Italian Dreaming

 It’s a Throw Back Thursday post to our 3 week Italian road trip. It feels like it never happened but it was only in October.

38 weeks pregnant, braxton hicks galore and sipping on raspberry leaf I’m  dreaming of sunshine and gelato.

Ice cream 2 edited-2

Giolitti, on Via Uffici del Vicario was one of the best, and so it should be, being the oldest ice cream parlour in the city. Pistachio ( you can tell the quality by the colour, too green means awful) and  Stracciatella are the flavours I couldn’t go past for the entire trip.

Roxy was also in heaven, relaxing in Piazza di Monte Citorio with ‘pink’ being her go to.

With the evenings getting ever so slightly lighter here maybe just maybe I can start pretending sunshine and warmth, blue skies and bare arms will be here soon.

( can’t wait to get her back in this Mini Rodini jumpsuit either)
