Best of Last

So, after three weeks and a half, it was time to get back to reality. We flew back to London on Friday the 12th of September and on Tuesday the 16th our friends, and Emilia's godparents, Lorenzo and Federica, came to spend eight days with us. This made the transition from holiday to *back to work* less painful. Lory and Fede visit us in London about twice a year and we are always super happy to have them around. Emilia absolutely adores them and they shower her with all the love she needs. We spent eight intense days together; we ate like there was no tomorrow, went to classical concerts, played dressed up, had an aperitivo on the Shard, and walked all around London. Also, Federica is six months pregnant, so this time we added *shopping for the new baby* to the list of favorite activities. Have a look. 

Virginia's Wedding

We got back to London about two weeks ago, but before I tell you all about the crazy fun that we have had in the last couple of weeks, I have one more post to devote to our lovely stay in Italy. I want to tell you and show you some pictures about my friend Virginia's wedding. Virginia and Andrea's wedding was particularly emotional as Virgy walked down the aisle carrying a six-month baby bump! That's right, she is pregnant and they are expecting a baby girl, Elisa, in December. Virgina had the cutest flower girls who all behaved very well. The venue, Casale Marino, was stunning, the food delicious and the flower arrangements beautiful. It was the perfect way to end our stay in my beloved Pescara.

Yellow Party

As I mentioned previously on this blog, on Saturday we threw a little party for Emilia's second birthday here at my parents' house. Since Emilia's favourite colour is yellow, I decided to organise a yellow party where not only all the decor was in yellow but I also asked all the guests to wear something yellow! It was lovely to see my parents' garden all dressed up for the occasion and yellow is such a happy colour! To make things even more special, my mum made beautiful personalised hats and bracelets, all decorated with flowers and ribbons, and she also made a gorgeous number 2 all covered with paper and fabric flowers. Amazing. Both adults and kids loved dressing up although the big hit was by far the vintage swing! I had so much fun planning this party and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying it. 

Happy second birthday my little princess! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
