Tales of the Heart: We're going to ITALY!
I had a major stroke of good luck last week. You may have seen my post about the wedding-related winnings I received from Style Me Pretty. I thought it was pretty much the coolest prize in the world. And it is. I didn’t think it could get any better – until Thursday rolled around and I saw in my inbox an email from the PR people for Dr. Oetker’s Ristorante Pizza. I clicked on it frantically. Why? Because a few months ago I entered Funk and I in a Tales of the Heart contest sponsored by the pizza people to win a trip for two to Italy. All you had to do was submit your love story and a picture of you and a loved one enjoying some Ristorante Pizza. Easy peasy for Funk and I who love to have fun with our food. I sent in my entry right away. You can read our story and see our silly picture here.
I truly, honestly believed I’d win the trip. I just had that feeling. I even asked Funk to renew his passport ASAP because we would be going to Italy soon, and when we were with friends a few weeks ago, I told them I had a hunch Italy was on our upcoming agenda.
And you know what? I was right. We won! I called Funk, voice shaking to say, “We won. We won!” Poor Funk has no idea what we’ve won because I enter us in contests practically daily. “We’re going to ITALY!” I squealed. I chatted with the nice PR people from Dr. Oetker’s who confirmed this amazing prize and let me know we have a 4 night 5 day vacation to any part of Italy we’d like! We still can’t believe it’s true and I’m so appreciative of this amazing prize. We’ll be heading to Italy before the end of the year and just need to pick our location. Tuscany is top on the list and I’d love to take a cooking class and visit a winery.
Travelers – I need your help! Where should we go? What should we do? Tips welcome!
Oh, and yes after all this fantastic luck, I did play the lottery. No wins there!
