Welcome August






This is what I love.  My favorite way to spend an summer evening. Dining al fresco, under the stars with fairy lights or lanterns strung above on a tree, with good food and good friends. Dosen't it just look sort of magical?


oh, i added a new song to my playlist. its "falling" by florence + the machine.

Reina you cute thing!! I'm so glad you left some notes for me...I think we should be dining al fresco all summer long in a scenario such as you've splendidly spilled out here.

long live summer!!

Hi Reina! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I'm glad you did because I am falling in love with your's! There is just so much beauty here, especially this gorgeous photo! Oh how I wish to be dining here right now with my closest loved ones. It definitely looks magical!

Living in Italy is incredible, we are in the California just for the summer and then we are returning to Rome in October! I speak Italian a little, but have MUCH to learn...someday I will be fluent. :) Oh and the food in Italy is the best I have ever tasted in my life!

I'm a proud new follower of your's!
