Viva Italia

We are leaving tomorrow for Italy! I can’t believe it I am so excited. My oldest daughter and I travel very well together, in fact she has turned into my best friend. What a blessing to have a great relationship with her.

Her grandmother came into town today from Maryland and her cousins and father came over for dinner. Bella loves to cook she uses all fresh ingredients. The prosciutto  is from Italy she sliced it and put it on the pizza.

My children are Italian on their father’s side. Grandma’s parents were first generation Italian.

It is a great sense of pride for my children and their father to be Italian. I do love the culture didn’t love being married to him but love my kids dearly. Isabella made homemade pizza tonight for our going away party. I will be blogging as much as I can from Italy!!Blusie waiting for his Pizza. He’s not Italian but he still loooooves pizza!

From our home to yours
