  1. Congrats on your award! I love that Italy view! That’s good that you can drink ice cold water. I love it on a hot day too but somehow the ice makes me cough a lot so I drink infused water with mint leaves and cucumber. I also like to add strawberries and mango into my water and then leave it in the refrigerator to let it get cold 🙂 Thanks for nominating me to the award 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 Aww…I’m sorry to hear about ice making you cough, but I’m glad you found creative ways to drink it. I’ve never tried mint leaves and cucumber or strawberries and mango, but I love all those flavors, lol.

      You’re welcome. 🙂

  2. Oh, thank you for the nod! But how could you give up chocolate? I feel your pain, but at least you are back able to have some! I forgot you lived in Italy… I wonder if I’ll be anywhere near you while I’m visiting. I’ll be in Rome, Florence, Ravello, and Siena from 5/19 thru 6/2.

    1. You’re welcome! I know, it was hard, especially when one of my friends requested these little Oreo treats I make for her son’s birthday party. It was soooo hard not to snack on Oreos or M&Ms while making the treats, but I did it!

      Yup, we’re still here. 🙂 We live in Turin (northern Italy), but we are going to be in the Rome (and potentially Florence) area at some point during the last week of May/first week in June. We’re still finalizing the plans. 🙂

    1. It was my pleasure. 🙂 The picture with Zoey is from a trip we took while being here, not necessarily our backyard, but the Italian Alps are just about 1.5-2 hours away! My husband had a work opportunity and after much discussion, we decided it was the best time to move for a few years (just married, at the time, and no kids yet – just a doggy 🙂 ).
