Renie on the Road…Hallelujah!

We stayed an extra day in Rome so we could go back to the airport and check if we could beat the thousand-to-one odds (literally) that my bag had arrived. We packed our new suitcase with the few things we had purchased to hold us over in hopes that our bags would miraculously appear... Hope may […]
