just a little spoiled
Spending 5 weeks in Italy will spoil a girl. Pretty much from day one fresh fruits and vegetables are delivered to our home from our neighbors and family that own farms outside of town. Peaches and apricots (two of my favorites) are just a few from the many that we receive of crates similar to these pictures. Plums, pears, figs (oh the figs!), watermelon, squash, tomatoes, beans are just a few more of the many that come through our door. All from our dear friends and family looking out for us and sharing in their good crops.
It makes it very hard to come back and start buying our produce again when you know they weren't hand-picked that same day from someone who really cares for our family.
And this girl...honestly, she is the cutest. We lucked out this year with weather in Italy. It was perfect everyday with only a few days that were incredibly hot (like can't go outside between the hours of 11am and 5pm hot like last summer). There were a couple evenings where Olivia just wanted to curl up on our couch with a blanket and some books and I was more than happy to keep up her supply of books for her to "read."
