Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for my children, they start thinking about costumes over the summer and by August we have most likely ordered everything! This year Massi was Elvis, Giacomo was a boy being shot up to the moon by a rocket and Adelia was a strawberry for part of the day…

childhood unplugged october

As most of the country is pulling out sweaters and fall boots we are still enjoying the warm weather and pool on the weekends.  I personally miss the leaves changes and ability to wear fall clothes but with children it is wonderful to be able to be in the pool for a few extra months…

I am always blown away by how much the boys want to help with all aspects of Adelia from playing to feeding to even baths!  For a fun unplugged activity we had loads of fun with Yiayia’s amazing kitchen sink in North Carolina, we threw in some flowers and gave Adelia a milk bath! Take…

let’s talk about chunky knitting

I was first introduced to arm knitting when my dear friend Michelle Gardella told me that I should try it out.  We spent an afternoon FaceTiming and watching a YouTube video on how it was done and in a matter of hours I had made my first blanket!  Over the course of the next year…

Baby girl Adelia and I flew to Italy so that she could meet her 92 year old great-grandmother Adelia! Mostly we just spent the week together in the very apartment that my grandmother met me 37 years ago.  There have been so many memories from my childhood to teens to bringing my fiance to meet…
