Just popping in to give a huge thanks [and even bigger virtual hug] to Kelly for enthusiastically stepping in. She did a primo job keeping the spirit of ITL alive and well, and I hope you've enjoyed the blog's fresh voice for the past two weeks. Kel, you're welcome back anytime!
I'm currently in Udaipur preparing to cross a major event off my Bucket List. Religious festivals in India see the largest single gatherings of people anywhere on the planet, and for years I've dreamed of being smack dab in the middle of Holi. It is likely to be my most chaotic experience to date, but I can't wait to watch my clothes and skin morph into technicolor dream coats. Holi celebrates spring, so I hope things are beginning to warm up and blossom for everyone — especially after Kelly's snow-capped photos yesterday!
