Italy

Life is a series of striking contrasts. โœจ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Day and night. Peace and chaos. Rest and work. Nature and cities. Land and sky. The week and Shabbat. โœจ Living (and loving!) the whirlwind, the intensity, the grind makes a rare peaceful respite all the more sacred, appreciated and magical. Shabbat Shalom!

My friend looked at me today and said, โ€œMaybe we need to learn to pray.โ€ A Sunday to reflect, recharge, respect, reset. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโœจ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Benvenuto a Ravello! ๐Ÿ›ต๐Ÿ—บ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น My new favorite town sits atop the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast. If you need me, Iโ€™ll be perched in the sky over Italiaโ€ฆ โ›ฒ๏ธ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒ€

The best pasta Iโ€™ve ever tasted in my entire life. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ… Glutenfree spaghetti with homemade pomodoro sauce made from four varietals of local Italian tomatoes. Yes, the roasted seasonal vegetable pizza is delectably glutenfree as well. The crisp regional white wine heavenly. The olive oil perfection. And the view of the Amalfi Coast unrivaled. #ladolcevita

True story: our car got towed, so we had to walk all the way down the mountain into the town of Amalfi. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ—บโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโœจ What we thought was an epic fail, frustrating waste of time and potentially ruined vacation turned into a spectacular 80โ‚ฌ half-day Italian adventure complete with cherry tomatoes along the trail, ancient ruins within reach and the picturesque coastal view of our (and your!) dreams. Oh how I love Italy.

La vita รจ bella. โœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น A reminder that amid the madness, there is beauty.

Yes, that Democratic Debate was madness, but there is hope yet. Itโ€™s not too late. We know what weโ€™re fighting for and why, we can reform our democracy and drive change, we are empowering a generation to lead the revolutions we need for a just, healthy, thriving and yes, beautiful world.

Everyone thinks Iโ€™m Italian, I feel at home, I fit right in. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ So should I do 23andMe and figure out where the heck Iโ€™m from?! Real question. Please discuss. Because it sufficiently freaks me outโ€ฆ


Also, I love Italy. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

My momma has told me about the magical isle of Capri since I was a tiny little girlโ€ฆ โœจ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Itโ€™s surreal to see it with my own eyes. A dream.

I knew weโ€™d be lifelong friends the moment we met, albeit as complete strangers in the worst conditions and unlikeliest of places on earth. Just look at us now! I love you so much, am insanely proud of who youโ€™re becoming and feel immensely grateful to know that you have my back (the photo is proof!) and I have yours, no matter what or where or when or why. Friendships that stand the test of time, of oceans, of languages, of cultures, of forces quite literally trying to destroy usโ€ฆ those bonds are surely forever. ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

The Amalfi Coast is a dream. If you have a list, add it. If you donโ€™t, create one with this at the top! Youโ€™ll thank me.๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ—บ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น


And be sure Puerto Rico is on there too, complete with whatever Governor weโ€™ll have after Rossellรณ (just resigned) and Pierluisi (newly announced) and whomever is next and and andโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸผโœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ท
