and then…its time to put on another show!
I also learned that its important to listen to your inner voice, and when its time to move on, get moving.
We’re still doing our thing here in Montone: eating, cooking, sipping wine and cocktails and generally loving life in Italy. If you are reading this, its nice to see you again. If you are new to Aroma Cucina, then benvenuti!
