Hi, friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!

 

 

The holiday season is a perfect time for us to step back from our crazy-busy, day-to-day lives and reflect on our blessings. This is also a time of year to celebrate long-lived traditions, and introduce new ones, like I’m planning to do.

 

 

This year, I will implement a few changes in our Christmas Eve dinner. I will share more details on that on my next blog post.

During this beautiful and magical season, enjoy your time with your family and friends. Whether your idea of relaxation is maybe reading a good book, playing Nintendo DS games like I do, or simply getting out and enjoying a brisk walk, remember: whatever you do, make it relaxing and fun. Be present.

Create new memories and traditions this holiday season. I will be sharing mine on the blog! Until then, here are some some of our favorite dishes I have been preparing for my family this month.

Hello, friends!

It has been awhile since my last blog post. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My husband, Patrick, and I decided not to cook the traditional turkey this year, and instead opted for a ham with fresh green beans, bacon, mashed potatoes, and a salad. Of course, the pumpkin pie was amazing.  I just can’t believe that another holiday season is here.

How many of you did Black Friday shopping?  I had a terrific time shopping online. From comforters to makeup, I had a great time. I’m not ready to shop in a crowd. I’m still trying to regain my balance after the surgery.

I would like to extend a big “thank you” to my beautiful Jennifer for adding me to a private group on Facebook for writers. This group is called “The Binders”.  I’m honored and thrilled to be a part of a great community of writers.

Since my surgery, I have been super busy with PT. During my free time, I’m trying to finish my new article, which I will share more details about later.  Rehabilitation is going well. I am now able to bend my knee without being reminded by my family members and physical therapist to do so.  The leg is still stiff, and it will take some time to be limber again.

We did a photo shoot the other day for the blog. As you can see, I’m wearing a casual Juventus shirt and sweat pants. I’m hoping to wear all my pretty boots by the holidays. My entire outfit is available on the Juventus store online. Also, yesterday I made my favorite seafood pasta!

Today, I made this delicious peach pie! Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend! XoXo

Hello, ladies! Summer is ending! Get out there, get some sunshine, and enjoy the beautiful weather.

As you noticed from my pictures, I’m sporting a new, shorter look. It is always exciting when Meghan works her magic on my hair. We chopped a few inches off, because lately my hair has not been in the best condition. While I was in Italy this past summer, I went to see my sister’s hairdresser, and it was not a positive experience. Even though we had an appointment, I ended up waiting for a long time with chemicals in my hair. I got a lot of dead ends as a result. Today, Meghan could remove most of them.

Anyway, this past weekend, my husband Patrick and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Our actual anniversary was on Friday, September 15, but we are still celebrating. It always feels like I just married him last year.

In the meantime, the UPS guy has been busy, because I received my first present last week. My hubby bought me a new laptop. It is super light, and I love it. It is as light as an iPad! Can you believe that? It is perfect for me, because my other laptop was quite heavy, and the weight was causing some knee pain. My second present was some Giorgio Armani foundation. I will share a review with all of you. Until then, be kind to one another. xoxo

 

 

I just made this delicious Tapioca pudding!

 

Ciao amiche, spero stiate trascorrendo un bellissimo sabato. Stamattina ho iniziato bene la giornata, con una colazione sana e nutriente. Ecco le mie preferite: le fragole, sono sempre uno dei frutti di stagione che preferisco per colazione. Oltre ad essere bellissime, sono anche ricche di vitamina C. 🍓🍓🍓🍓

Non sentitevi in colpa se mangiate spesso le questo tipo di frutta. Le fragole, sono piene di antiossidanti, vitamine, fibre, e sali minerali.

Adesso cambio argomento! Non ho molto tempo, perche’ ci siamo quasi! Sta per giocare la mia Juve. Mancano solo alcuni minuti. Mi sento un po’ tesa, perche’ oggi in porta si trovera’ Neto. Allora, Juventini, tutti insieme un solo grido: FORZA JUVE!
