It was Chiara’s birthday Thursday November 24th. She became 25 years old, or the ol’ quarto secolo, as they say in Italian. We celebrated at a Swedish Restaurant with a big group of friends.
Chiara got a candle on her cheesecake.

This post, as coincidence has it, is my 300th, or the ol’ terzo secolo, as the Italians might say. I’m gonna treat myself to a fancy coffee.
