Joy comes to us in ordinary moments. We risk missing out on joy when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary – Brene Brown
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
One of our favorite things to do is go to San Francisco’s Columbus day parade in North Beach aka the Italian Heritage parade. It’s always the same week as fleet week so while getting to enjoy the parade you also get to watch the amazing Blue Angels fly overhead. We were lucky enough to get a table at our favorite spot, taking in all the sights while eating some antipasti and sipping on an Aperol Spritz.
“San Francisco itself is art…. every block is a short story, every hill a novel. Every home a poem, every dweller within immortal.” – William Saroyan

“No matter what happens, always keep your childhood innocence. It’s the most important thing.”― Federico Fellini
Couldn’t resist jumping into the middle of the parade to take a picture with this guy representing with the Sicilian flag. The three bent legs (Trinacria) represent the three points of the triangular shape of the island of Sicily, or the historical three valli of the island. #proudsicilian
The most memorable moments in life are the ones we never took the time to plan. – Unknown
View from the top of a parking garage to watch the Blue Angels. This also happens to be the church where I was married 11 yrs ago, my parents 42 yrs ago and my cousins almost 30 yrs ago.
