Day 336 – Sunday…Sunday…Sunday

D

It’s such a beautiful day today in Florence. The morning cake and cappuccino under the morning sun was dreamy. I am not even going to mention the extra hour spent in bed watching cartoons. Ups, I already did. ūüôā After spending two hours in the garden, looking for ladybugs and making flower bracelets with Ephia, everything is calm¬†now. The cat is talking in its sleep, my daughter is having...

Day 331 – Pisa

D

Continuing with memories from our trips around Italy. Today, Pisa. When we first visited Pisa we went more because we heard so much about it. After the first two visits we realized that Pisa was overrated; nothing more to see than the Leaning Tower and that famous, beautiful square. There was though a touching story that D shared with me when we saw the Leaning Tower for the first time. It was...

Day 301 – Sunday…

D

It’s been a weird day today. On any other day, I would describe the events that happened today as bricks to build a perfect day, but not today. We spent the morning at the playground with Ephia, mingling with moms and kids, having coffee and watching her being happy. It was a lot of fun. We had a nice walk, delicious lunch and a friend over for drinks and stories. After Ephia’s¬†long...

Day 294 – Spring is officially here!

D

I love the first day of March. It’s a special day for me ever since I was a kid. In my country, traditionally, everyone gives out a particular gift today, especially to girls. The gift consists in a small brooch, tied with a red and white string that you have to wear the entire¬†month. Ten years ago I started taking off the brooch, but never stopped wearing the string on my wrist. This is...

Day 284 – 6 things I love about Florence

D

I fell in love with Florence long before I became one of its residents. In time my reasons have changed and the touristy ones are long gone and left behind now. So, how does Florence manage to keep us trapped into its spiderwebs? These are six of my reasons: 1. In less than a month you are already experiencing Florentine feelings. Every single expat friend I have talked to has told me how much...

Day 259 – Fun Sunday

D

After a whole week of running around, I decided to skip all the usual Sunday routine and plan something more fun for the three of us to do. So, when the cocka-doodle-doo sang from the other room, I jumped out of bed and brought her into our room for morning cuddles. Ephia usually doesn’t like any changes that get in the way of her routine, but who doesn’t love morning cuddles in the...

Day 154 – Coffee, cake and sunshine

D

Oh, it’s that day of the week again; the day when everything stops in the morning and we just enjoy our company whispering to each other that it’s Sunday. We take Ephia in our bed for another half an hour of cuddling and after a quick breakfast we all go to the best pastry shop to get coffee and cake. I think Ephia loves and recognizes Sundays because of this little ritual we have...

Day 146 – Diary facts

D

10.00 am – Coming out of a never to be remembered dream, I sense something wrong going on in the house, so I open my eyes and listen for a second. Nothing. The house melts in silence and not a sound breaks the stillness. That is weird and has almost never happened before, but I close my eyes and enjoy the mood for a while. My whole body relaxes and somehow floats in the silence around. 11...

Day 135 – For my fellow writers and my favorite bartender

D

As usual, Monday evenings are amazing and I would like to thank my fellow writers for supporting me even if sometimes I think that my stuff is horrible¬†or not that well written. There is nothing harder than putting your soul on a plate for others to judge, but if you don’t take the chance nothing can happen and all you are left with is a circle in which you will maybe¬†be stuck¬†forever in...

Day 105 – Sunday habits

D

I am beginning to love Sunday mornings. It became kind of a family ritual to wake up together, go to our favorite pastry place, grab a cappuccino and a creamy cake and enjoy a conversation about nothing while watching Ephia gobbling her piece of cake. The normal ritual after a morning like that, is making lunch together and then while Ephia has her nap one of us goes out, usually with an artist...
