mothers day

Look at us.  I mean just LOOK.  AT.  US. 

Often, well, no, strike that…. Every Time someone looks at a picture of me and Livvy, I hear, “Oh Wow!!  She really is your Mini Me!!”  And I smile a sheepish smile, nod my head, and say, “Yep!  Just like lookin’ in a mirror!”

Which is why I simply could not resist sharing this mini-me-ness with you all! My mom, Livvy, and me, on Mother’s Day.  All the ducks in a row.  And you want to talk about looking in a mirror, look at this- it’s like Guy Smiley episode of “Here is Your Life!”

So, on the heels of this epic Mother’s Day photo shoot, I present to you, Livvy, your very own quick version of Here is Your Life!

-Learn to love Pomade.  Thick, wavy, Italian-style hair is hard to tame.  It has a mind of its own.  I’m sure Amazon Prime will still be around by the time you’ll need it, so add that to your subscribe and save!

-Green is your best color.  Our naturally-darker skin tone looks AMAZING next to a vibrant Kelly Green shirt.  Buy several Polo shirts and crewnecks in this color.  You’ll never regret it.

-Nonni and Momma will be your best cook books.  I hate to be presumptuous here, girl, but, Liv- you are going to learn to cook and bake some of the most delicious dishes.  Pasta Fagioli, Italian anisette cookies, lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and delicious chunky smooth red sauce.  These valuable life skills will take you far, and help keep your home happy, and full.
