Happy Holidays!


Waiting for Santa...

"Embrace spirituality.

Regardless of your religious (or non-religious) preference, 

there is much more to this world than the things we see. 
Embrace spirituality this holiday season by championing love, hope, forgiveness, and grace. Rather than losing yourself in the hustle and bustle, find intentionality in remembering the heart of Christmas and celebrating the soul of everything good."
JOSHUA BECKER



See you,
Marina

    1. Thank you John! We decided to treat Santa with zaletti and biscotti di limone e semolino. And in case Santa is milk intolerant, we had him a glass of Limoncello (couldn't find any grappa in our parts). :)

    1. Thank you, Alena! Our friendship is the best gift! Here is a quote for you:
      "Somehow not only for Christmas
      But all the long year through,
      The joy that you give to others
      Is the joy that comes back to you".

      We had snow today, how cool is that?! :)
