giving thanks…..

2 Dec

there’s always so much to be thankful for,

but i’m going to keep this simple.

…..family…..

those that are blood

and those that are not,

those who are near or far,

that we see everyday or once a year.

for the one that we have started

 that has given me the gift of becoming a mother.

….family…..

i hope that you all enjoyed a day of thanks

with the ones you love

and with whom you call family.

festive

us

^^^ the baby slept all the way up till the husby had to work

…so sad, i know…

the bird

the spread

inseparable

two thanksgivings are better than one……

24 Nov

while most of you are preparing for that one day a year where you eat turkey with all the fixin’s,

bake pies and while setting that endlessly long dinner table, i was preparing for that day twice!

ahhhhh, thanksgiving! who doesn’t love it?! and even better christmas follows!!!

so this year the husby and i celebrated the holiday, tuesday night with some of giuseppe’s family, and thursday with mine.

my contribution to both celebrations was of coarse dessert!!

i made, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies….yum!

i have so much to be thankful for this year, and i’m so happy that we get this holiday every year to remind us of how fortunate we are.

here’s so pictures of both of our thankful days!

hope everyone had a memorable thanksgiving with your family and friends!

   

thankful…..

15 Nov

so i’m sure you all have seen this november thankful a day thing.

well i love the idea but as life would have, i’m a little behind on starting it.

so i thought, with thanksgiving being only  a week away,(whaaaaatttt???)

what the heck, why not start today, and sum up the month with just a few of the things i am most thankful for.

so here it goes:

  1. my husband aka. husby, who i love to the moon and back, without him my life would be dull, lonesome, and so incomplete
  2. my family, for their love and support and who provide just the right amount of chaos in my life that i couldn’t be without
  3. my friends, (you know who you are) to laugh with, shop with, cry with, drink with, relax with, dance with, dine with and be myself with
  4. my pups, who have turned me into a dog person (never thought that would happen) and are the best when you need a little snuggle time
  5. italy and all my in-laws there, first to italy for delivering me my husby, and to the family for excepting me and taking me into their’s like i was one of their own, even with these thousands of miles between us.
  6. my life, i feel so fortunate to have the life i have and the people who are in it. i wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world
  7. my career, not many people get to go to a job that they love every day and that’s exactly what i get to do
  8. and last but not least…… you…… i love that i get to share our life’s little adventures, and that you guys care enough to read it. this blogging experience has been such an awesome outlet for me and with out you guys, it wouldn’t exist, sooooo i think it’s here to stay! thank you my blog loving friends!

xoxo, gina
