Welp, it’s here. The last post of my Italy trip. Le sigh. 🙁
I’d love for the posts continue forever [Lord knows I have enough photos to do so], but it’s time to wrap them up + get back to reality. Boo. Today, I’m sharing some pictures from the last week of our trip! 🙂
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 am coming off of a month (or so)-long food bender. I don’t know how or why, but I’ve been a total savage. I haven’t made an actual grocery store run in weeks and I’ve spent far too much time going through drive-thru’s and ordering take out. I had a little “get yourself together” moment over the weekend and have spent the last couple of days working to get myself back into a good, healthy zone!
Over Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend and I took a trip to Cape Cod to spend some time with friends. I cannot tell you how relaxing, stress-free, and fun of a weekend it was! I wish I did a better job documenting everything, but I’ll share what I do have 🙂
Still on my eating-well kick, I picked up some health-concious snacks at the gas station while we filled up…
Luckily, we didn’t hit any super crazy traffic, but it was still a long ride. Mike asked me an interesting question and I HAD to get it on camera…

Only fair to share a shot of the guys too 😉
We had another yummy dinner that night- steak tips, creamed spinach, and mac & cheese made from the Boston Market recipe (I think ours turned out better!)
Shenanigans ensued all evening, I wish I could share pictures from our charades game, but this is a group of employed professionals 😉 we’ll keep those memories personal!
The next day we just hung out & enjoyed the day. We took so many pictures, here are a few of my faves 🙂
Of course dinner was delish- more steak tips, grilled chicken, kielbasa, lobster, mac & cheese, spinach. SO yummm!
I was craving ice cream all day, and we ended up taking a trip after dinner 🙂 I splurged for a fancy cone with 2 scoops of Oreo Crunch! …What diet..?
Can you tell how excited I was?! lol
We got back that night, and Antonella decided to put her hair extensions on Zack. He looked so funny! All weekend he would randomly sing as if he were a priest, I got a quick video of him singing with his long hair, it’s hysterical!
