Ever since I returned to Sicily last week, I’ve been feeling sad about leaving beautiful fall color behind in Virginia. We love living here, but there’s just nothing like autumn on the East Coast. I think it’s the rich color saturation of everything: leaves, clothes, sky, scarves, apples, boots, lipstick, pumpkins.
Last week my friend Becca mentioned that there is fall color on Mt. Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, which is just a 45-min drive from our house. Quick, gather a crew and let’s go hiking! With two of our closest family friends here, we drove up to the slopes of the volcano, picnics packed and children in tow.
Aren’t the kids cute? Elliott and I got to see what “hiking” will look like in a few years when Lena’s a little older and we add a babe or two to our family! These are some rockstar parents, folks.
