Well, I haven’t publicly announced it on my blog yet, but we’re expecting and I’m just over 5 months now! We found out we were pregnant in Thailand, and thus began the slightly conflicting advice from doctors compared to back in USA (and India during my sister’s pregnancies) and, of course, once we returned to Italy.
There’s just something about the original, vintage style decor of the modern, fashion capital city of Milan that screams photo op. I love seeing the exquisite architecture of the Duomo, the gorgeous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, cobblestone streets, old school Fiats, brick buildings reflecting so much character, and ancient columns, archways and pillars that are still standing from over the centuries. Not to mention the ever so popular Navigli area complete with cafes, boutiques, second hand shops, restaurants, bars and canals featuring boats, walkways and benches along the water. Milan is just so #hipster #glam
I love Milan in the spring. Having just crossed the year and a half mark of living here, I’ve experienced all four seasons (a couple of them twice now) and spring is absolutely my favorite.
Spring is here and that means time for picnics and sunny outdoor gatherings with friends and family … so here’s a delicious side dish or starter perfect for the occasion!
