All the summer things I miss and All the summer things I have right here in Italy! Happy4th!
Happy 4th of July!
The holiday that says you are surrounded by summer. Independence from school and work, and from extra layers of clothing (unless you live in Portland, OR and then you are still wearing a hoodie).
All the things I miss:
Friends & Family
Crashing Atlantic ocean waves that sweep you off your feet
Sweet, sweet corn on the cob
Soft Shell Crabs
Little Necks on the half shell, with lots of cocktail sauce
All the things I have close to home:
The sea of choice…Adriatic & Mediterranean, or one of those delicious little islands
Abundant, sweet melons with hand carved prosciutto
Aperitivi hour when a cool drink does its job
Sparkling water, sparkling wine
Platters of lovely grilled fish
Viva the 4th of July!!
Viva la Dolce Vita!!
