Family

Life, Love …and a Little Lipstick

My blog and social media activity basically ceased last week after my Dad suffered a pretty extreme heart attack early Wednesday morning. Only 2% of people survive the type of attack he had – we are all so incredibly lucky he’s still with us today. He’s doing really well and is so, so strong; there’s no doubt in my mind he’s got many active, happy, and healthy years ahead of him; we’re going to make sure of it.

Great Gifts For Mom!

Happy Sunday! ūüôā

Mothers day GG

Unfortunately, there’ll be no¬†WIWTW today [I’m sorry!!] It’s been a crazy week + I’m in the process of moving¬†out of my apartment – so my¬†OOTD’s were reallllly not worth documenting. Instead, I wanted to share¬†a little¬†gift guide for Mom since Mother’s Day is just¬†2 weeks away! ūüôā

The Land Of My People!

Both sides of my family are Italian; my Mother’s¬†family is¬†from Ischia — a small Island off the coast of Naples, and my Father’s family is from Calabria, the Southern most point of the country + just a hop skip and a jump away from Sicily. We’ve been to Ischia before [it’s stunning] + actually took a quick day trip so my Dad could see this time around, but we were really excited to¬†spend a little time in¬†Calabria + explore our roots!

I wanted to share some photos from what was probably the most beautiful leg of this¬†trip. We stayed in Sorrento for 4 days, and while there, we visited Pompeii, Capri, and Amalfi! I tried to choose just a few photos to share from each. ūüôā
