molto bellissimo!

for the past two weeks,
i've been taking beginner italian classes
with the most fantastic italian teacher.
claudia makes me feel italian,
and we always have so much fun
in our small class.

last week,
i went out for an italian lunch
with another of the italian classes...
we shared giant bowls of
delicious pasta
(bolognese, pesto, e con panna)
(this is claudia, my lovely teacher)
and had tirimisu to top it off
(with several bottles of wine, of course!)

ever since our lunch on friday,
i've been dreaming of
being back in italia
stolling the streets
and eating fantastic italian food.

here are a few more pictures from
our stays in venice & florence
during our honeymoon last year...

seen peeking out above a florentian street

oh italy,
i miss you so much!


  1. Italian classes sound like fun. Do they teach you accompanying animated hand gestures too? :P

    That Italian food looks amazing! I've been cooking italian food lately, it must be the summery weather!

  2. I had the best teacher for my French 1 and 2 classes!!! Love these photos and way to go on learning Italian! xo

  3. Gorgeous photos! My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Italy! We did Florence, the Cinque Terre, and the Chianti region of Tuscany. It really is a beautiful country. Ever since we returned, I have been wanting to learn Italian! Maybe we can practice with each other? :-)

  4. That Italian class sounds fun. We didn't have that as an elective subject in High school so I went for Spanish classes instead. I love the photos by the way. =)

  5. Love love love this post! For years I have been wanting to learn Italian so that one day I can work abroad! :o) I'm so glad you're enjoying yourself!!!

  6. Now I want to travel and eat Italian food and it isn't even 10 AM yet!

  7. Italian, what a beautiful language. And that food looks delicious!

  8. oh wow, I love Italy :( Vespa, Venice and Pasta.

  9. beautiful photos! I've never been but I'd love to go! with my love for all things pasta, I'm sure I'd fit right in :)

  10. ah italia! i often dream of going back. that food looks so delicious. italian food is my favorite! your hubby definitely looks italian, are you too?

  11. WHOA that food looks amazing!!!

  12. I totally want to go to Venice for our honeymoon! Looks so fabulous!!! I also want to brush up on my Italian. I took it in college, but I don't remember a lick! Maybe if I find an awesome teacher, like you have, I'll have some luck.
