|Happy Anniversary Tiffany and Jerome!|
Nine years ago today, despite all odds after 9/11, my sister was married in Rome.
In a few days, it will be my 11 years for me...and on the 27th, my wonderful Grandmother turns 39...again! A whole lotta love going on in my family ~
|My oldest, Marcello, was only 6 months old! He is such a big boy now, I'm off to his first football game later today. We found an amazing gazebo in the Borghese gardens for them to be married in. It was a bit challenging directing the Minister to the correct gazebo in the heart of the gardens (they are large), and then for us to get a car as close as we could... No wonder those European women all have such amazing legs, with all of the walking!|
Sempre Amore, Roma, 22.9.2001
Italians love romance...
We had to stop at The Spanish Steps before going to the Hotel Eden...It was as if they were celebrities, they were swarmed with well-wishers! It was so very touching, an experience to never forget. I also made the dupioni shawl that she is wearing, embroidered with gold fleur de lis and pearl drops. It's one of my favourite things that I've ever made. In particular because of the extra love that went into it ~
