- The word “limoncello” called out to me.
- I love all things Italian—the language, culture, lifestyle, food, art, literature, everything.
I love reading. So I read widely and although some books may not apply to my current lifestyle (for example, being married) or even certain circumstances (for example, losing a job—I’m very blessed I have a job that I love and enjoy), these books are very appealing to me because of the correlation with other subjects. In this case, it’s written with an Italian perspective. I loved it. I think that when I do face a sad personal situation, I would be able to handle it better because I’ve prepped myself, or maybe simply just being able to help comfort others who are in need.
On the lighter side of things, I tasted my first heavenly and unforgettable limoncello in an authentic Italian restaurant Bali late last year. I was on vacation with my Italian travel buddy. The food was awesome and it was there and then that my love for Italian food blossomed. I also enjoyed the Italian banter between my travel buddy and the restaurant owner. At that time, my Italian was still at a very immature stage so I couldn’t understand what they were saying but ogni parola suonato come musica (every word sounded like music).
I’m very sure I’ll be enjoying this special book very much, and I’m very eager to share my thoughts with you. It’s funny how things “found” you. This book found me.
