a trip to the beach

clearly this blog is a little out of order. but thats okay, we all know its not that interesting anyway. 
i merely put stuff here for my own amusement so if anyone is reading this, my heart goes out to ya.
anyway, after i landed in the states we flew down to florida, two days later, for a mini vacation (yes, i did just get off of a four month vacation).

we spent some time on the beach among all of the "old-folk" that tend to congregate there around this time of year. 

we also got to make a pit stop at harry potter world! unfortunately they have a way of tricking you and making you buy the "park-to-park" pass if you want to see both parts of HP. but we got our butterbeer and we were content with that,

p.s. we are planning a trip to seattle this summer! if anyone out there has any recomendations on where to stay/eat/see or do post in the comments below!

a video about ravioli

as part of my christmas present we made homemade ravioli together. obviously the food in italy was out of this world so it was nice to bring some of that back to america. we have always enjoyed cooking together but neither of us had ever made pasta from scratch. we followed this recipe and it was delish. 

and here is a little video:

some fringe, a video, and an update..

why hello there. its been awhile. i really wanted to keep this blog running [post italy] but clearly that didn't happen. lucky for you (or maybe not) i have decided to put in my wildest effort to make a blog post happen right now. so this is what has been happening around here lately..

1) i departed italy with a sad heart and arrived in america to my LOVE and terrible food (sorry america)

2) we went to florida! (more on this later. maybe)

3) in an effort to keep thing interesting, i chopped my hair and got some fringe action happening around the five-head area. 

4) christmas happened! that was fun. 

5) we (bae and i) (bae? sorry world) made homemade goat cheese and spinach ravioli, italian style. it was delicious. we were also really fancy and go-pro'd it (that's a word i swear) so maybe you'll see a little video in the near future. 

for now, here is a little video of my christmas if you would like to see. 

happy new year!

my parents are here!
it has been so fun showing them around and i am so grateful to have them here. they got here around noon on saturday and i knew it was them when i heard suitcases being rolled down the street and heard my mom say "well i guess this is it!" outside my window. i showed them around florence and we got panini's from pinos for lunch. they were pretty tired so i let them rest for a few minutes before venturing out to apperitivo and gelato. 

on sunday we got up and took the train to venice! we spent the day wandering around the streets and canals and getting lost, obviously. we had pizza for dinner at rossopomodoro. it was amazing. i had a spinach, sausage, and cheese pizza. we were too full to have dinner! 


we watched a beautiful sunset over the grand canal 
just look at that thing!
