{Long weekend in Pictures}

It’s Sunday evening and I’m back at my pc. Right in time for a new post about the last days…

Last thursday I decided to go back to Tuscany to spend few days with my family and to enjoy the last days of sunny and hot weather. I love beach in September. No crowds, no screaming children all over, the sea water was clean and freezing.

To me Tuscany is like heaven, it’s my medicine when I feel sad and blue and when I have some worries I look at the sea and I feel calm and quite… It has the power to change my mood in a very short period, it’s therapeutic…
Don’t you think?

I need the sun and the sea as the air to breathe!
I read my book ( I’ve almost finished the last book of the Twilight series, I adored all of them and I can’t wait to see the next episode “New Moon”), I listened my favourite music and renewed my tan…

I come back to Bologna on Saturday afternoon because I had a dinner chez Federica. She did an housewarming dinner with all of our friends. Before, me and Mr B., we went for a walk and we had an aperitif just the two of us. He wasn’t with me in Tuscany and I missed him too much!

Federica and Giacomo (federica’s boyfriend) did an awesome job on how they decorated their little love nest! I know that most of you know her and her blog and you know what I’m talking about. It’s very very pretty and delicate. The main features of the house are : soft colors and a particular attention to details, a romantic touch with a french inspiration, warm and bright. It’s cosy and welcoming. I really like it!!!

They set the table and put candles everywhere. The dinner was great as well as the chats with my friends. We had a very nice

The were also the boyfriends… they are just not in the pics! Thanks Patata! (it’s how I call her Potato!)

Then , today we went to visit Mr B.’s relatives for lunch. It was his granny’s birthday. They live in the country where I had the chance to see magic transformation of fall. Beautiful colors and still warm and sunny! It’s like what people call Indian summer…

We spent the afternoon at a vintage faire where, unfortunately, I couldn’t take any pics, and we ended the weekend with this fantastic sunset!

… and that’s all for today!

    What a great weekend! I too, love the beach in September for all those reasons! This weekend was busier than usual. I went for walks in parks, took a boat ride (the ferry to staten island), then took a wine and pasta class yesterday. I'll post about that tomorrow, but today I've got some recipes from the "inspiration" over the weekend!

  • What a lovely weekend for you! Tuscany's beaches look similar to ours here in Yanchep. Beautiful! I love the way your friend has decorated her home. I've been decorating this weekend, too. And today we went to a fair, but I also have no photos because I left the memory card for my camera at home! Wendy xxx

    I love the beach and sunset pictures. I went to a park on Friday that is right at the end of an island. There is no beach but just being by the ocean makes me so happy. My friend has a home there and I am so jealous she can see the water all the time. Maybe someday I will live by the water. Hope you have a wonderful week! :)

  • Ciao Gaia! Anch'io adoro il mare...specialmente fuori stagione! Che bella cena da Federica! Ha fatto davvero un ottimo lavoro con la sua nuova casa! Congratulations on your award!!!!
    Happy new day!

  • I wish I could be near the ocean right now...Beautiful pictures!!! Have a beautiful week :o)

  • Sid said:

    You live in Italy? Ugh I was there for a month and didn't venture out to the ocean. Kinda hate myself for that.

  • What an amazing weekend! Tuscany looks gorgeous! And I agree with you cant wait for New Moon to come out, the Twilight series is my favorite book series!

  • There's nothing quite like a meal shared with good friends! And Tuscany wouldn't be half bad either! Loving that sunset and the blue blue ocean. I hope you are well, Gaia. It's good to be back. I always love your blog. :)

  • I've always wanted to go to Tuscany!!!! I love, love your photos. I hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by coeur de la and leaving your note about fresh spices and your sweet hello!!!!

  • What a wonderful few days you've had recently!! A completely LOVELY post and photos.

    Federica's home looks fantastic and it looks like the housewarming party was so fun!
