Shall I remind you that spring has sprung, and summer time is almost here? Now that the warm months are getting closer, and some of us travel a lot during the summer, it is the perfect time for me to be more casual.

We don’t have to worry about those heavy, long coats hiding our pretty clothing. We can hang our lovely winter jackets in the closet, and say arrivederci/goodbye to them until next year. One of my favorite things about spring is that we can throw on a cute casual dress without much effort and call it a day.

Every spring, I get this urge to clean my closet. I like to remove things that I have not worn in awhile. If you do not wear it, remove it!
If you do clean your closet for spring, please take the time to give all your old clothing items to Goodwill or a charity of your choice. There are so many people who are in need. 

Finally, this week, try to fit some “me” time into your schedule. We get so busy taking care of our families that we get lost, feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. You can prevent that from happening. Also, don’t forget to do your Yoga. It can bring us peace in a stressful world. 🙌

Namaste,

Nunzia

Buon Befana! Today, in Italy and many parts of Europe, people are celebrating the Epiphany holiday. Growing up in Italy, getting ready for bed was the last thing on Earth we as children wanted to do. However, on Epiphany Eve, there was something magical about going to bed. I remember feeling very happy and excited. The day before, however, was never-ending. How can a 24-hour day feel like an eternity?

There was something magical in our house. Mom and Dad knew it. They watched us closely. When bedtime finally arrived, it was tradition for parents to hang stockings by the fireplace. That way, the Befana would fill them up with candy. If the children were naughty, they would get coal instead.
Did I ever receive coal? Yes, but it was the type made out of candy. So, it actually tasted very sweet.
I will never forget waking up in the morning with dolls and trains waiting for me. I wonder why I liked trains so much?

It was a fun time. Now, many, many years later, this day is still very special to me. I will always cherish these beautiful memories.

XO,

Nunzia
