Day to day in March

In March I finished up teaching violin lessons (which I had been doing for over a year at this point) by holding a small concert for my students. They did fantastic and it was a fun way to say goodbye. (Oh and you will also notice I had my hair dyed red, I could not stand the blonde anymore, it matches my violin!)

I took a cooking class at Aeolias so that I could learn to make Nick’s all time favorite, pear faggotini. It was a 4 class course and I learned several other dishes as well. Never hurts to take more cooking classes! I’m not even sure how many classes I have taken here in Italy, I love taking cooking classes. Now if I can just replicate what they show me…I’ll be set!

This is sort of like creme brulee but it is served cold and has a hint of orange flavor. It is crema catalana.



We took one last trip to Verona, Nick’s favorite city.

Found a broken down old sports car that looked like it had been in this garage forever. Really strange.

We fell in love with this antique table at a market and decided it needed to come home with us.

Nick’s unit did a good bye lunch for him.

Went to a movie on post and Daddy was in the previews. It will be weird for the kids to not see Dad on TV anymore when we leave.


Took a photo to remind ourselves how much gas costs here. Almost 70 Euro for a full tank, that’s nearly 100 dollars! And Americans complain about the cost of gas…

The kids have loved watching the construction in our back yard.


Nick went to Garmisch, Germany and got to do a German weapons training and earned a German “shootsen schneer”,  I am sure that is not how you spell it. But it was a fun experience for him to get to try out some German weapons.
