Letters to Juliet


There is a movie I must see this summer. Not only does “Letters to Juliet” hold appeal simply because it is a chick flick but also because Rick and I visited Verona, Italy on our honeymoon to Venice nearly six years ago. We wrote a note on the wall outside the house where Juliet Capulet supposedly lived, the wall of notes featured in the movie! When we visited, they were doing work on the balcony wall so unfortunately, there was some scafolding up, etc (as you can see in the last picture below) but now, judging from movie pictures, it is a beautiful stone wall!

“Rick and Susanna…will love forever.” A simple note but it has and will hold true, forever. Whether we are in Verona, Italy or simply at home in Brooklyn, New York. Whatever the years may bring, we are lovers, partners, best friends.

I wonder where that note is now! Did it blow away or get destroyed by rain? Or might it still be there? I guess we’ll never know but I am thankful we had the opportunity to visit that special little place!
