It’s a gorgeous late summer day here in sunny southern California. The sky is blue, the ocean has an afternoon sparkle and I just got back in the house from a bit of gardening.  I’ve been “sharpening pencils” so to say, not doing chores.  Instead I’ve been skimming through my photos of my trips to Italy and this one caught my eye.  It looks like a similar bright sunny day, but this one warmed by the Tuscan sun… and this one is in Firenze (Florence).  The photo was taken from the Gucci Museum  and pretty much sums up the feeling that day.  Thanks for taking the time to view and read …. and if you like, you can also follow me on Instagram.

Get Me to the Church On Time.

Why did the wedding cake cross the road?  Deep in Chianti in the town of Panzano, we had lunch at Solociccia a restaurant of Dario Cecchini – the Butcher of Tuscany.  He has several restaurants near his famous butcher shop – Anticia Macelleria Cecchini. and the day we visited they were just bursting to the seams with wedding guests.  I looked out the window from our table and noticed that traffic had stopped – so the cake could cross the road, TO GET TO THE RECEPTION ON TIME. Voila!
