Pic of the Month – September 2018

Friendship is one of the best things in life! To be part of a group of people that love and support you, with whom you can share your ups and downs, people who have seen you at your best and at your worst and that keep on standing by your side, this is inestimable.

I decided to share this bizarre picture from last month because, to me, it represents friendship at its best. During the last month we really rallied to organize four funny pranks to pump our other friends’ wedding up. We had soooo much fun (in the picture we are crafting an off-scale piadina) and I’m happy to report that the newlyweds were really pleased with what we came up; they really felt the love we put in for one of the biggest day of their lives.

Because, in the end, friendship is all about spreading love, taking time to dedicate time to the others, being there when you are needed and making great memories out of the most (extra)ordinary days.


Pic of the Month – August 2018

I was pretty bummed out when I found out that WP was no longer publishing new photo challenges. Though I did not partecipate every week, I really enjoyed them. So, in order to keep up with the photo journaling I decided to create this new “Pic of the Month” recurrence where, every month, I’ll post the hit picture from the previous 30 days.

And I am starting now by sharing a picture from my bestie bachelorette party. Despite the horrible weather (windy, rainy with a hailstorm in-between) we had the best time. We began with a bride-to-be themed lunch, involving 4 dishes, each representing a category: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

Then we went to the spa, but first we scared the bride a bit by making her believe we were all going to get twin tattoos. She was pretty relieved when we all got innocent temporary tats (the ones you see in the picture).

After some relaxation (but not for the bride! She had embarassing tasks to complete…) we went dancing in a pool outdoors. The water was warm, the DJ had ’90s dance music nostalgia and we felt like we were 14 again. It was incredibly fun, but it had to end somehow and we decided to make it end as it had begun: with all of us eating at the same table and making toasts for the soon-to-be wife.

The Photo Challenge #51 – Twisted

Sometimes things in life get all tangled and twisted and sometimes we are responsible for it. I guess it’s in our DNA to make a fuss over simple things at times. Maybe it’s because also our DNA is a twisted double helix…

The shape of the double winding staircase you see below actually kinda reminds of the shape of our DNA. You can see this beautiful and peculiar staircase in Innsbruck, inside the Stadtturm, before climbing the circa 200 steps that take you to the top.
