scenes from an Italian restaurant.

Devouring delicious pasta and decadent desserts under twinkling lights and brooding busts that are reminiscent of Italian originals, while our little guy plays (fittingly) with his Pope-mobile filled with crayons.

Smiles all around. 

p.s. I'm talking about LOVE and WEDDINGS on my sweet friend Cara-Mia's blog today! Go check it out and give her a big CONGRATS...she's off getting married!

This was a fun dinner with a little move in with it. The food is always so good at this Italian Restaurant. Maybe in a few days we will be able to eat there a little more often.

LOVE YOU!!!

I have just been reading you via google reader, and I am no just seeing your new layout for your blog and I LOVE IT!!! You are so beautiful! I didn't know you are catholic. My husband was born and raised devout catholic and I attended two catholic private schools.

PS Italian food is the some of the best food ever invented!

I know this is the second comment...:) I just saw your comment on my last post about being tagged, I'm so glad you'll do it!!

And, so funny about Bebel Gilberto! Same thing, nobody usually knows who she is but she's amazing. So calming and beautiful to listen to. I know exactly which song is August Day Song.

I'm so glad to follow you. I love blogs that feature good ol' family living, pictures, cute children, just real life. Love it. Take great care, and have a great weekend.
