recordi di Italia.

When I think back to Italy, I have these distant memories. In a cloud almost.

Three weeks ago, I was welcomed to stay with Michael's family in a small Italian village an hour and half east of Rome. We visited nearby towns, were treated to delicious foods and drink, and had laughs with family and friends (in both languages!)

Most memorably, I spent the final weeks with someone dear to Michael and consequently, dear to me.

I joyfully recall all my final moments with Debbie:

My birthday, where she joined her family together with mine to sing and eat cake. She went out of her way to make my family's visit comfortable. She even coordinated Giants vs. Dodgers tickets for my dad and grandma. :)

And then there was our vacation to Italy- a relaxing and distant place with eye-opening landscapes and space to take your time.

Being with family. Treasuring relationships.

She was always smiling.

I took some photos during our trip to Italy. Mostly, I tried to enjoy moments without something in my hands. My collection reflects all the beauty that we experienced during that time. The loving people, the beautiful scenery, the moments of peace.

I hope you enjoy the entire album here.
