grazie mille perchè col tuo ultimo post mi hai riportata in giro per Bologna, città a me cara, sicuramente per le stesse ragioni per cui è tanto cara anche a te! Ah, quanti bei ricordi! Ma dai, la Nutelleria non c'è più? Ti dirò, eran sempre un po' "avari" con la Nutella per i miei gusti!!!
E il mercatino di Santa Lucia...immancabile tappa natalizia durante gli anni dell'università...insomma, basta che adesso mi scende anche la lacrimuccia, sai che ho il cuore tenero e la lacrima facile!
With your last post you brought back loads of lovely memories of our happy times in Bologna during our university years...amazing!
Volevo comunque restare sul tema ricordi e salutare il l'anno che è appena finto attraverso le mie foto preferite del 2011, tanto per fare un po' un bilancio...sei pronta? Via!
Today I wanted to celebrate the year that's just gone with my favourite pictures of 2011, are you ready...steady...go!
A Marzo ho avuto la possibilità di fare un viaggio in Nuova Zelanda, che bellezza!
In March we went to New Zealand for two weeks, what an amazing place!

We were invited to our friends Owen & Toni's wedding, they got married on the beach in Gisborne...absolutely magic!

A couple of weeks after coming back from NZ, I went to Bruxelles to visit my friend Cristina, she moved there some time ago with her boyfriend and their cat :-) I had been to Bruxelles before with Stu and I had completely fell in love with it, I was glad to be back so soon!

The day after coming back from Bruxelles I travelled to Italy and that was the first time I came to your house, do you remember?

In May we treated ourselves to a new kitchen...we worked hard it and we are very happy about it, now it's my favourite room in the house!

Ho festeggiato due compleanni importanti in famiglia...
We celebrated two important family birthdays...
|my sister in law 21st birthday|
|little cousin Isla's 1st birthday|
Summer was fun, too, loads of great memories...

I was also lucky to have two special friends coming to visit me in Manchester...
|First Emma came to visit in the summer..|
|...then it was you just before Christmas!|
A inizio dicembre ho festeggiato il mio 32esimo compleanno...
Finally it was time to celebrate me getting old...32 last year!
E poi a casa dei miei per festeggiare il Natale 2011!
Soon enough Christmas came, I spent it in Italy with my family...it was also the first time Stuart spent Christmas in Italy!

Insomma, non mi è sembrato affatto male come anno il 2011...tra alti e bassi, l'importante è averlo trascorso assieme ai miei cari, parenti e amici, grazie a tutti per un fantastico 2011 e speriamo che il 2012 sia altrettanto buono, se non di più! Grazie anche a te Tatina e grazie al nostro blog che ci aiuta a sentirci ancora più vicine!
All in all, I think 2011 was a great year...between highs and lows, the most important thing is that I have had the love and support of family and friends, so thanks everyone for another year to remember and let's hope 2012 is just as good, if not better!
Of course thanks to you and to our blog as well, which helps us feeling closer!
