There’s an advantage to being your own boss and one of them is the executive decision to watch Oprah, when possible, at 4 p.m. each weekday. That’s my coffee break. Today she presented “Oprah’s Favorite Things” – the episode people wait for all year with her recommendations for gift giving. It got me thinking about my favorite things.
Cinema Paradiso: Hands down my favorite movie of all time. I have the movie poster hanging in my home and the tag line on the poster says it all – An enchanted village. A wonderful friendship. Star-crossed lovers. And the magic of the movies. That’s why I have decided to give the 2-DVD Deluxe Edition of Cinema Paradiso – a $24.95 value – FREE along with all subscriptions, renewals and gift subscriptions this holiday season! My gift to YOU.
Rome: When people hear that I edit a subscription newsletter on Italy and that I have been there some 20 times, they invariably ask me what my favorite place is. Well, it is the Eternal City. I just feel so alive when I’m in Rome and so in tune with human history, thousands of years of it, as well as the joys of everyday life. That’s why this holiday season, I’ve created the Dream of Rome Travel Gift Basket – to celebrate the city I love so much.
