Even though we haven't officially moved to Italy yet, we thought that our going away party was the perfect starting point to our blog. Jon's parents, Lori and Joe, threw us an arrivederci party today at their house in New Jersey. With two weeks to go until we leave, it was an amazing send off, one filled with lots of love and thoughtfulness. Flags of Italy flew above the red, white, and green clad tablecloths, while the caprese and cannolis gave us a taste of what is to come. Some pictures are below... unfortunately, I didn't get any of Lori who spent a lot of time preparing for the party and did an excellent job hosting. Thanks Lori, Joe, Gaye, and Al!
