What's the surprise? It could be any number of things, but probably the MOST surprising is that Corrie is actually blogging. Very sorry!

Another surprise is from Arizona where my family and I spent Christmas. My aunt and uncle moved out west a couple years ago and invited us to spend our first Christmas in the dessert. (Well, first as far as I know). They really do live in a town near Phoenix called Surprise. In typical Allora, Aspetta style, the joke may only be funny to select few:

"So where do you live?"
"No, really, I don't want to be surprised. Where do you live?"
"No! I have to buy a plane ticket. Where do you live?"

Please note, Surprise is not a city MADE of cheese...but it is made up of several surprises. We sat outside on Christmas day and ended up feeling too warm. That was a surprise. We sang Silent Night with the dessert sun still high and hot. That was surprising. We went on a Pink Jeep tour through the steep red rocks of Sedona. Surprise! Guess where Corrie ended up?

Hanging out in Surprise was fun. It was good to be a part of my aunt and uncle's experience as their new city becomes home and even better to be with family for the holidays. Tante grazie, Zia Carol ed Zio Joe, for a merry dessert Christmas!

What's not so much a surprise? Jackie's recently published article! It's wonderful, Bella!
