Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
My earliest memories are surrounded by family, camping trips, days by the pool and Sunday dinners at my Nonna's house, Italian style.
For those of you who don't know, Sunday Italian dinners are long, loud and filled with endless amounts of food & family. Being Italian myself, I have had countless of these dinners with my family.
As I have spoken about before, my Nonna was a seamstress and one of my favorite things were the aprons she made her grandkids. They were stashed in the downstairs kitchen so that when we helped, we were ready. Or in my case, I'd always have one on, even when eating to not make a total mess!
But one of my favorite memories, and earlier memories would be during these Sunday dinners. My Nonna kept a box of scrap fabric, all different prints and colors. Us grandkids, to entertain ourselves in a house where the television was in Italian and the grown ups were just being boring, would put on a fashion show.
We would dress ourselves up, figuring out new ways to make funky outfits from her scraps and just letting our imaginations run wild. When we were ready to present these outfits to the family, we would prance out with sass and smiles making our own runway show from the living room to the kitchen and back again.
It was obviously well responded!
Eventually we grew out of it,but I'll always remember how happy we were and how much fun we had. I know my Nonna had enjoyed it, laughing at how we used her scrap pieces and loving how we chose to spend our time.
It's moments like these, where I wish I had pictures to look back at. I would have showed them off to you in what I would imagine would be some pretty fantastic scrapbook pages! But thankfully, the memories of those days will never fade and I will keep them close to my heart always.
What are some of your earlier memories that you will hold dear? We'd love to hear them!
