la vita è bella

Part one of my friend's visit is now over. She and her son flew to Italy today and for eight days they'll be enjoying the charm of Venice, Florence and Lake Garda before returning to Antwerp for part two. To sum up the last two days: hugs & laughter; mussels & white wine; prosciutto & melon, Baileys & latte; strolling & shopping; caprese salad, baguette & red wine; clouds, rain & sun.

I'm so behind on my blog visits; my Bloglovin' is basically exploding! I hope you have been enjoying wonderful days.
