This morning over our cereal I made the mistake of telling Lena that we were going on a walk to get granite with Miss Becca, all exciting buzzwords for my little girl. She decided she was done with breakfast right then and there. She ran to get both her shoes and mine.
Since we had awhile to kill before our granite date, Lena and I wandered through our town, enjoying the fresh morning air and taking a few photos of our favorite scenes. Enjoy!
street signs on a corner
& the steep hills of our town
a book helps when the walks get long
& how I love my cinquecenti
parents and grandparents stop for an espresso at the drink kiosk ("chiosco") after dropping their kids off at school
& I wish I could grow a vine like that over our doorway
we love Miss Becca!
& "fragola e limone, per favore" (strawberry and lemon, please)
all gone! (can you see the faded marks of those horrible mosquito bites on her arms... 3 weeks later?)
& "it's okay when the adults talk because Miss Becca lets me play with her phone"
We stopped in our town's pet store on the way home to admire lizards & mice...
... and birds & whole buckets full of tiny little turtles!
We love you, Italy.
