Nana In Nonna Land

The card from Kenz (above) was on my desk when I got home from Italy. I was gone for about two weeks. Kenz and Brody both have made subtle, wonderful changes. Brody is steady on his feet and Kenz was excited to read to me from a Mary Pope Osborn Chapter book. She had two of them and had read the first one. "I'll let you borrow it, Nana, so you can read it, too," Of course, I loved hearing this.

Italy is beautiful. I kept my eyes open for Nonnas and Bambini. The country has a love of children, a dedication to them. The Nonna pictured above gladly let me photograph her and her granddaughter. What I saw beaming in her eyes was the same joy I have in my heart for my grandchildren! She was shining in the quiet afternoon sun, right after a siesta. Love them siesta's!

I love September. It's always been my January. What a special time! The grape harvest is flouishing across the countryside and I am refreshed and ready for the holdiay months ahead. Nothing like a getting away from it all! It's the wine of life.

Brody gave me the sweetest, cuddliest hug when he first saw me. He's saying a few words, but his favorite is Hi! He is my Italian heartthrob!
