We ate pasta for Thanksgiving dinner -- in Rome! We spent the day touring the Vatican -- breathtaking art every step of the way. The Sistine Chapel -- heart stopping. St. Peter's -- so over the top I was stunned into silence. My first sighting of the Coliseum brought tears to my eyes. Too many superlatives? I can't find enough . . . I am incredibly grateful to be here with my family and friends, even though my feet hurt.
