Thank you all visiting my blog and leaving nice comments here and at the same time I'm sorry that you hear from me less often these days. I do try to visit your inspiring blogs in my spare moments but my time on-line is quite limited. Life with one teething nine months old baby who crawls like crazy and treats sleeping as an enemy can be pretty occupying :) I do have some neglected and postponed photos and post to share and I will upload them, promise. Let me first find the way how to stretch my day to make it longer...

C. now works six days a week, including weekends. He's off only on Mondays and we always try to do something together to fully enjoy this precious time. Today we went to the countryside, taking advantage of this beautiful sunny weather. C. took us to Fontanigorda, a small village surrounded by hills, just an hour drive from Genoa. He used to spend his summers there when he was a boy so this little trip was a bit sentimental for him. It was just a perfect day. It was beautiful. We breathed cool air and we cherished the silence around us, interrupted only by church bell or barking of a dog somewhere in the distance.

And here are some photos to share, enjoy!

Little fountain, one out of many in Fontanigorda:

Church tower in the centre of the village:

Beautiful autumn colors (the reason I like October for):

And plenty of chestnuts around!
