GIORNO DI RINGRAZIAMENTO

After 4 years of living here, we finally have started the tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving in Italy (one day early as one of our friends was heading back to the states on the real day). Lui and I headed to Monterosso al Mare, where our dear friends, Paula (American) and Angelo (Italian) hosted a lovely dinner filled with all the trimming as we say. The food was “just like Mom’s”, the setting simply festive, and the company absolutely perfect.

A big GRAZIE to the Thanksgiving group!

On the ride home I started coming up with a list (always a list with me, you know) of what I am grateful for. But it’s so long, it would be impossible to write in a blog. So let’s just say, I am thankful I am who I am, with whom I am with, with the life I live and the fact that I have learned to wake up every morning grateful for that day ahead of me. HAPPY TURKEY DAY TO ALL!

How fun! I was here for 2 Turkey Days without the fixins, and that was plenty; cooked my first one last year and I'll be doing another one on Sunday.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Such a good article. Sounds like your Thanksgiving was perfect for all of you. The pics were lovely, the table festive & the turkey a perfect toasty,brown. Guess it was just as good as mine!!
