Dear parents, well done!

As another year is being added to your union, let’s celebrate you and the fortune that is to be born near you.

Luckily, I don’t need to study this question too hard, because you two indeed met and took care of my face and all the rest.

Here are some of the loveliest photos that you have sent me in the last few years, only one was taken by me.

The first and the last photo in the gallery were taken two years ago for your big 50th by the pro photographer Mirko Kunšič and it shows. Father at the Fontana di Trevi is the earliest (who knows if I was born yet), mom in your garden with the kakis (persimmons) is the latest, taken four days ago by dad. The one before last I took this summer when everything was murky like this sky but we were together and this is what counts.

There are some celebrations in my today’s blogging memories as well. You two are sooo cute that no words are necessary.

And here is a little bird that stood long enough for me to click yesterday. I thanked her and it told me that every little thing is going to be alright, as long as we have each other. Cin cin, buon appetito, and thank you for all the love.

This day in my blogging history

    1. Thank you kindly, Emma! Just earlier I shared one of your paintings on FB but cannot comment to tell you that I love so many others of them as well!! Just lovely. This fountain is by Niki de Saint Phalle and it’s in her Giardino dei Tarocchi right here. I have many posts from there. If you click on the fountain, you’ll be transferred to one of them.

    1. Thank you, Sunra Nina. 🙂 I’m glad you like them and their smiles. I miss them. I like how you call the tree: peace tree! 😉 Probably you were going for peach. It’s neither this nor apple but persimmon, or kaki tree! Father makes a mean mousse out of them.
