Arrivederci…

Yesterday was my mother-in-law’s memorial service, and while it was incredibly sad, it was also a very beautiful celebration of her life. I thought it would be appropriate to feature a gift pick inspired by her today.

She truly loved traveling, exploring other cultures, and learning new languages. She’s always loved all things Italian, so when she became very sick and bedridden, my husband and I got her this:

We thought it would be a nice way to keep her stimulated and take her mind off of being sick. She put up such a fight over the past year and a half, and it has been such an inspiration to see that she wouldn’t let anything, not even cancer, get in the way of continually broadening her horizons and living life in the fullest way possible.

You’ll be missed, Mom. We are sending you much love and will be carrying you in our hearts every day. Arrivederci… e viaggio sicuro!
