This requires wine.

I can’t believe this.

I was thisclose to realizing one of my dreams, years ago. Then life swept me down a current and that dream got tucked into a folder, shoved in a box, moved across the country, and kept in a closet.

Today I pulled out that folder, and I was in awe.

Everything is neatly organized. All of the forms are already filled out and put into envelopes. All I had to do was enclose a check and send them.

The date was marked 2009.

It’s 2014.

I could have had my Italian citizenship jure sanguinis by now.

How did five years go by without me realizing it? How did I let my dream be stuffed in a closet?

CRUSHED.

And that’s why I need wine.

Ciao, I'm Kelly!

Welcome to my adventures in learning Italian, often while cooking authentic Italian recipes and wine tasting! I love discovering the traditional regional cuisine of Italy and trying to recreate those dishes when I'm back home in the US. I'm also on my way to becoming an Italian citizen through jure sanguinis (by ancestry).
