Mamma Mia! Let’s Celebrate our Love for Italy!


Today is Columbus Day.  The day in which we remember Christopher Columbus’ arrival to the Americas.  In honor of this great day and this man whom came from Italy, I’m celebrating everything Italian today.  Italy, with its great vineyards, amazing food and rich history, seems to be a heritage that we are infatuated with.  Who doesn’t love all things Italian?!

 The Top Reasons why we celebrate and Love Italy.


 The Pizza

You can eat it daily.


The Spaghetti

You can twirl it like nobody’s business.


The Wine

It’s guaranteed that you get this fruit group into your daily diet.

And, good wine is more important to you than a pile of money.


 Italian – the universal language

You’re really good at talking with your hands.


Grape Juice

You know exactly what cherished Television show this scene is from.


The Produce

You could spend hours wandering the open air fruit and vegetable markets.


 Italian Men & Women

You’re pretty sure the Italians were first in line when God was handing out looks.

It’s your dream to drive a little car.


Or maybe even a scooter.



Frolicking in vineyards has always seemed like your calling in life.



The Easy Life

You really just like to relax and hang out wherever!




Your day is not complete without a little coffee.



You’re pretty sure the window boxes everywhere were hung for you.



You know all the words to THAT’S AMORÈ



Since your early days of finger-painting, you’ve dreamed of becoming an artist in Italy.



Uhm, ’nuff said


Italian Desserts

Leave the gun, take the cannoli

    This is such a cool post you have here today, Margaret! Even more because I’m in the middle of planning a trip to Rome. I’ve been in the lakes and mountains regions, but not in the capital. Should be fun! Have you ever been in Rome?

    Arrivedeci, for now 🙂

    Italy yes Columbus no. He actually was a horrible person and the history we learned as kids white washed his genocide of American Indians. Also apparently he was not the first explorer to find America.

  3. Hey Maggie, Wow. I am so grateful that you’ve found my blog… I’m about to dig in and see more about who you are and what you’re up to in the world which surely needs more magic. Thank you for ‘getting’ today’s thoughts on magic… I have to say that when I saw this, Mama Mia! it sure made me homesick for Italy… I just left there two days ago and am already counting the days until I return!!!
