A year ago we were happily living in Rome enjoying new experiences. One of the highlights of living abroad is having friends and family come visit. I particularly enjoyed seeing Rome through the eyes of my friends and family who always managed to show me something new.Sean, Maggie, David, Denny and Bob, Spanish Steps, Rome, 2012
Shared experiences take on a collective life of their own especially in the retelling or reminiscing which only gets better with time – like a fine bottle of Chianti. Chef Bob Grating Nutmeg for Ravoli, Maryland, 2013
This past weekend we celebrated the anniversary of a shared week in Rome with friends Denny, Bob, Maggie, and Sean in the best way possible – drinking, cooking, remembering, and laughing.T, Denny, and Joe Whisking the Flour and Eggs for Fresh Pasta, 2013
We included T and Barry who are headed to Italy in the near future. Hopefully our cooking, tales of visiting catacombs, villas, ancient ruins and enjoying the Dolce Vita inspired them. Joe, Sean, and Maggie Rolling Paper Thin Dough for Ravoli, 2013
