skyline

this is italy, where my father is from....and it seems fitting to use, since italy is in the finals of the world cup. i called dad seconds after they won against germany (where my mother is from!), and he practically had to take his heart medication, he was so excited! so, this one's for you, dad; go italy!

I predict Italy 1 to 0. Thank you honey. MIchael and I were in Italy when they won the cup the last time. What a trip that was.

A linear feast of delightfulness! What a quirky little salad that would come from this garden. I have never seen such amusing little tomatoes. I love this!
