ravello – four seasons

i’m back…wow that was way too long of a hiatus from writing. between work and moving into a new house, things have definitely been hectic. but with all of the craziness, keith and i thought what better way to celebrate moving into our house than with a nice dinner at ravello in the four seasons resort…
