Thanks for making my new experiment in blogging this year such a delightful success, and grazie for sharing in my adventures and observations. I'm sure that 2007 will provide us with many more of these "behind the scenes in Rome" moments.
While you're enjoying your eggnog, why not browse some of these holiday treats?
