Here, in Tuscany in my places, in the lives and homesof the people I’ve been missing for so long. Bike rides around Forte de Marmi and small talk on the beach with my oldest of friends. Old stories bringing out new laughs.Aperitivi, and dinners in the garden while watching our children play and get to know each other.
Drives through the country side of Arezzo to reach my primary school friend Bianca’s family country home,
the place we’ve shared dolls and toys in, had drunken new years eve parties in and now watch our own children play in. We cook on the same fireplace and in the same space we have known and grown in for the past 30 years, and we cheer to us,to now, to this…
After a week we move to Bolgheri in Maremma. To some this is the wine mecca of Tuscany, home of Sassicaia, to me it’s seaside moments with friends their new baby’s and dinnerswith starters of fresh figs, wild boar salame and Bolgheri wine in my friend Chiara’s garden.
