Thank you-Grazie

Domani e' il mio compleanno ed ogni anno ho lo stesso pensiero....dovrei festeggiare la Mamma. Lei e' la donna che si e' sacrificata per me.....e la mamma che mi ha lasciato scegliere di andare a vivere dall'altra parte del mondo!
Mamma, ti voglio bene!


Tomorrow is my birthday and every year I get the same feeling...that I should be celebrating my Mamma. She is the one that almost died while giving birth to me.....
She is the one that gave me away not only to the most wonderful man but also letting me move away to the other side of the world! 
 Mamma, I love you!

**********************
Yesterday Christie and I spent the day with our friend Lisa Loria. A much needed relaxing day....Lisa is an extraordinary artist and her home is full of inspirations. As soon as I walked into her home I was inspired...we talked, shared ideas. We also went to two local thrift stores, fabric stores and then back home were Lisa made us a wonderful lunch and dessert!

I found the perfect quote to summarize our day spent at Lisa's:
"Throw your Heart over the fence, and the rest will follow"

We came home with our hearts full of friendship, inspirations and gifts. Roses from her garden, a special glass cup, a bottle of vino for me and champagne for Christie. While there Christie surprised me with my b-day gift...this beautiful jar. I wanted this jar since the last sale....I love it!

Thank you Principessa & my SIL!




Ciao for now

Rita

  5. A Happy Birthday to such a wonderful friend. xo
    I agree, I think birthdays should celebrate the Mama's, too. I decided last year that on the kids birthdays, I would buy myself a little something for accomplishing an amazing feat. I hope you have a wonderful day.
