Ciao from Italy

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I've been signed up for a while and perusing but have yet to introduce myself...
I'm Mary, an over-40 mom, musician and Alexander Technique trainee and I've followed my family's origins back to the homeland but still like a taste of the US in the form of Mothering.
I have a lovely man and a beautiful 11-month-old girl, Alina, that (help!) I keep falling deeper and deeper in love with.
We had a great home birth experience and there's a chapter of La Leche League in my town. Best of all, a little group of us moms spilled off from post-partum support at the hospital (where I went to meet people) and we've been having weekly pot luck lunches since last April. Now first b-day parties are starting so I welcome : any "no-junk" first b-day suggestions...
So life is good in spite of the fog (yes, there's fog in Italy) - and it's better knowing all you moms are out there.
Be well

Hello and welcome!

My husband's brother lives in Italy with his Italian wife. They are expecting their first baby.

I LOVE Italy.

Welcome! I dream of going to Italy some day to see where my family came from. As for party ideas are you planning on snacks or a meal? If you do snacks, how about cheese & crackers, veggies & dip? If you plan a meal a big pot of yummy soup is easy healthy & inexpensive. Check out the nutrition & good eating thread there is a favorite soup thread going, & lots of recipes!

First I want to say WELCOME! Next I would like to say how much I would like to visit Italy before I die. You are lucky. You sound like a very nice person and I like the views that you have. :

Ciao!

I love Italy. I spent a year there (in Sardegna, specifically) doing my dissertation research. Before that, I had visited twice and been an AFS exchange student to Cagliari during high school....

It's been 11 years now, since I've been there. I can't wait to go back someday!

Welcome - these boards are alot of fun!

thanks for the warmmmmmmmmmmth

Thanks for the warm welcome(s) and suggestions for b-day. I'm just learning the ropes - or threads - here at MDC but I like the company already!
To the Michigan member - I'm an ex-Michigander myself so I'm sure you'll make it over here some time.

Welcome! I know the fog in Italy well. I'm Lee, a 40-something Reiki Master, and I live in southern CA. Enjoy preparing for Alina's first birthday (you can see I have a daughter named Alena. ) I've also been interested in Alexander technique training!
