Glimpses of summer

Tuoksuvia aamuja ja lempeää etelätuulta. Lintujen viserrystä... ja paljon hyttysiä. :)
Rentouttavaa viikonloppua kaikille!

Again I wish so much I could share with you the light, ephemeral fragrances unexpectedly floating in the air and the gentle summer wind that caresses your skin! I feel that in the recent years, our summer weather is more often humid and warm  -  and with scents that remind me of the summers in Italy.

A proposito, we are of course well prepared for the crucial match this evening:
☑ Red wine
☑ Stuffed chillies
☑ Parmesan
☑ Breadsticks.

 Forza Azzurri!
