Some of you figured out really quickly why…
I haven’t been posting a lot about wine,
haven’t been on Facebook as much,
would rather meet for coffees instead of an aperitivos,
and have been to the doctor’s office so many times.


Well if you couldn’t figure it out by now, Claudio and I are happy to announce that we are expecting a baby in September! I am already so proud of this little guy/girl for being a harvest baby too. The due date is the 17th, right in the middle of grape-picking, the tourist boom and Claudio’s big house trade show but we couldn’t be happier. The date is actually really meaningful since Claudio’s family has always celebrated that as his second birthday. It was the day he miraculously survived his horrible motorcycle accident which makes it all seem like fate!

So now my baby bump is just starting to show, my constant nausea is starting to subside, and we are getting more and more excited for this new arrival. It has already been a fun and nerve-racking adventure trying to figure out what to do here in Italy and especially listening to all the funny (I mean serious) wives’ tales in Italy.

For now I am just trying to stay positive and keep truckin’ along! I would also like to send a big thanks out to Allegra from and Jess from Adventures In Italy for giving me such great support and advice during the “oh my god I am freaking out and don’t know what to do here” initial stage!
