Surviving In Italy Won Stuff! Thank You So Much For All Of Your Love And Support. We Are WINNING!

written by M.E. Evans February 11, 2014

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS! WE WON SOMETHING! I’d like to thank all of you who nominated Surviving In Italy for the Italy Blog Awards 2013. Thanks to all of your votes (and whichever one of you that paid someone in their office a hefty sum) Surviving In Italy WON the Best Single Post for How To Survive Being An Expat. I’m pretty glad that I won for one of my more inspirational posts and not for the one about me losing my hearing after being punched in the ear by a drunk man in Florence. My family wouldn’t have been nearly as proud of that. Anyways, thanks for supporting me here, for sharing me on your FB, personal Blogs, and Twitter accounts and for making this blog a little success and a lot of fun. I love you guys, you’re the best! To say thank you, as recommended by my fellow blogger and friend, Expat Eye, I’ll be giving you all a Valentine’s Day gift that keeps on giving. HINT: It’s not Chlamydia. 

Last but certainly not least: Congratulations fellow bloggers!!! You guys are amazing!

So glad that you won! Since travelling to Italy to search out where my grandparents were raised is on my bucket list, I knew I had to start doing some research. That’s when I came across your blog and got hooked, I love the insanity of your blogs and usually end up laughing out loud to most of them! Keep up the good work!

can’t believe FFF got a shout out from the blog that always makes us laugh at the most inappropriate times – in short, we’re super honored. congrats on the win!

We voted but YOU won, and I am sure we all think you earned it. Anytime someone is able to share some laughter, its a gift for all concerned! Thanks again!

Well done Misty. I’ve been following your blog of late. Although much older than yourself I am aiming to “Live the Good Life” in Tuscany pretty soon so I read your articles with a rye smile on my face as I have been married to an Italian for over 35 years and know their traits oh so well by now.
Congratulations, Paul
