An update per Gravagna

Questo per la Sara e la Fede. . .

Siamo arrivati in gli Estati Uniti. Le bimbe sonno state bravissime sulla volle e tutto bene. Noi sentiamo la mancaza tantissima per tutti in Gravagna. Baci per Teresa, Carla, Maria Pia, Lina, Fede, Sara, Sivia, Cesarina, Mafalda, e certamente, Giuseppe. Ogni tanto adesso provero fare il post in Italiano, ma sta pantienza con la gramattica

Well if anyone still follows this blog the posts should be getting more frequent once we fly back and go back to the land of fast internet and fast food (barf). Oh by the way that's early next week.

The fall has been so beautiful here and I am getting more and more teary eyed the closer we get to leaving. This place is the most incredible little time capsule of all things Catholic. The people here are so kinds and if I had the winter I'd be speaking in dialect and wearing rubbers and a scarf in my hair by the end of it (oh wait, I already do that. . . )

We have begun to light the stufa and Ben has now learned to roast chestnuts on top of the wood stove instead of in the oven. They call them "le mundine" and Ben eats them in the evenings, like a true Gravagnot.

I am enjoying every last day here to the fullest.

Oh and I will be updating my favorite blogs list soon. I MUST add Flighty girl and Clare Corner, because they are both mad sweet craftin' mamas.
