Happy Monday! Monday is intense cleaning day here in our Italian abode. Before I get my hands dirty, I wanted to write a quick post from the weekend. Saturday we went to Verona to look at furniture for the house and ended up getting our Valentine's Day gift to ourselves- a coat hanger and a little table for the living room (will photograph for a later post). Valentine's Day, as cheesy as it is, will always hold a special place in our hearts; the photograph above is from February 14th on my first visit to Italy and five years later on the same day, we got engaged. Massi cooked his usual annual Valentine's meal, one of my favorite pasta dishes- Spaghetti allo Scoglio. It was his first re-attempt at cooking since coming home to Italy six months ago and we both agreed he lost his culinary touch just like he's losing some English and says things like 'Puffo is pulling out the wires of the duvet cover' (=Puffo is pulling out the threads of the duvet cover). I think one of the best things about being a mixed couple is that we get to have all these hilarious language slip-up moments together in English and Italian. It's a good lesson in learning to laugh at yourself.
