Raise your hand if you have a blog….

Keep your hand up if your husband reads your blog…

Ok, now hold your hand up if your husband reads my blog….

How many of you still have their hands up in the air?

My point exactly!

{you can put your hand down now…}

I don’t think there where many hands up anymore, 
but I can tell you one girl who still had hers high up in the air….

She is not only very kind, her blog with
all the pretty things she shows on it, makes me feel good.
Like having a chocolate with your tea kind of good!

Why she still has her hand in the air you might think? Could it be true?
Well ladies, not only is she married to a handsome Italian man
{I’m just guessing here, 80% of Italian man are gorgeous…},
he also reads my blog.
Better yet, he has it on his blackberry.

Now I almost fell out of my bed when I found out about this,

so you can imagine that I was a little speechless when it really hit me, 
a man is reading my blog!

So, to come back to the Italian word in my title, Attraversiamo.

I heard this in the movie Eat, Pray, Love for the first time, seeing that I don’t speak Italian.
It means “Let’s cross over”. No, I don’t mean that Laura’s husband needs to cross over, I like that it can mean something other than literally crossing the street.
Crossing over to a place where men and women read what I write about,
that’s a pretty good place to be in!

Blogging has brought me so many moments of joy and things to think about,
 new friendships and most of all, a much more positive attitude to my surroundings.
I hope that everyone, women or men, who reads my blog,
will keep doing so with a smile!

So dear DM,
thank your for “crossing over” to my blog,
I feel flattered that you do!

Enjoy the day!

    He sounds like a wonderful man that takes an interest in what his wife loves to do {and personally loves your blog!}. My husband does not read blogs but likes to hear about the bloggers that I talk about. He will ask how they are doing! I love that!

    Hope you are feeling better, Maureen!

    Dear Mauree, I want to thank you for writing this post, I’m really surprised of your surprise! I read most of the blog related to Laura’s one and all her posts and I think you all do a great job!! It’s just another way to know something
    more about my wife and have a look around with women’s eyes…
    I will cross over again…

    Maureen – I’m afraid my hand went down fairly quickly! LOL! I absolutely adore that photo at the top of your blog. Crumbs, to have your blog on an Italian man’s blackberry. Wow, Life can’t get much better than that dear friend!

    That is fantastic. The word attraversiamo made me read this post and I am glad I did. I have just been reading the book Eat, Pray, Love and plan to see the movie once I have finished. G

    Hi Maureen, glad that you’re feeling better. Husband reads my blog and even though he might not be a regular reader of others, I know that he lurks! Occasionally he will make a comment to me about something he has read….doubt he has any on his ipad though!
    Happy weekend to you. x

    Hi Maureen,

    Beautiful and touching post! Isn’t it lovely when men read our blog, I have at least two guys that read mine, one is my husband.
    Thanks for all you share and the happiness and smiles you give when we visit you.

    Happy weekend and I hope that you are recovering well. I wonder did any of your family get this too?

    I’m a man and I read your blog all the time. I’m sure more women do but my friends who are guys also love your blog. Everyone loves your blog Maureen because it’s great.
