I love the post! Especially the peaches and wine thing. Great! Now you know why Italians name their son TONY? It means, To New York. Lol Ahh, ya probably heard it before, but I thought I'd throw that out atcha. I'm full blooded 2nd generation Italian American and proud of it! The neighborhood I grew up in was seventy five percent Italian. Upstate New York of course. All my best to you and you're familia!

Have you ever been to Italy? I'm also of Italian decent, Sicilian and Abruti, both southern Part of Italy, my husband and I visited for a month we drove all through Italy then to a plain to Sicily, it was fantastic. Do you speak any Italian? we only learned the words my parents didn't want us to understand, so I can cuss but sorry to say not much more.
