Two Years Ago Today

Sunday, December 21st, 2008

While traveling in Italy we stopped by the city of Bologna to visit Lucia and Valerio, a couple we befriended at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Here we are in November of 2006 after one too many large beers

Julius told her that his favorite Italian dish was Spaghetti Bolognese and Lucia promised to make it if we visited them when we were in Italy the next month. Here we are in their dining room

The dish was, of course, fantastic! We still remember the meal as one of the best on our trip. We are still in touch with them and they now have a son, Marco, about a year older than Esther. We sent him a shirt for his first birthday. We received this photo this week.
