We flung ourselves into the new year with a huge move from our home of 3 years in Sicily, Italy, to Evans, GA! Quite a culture change for sure, but we are absolutely loving the area and being back home near family! Being the crazy people that we are, we went through the home building… Continue reading New year, new house, new hat!
I think I was in denial for a while about having to pick up our life and move again, but here we are! Nothing quite like 5 burly Italian guys and a big moving truck arriving to throw me into reality!

Hello everyone in my wife's blog-o-sphere! Allow me to introduce myself. I am the hubby that she has talked about in previous posts, and I was fortunate enough to be gifted a kid free day to go on a hike and check out the Gambino Winery.

It's basically fall now, right?! While I am not fully on board the 'everything pumpkin spice' train, pumpkin pie is one of my absolute favorites! So why not combine that with my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe?! Exactly, no good reason not to 😉 These cookies come out soft, with a fluffy interior.

Today feels more like a Tuesday. Mainly because yesterday was THE MOST Monday-est Sunday ever. My husband was called into work all day and the kids were... well they were kids. Three destructive whirlwinds of energy! With the hubs called into work I got to try my hand at slow grilling some ribs! Not smoked,… Continue reading Just another Monday
I have developed this habit of buying pillow forms every time we make a trip to IKEA. What can I say, I love throw pillows!
