Long time no see… I can’t believe it’s been two months since I last posted, and those months have been really hectic with a trip to Italy, Easter celebration, my birthday, work…. But let’s start with the house. The house with a capital H, a lovely house that we never thought we would buy. We just went there to look at it, because you have to start somewhere when planning to buy a house. It was too expensive but gorgeous in every way and we fell in love. We put in a bid and a few days later, when in Rome with my mother, F called me and told me the happy news: “We’re house owners!” After coming home from Rome, which was a gift from us to my mother for her 60th birthday, we immediately started preparing our apartment so we could sell it. No renovations were needed, only homestyling and packing half of the apartment in boxes, that are now at a storage center, so it would look as airy and lovely as it actually is. Now our super central apartment is sold and in one month we’re moving to a place with beautiful nature and where we have a five minute walk to the beach. I’m really enthusiastic about it as I’ve never lived in a house; I’m a true city girl. But I’ve already planted tomato and watermelon (!) seeds and every evening before going to sleep I look at the pictures of the house and the garden.
But for now let’s focus on food. These photos were taken in Rome when me and my mother were at Giolitti , one of my favourite ice cream bars in Rome. However we were a bit unlucky and seemed to have ordered more cream than ice cream this time…. But since we ate ice cream 3 times a day during our stay, it wasn’t really any catastrophy!
