bits + pieces from Virginia


Lena, Gil, and I have been having so much fun here in Virginia with our extended family.  Visits to the farmers market, lunches with friends, mornings spent running through the sprinkler, and Mama getting to sleep in… mmhmm, life is good.  We have two more weeks here before we’re reunited with hard-working Elliott in Sicily.  Despite all the fun, we are very eager to be back together as a family again.

In the meantime, here are a few photos from our recent adventures.  The first photo is of my dear friend Abi, who was my college roommate, one of my bridesmaids, I was one of her bridesmaids… and then our babies were born 3 weeks apart!  Isn’t her daughter Lucie the sweetest?!  Those cheeks!  Those ankles!  Gil was nonchalant, but… I know he was just playin’ it cool.


Here those two are, “playing” like 5-month-olds do.


She’ll stay on the toilet forever if Gil is there to talk to &
matchy-matchy with “Auntie Ema.”


Blowing bubbles with Aunt Leslie.


A blurry picture of Gil’s first meal.  He ate about 3 tablespoons!  Hungry, much?  He’s wearing a bib that I wore as a baby.


Sipping cider at the farmers market.


Gil Garber.  Nuff said.


And finally, below is the poor creature that Lena spotted and identified as “Monster.”

    I wonder what Lena would call our dog (mastiff/great dane mix). Perhaps horse? :)

    I can just picture Lena’s response to that dog – it may have been my response as well! :) Glad you’re enjoying your VA time…though we’ll be glad when you’re home in Sicily, too!!
