Thank you! (and Happy Holidays)


Ever since the post about my decision to blog in Italian, I have wanted to THANK YOU all so much for the kindness and support you always send my way! I really am extremely grateful, and I never take it for granted, not even for a minute.
I decided to show you my gratitude in the form of a small video message. Please bear in mind I was very embarrassed in front of the camera and I was speaking softly because my neighbor was around, so be patient, hehe. Captions are available in both English and Italian.


Ho girato un piccolo video per ringraziarvi tutti per il sostegno continuo e l'affetto che date sempre a me e a questo blog e per augurarvi buone feste. Ero un po' imbarazzata davanti alla fotocamera e il mio vicino di casa si aggirava nei paraggi, perciò parlo in modo un po' strano, eheheh. Perdonatemi! :)

  1. Dear Anna, there's really no need at all to apologise or to be embarrassed! You might be even more adorable on video than you are on photos and in your writing. I didn't think it was possible!
    Seriously, thank YOU for your beautiful, down-to-earth blog, and particularly your honesty and your great photography. I always look forward to seeing what you've made when a new post appears in my feed reader.
    Have a lovely and relaxing holiday!

  8. Dear Anna,

    Your decision to include Italian on your blog has been uniquely helpful for me - I doubled majored in Italian in college and now that I'm no longer required to read long texts or don't have a set weekly conversation time, I'm struggling to find relevant ways to practice Italian. Now I can practice Italian AND read your adorable blog! It's been very encouraging for me :)

    Grazie mille!!!

  12. Christine, there are English captions! XD If they don't appear automatically, just click on "watch on Youtube" and the video will open in a new tab with all the options!

  14. Che bella cosa, Jessica! Per me è la stessa cosa con i blog di cucito francesi, perciò capisco benissimo.
    Complimenti per aver studiato italiano, non è per niente una lingua facile!

  15. Sei stata bravissima, altro che impacciata! Io avrei iniziato a ridere a crepapelle e a far facce strane :)
    Tanti auguri anche a te da una lettrice che non cuce ma che ama molto il tuo blog e le tue scelte creative... nella speranza che qualcuno me le faccia su misura!!! :D

  19. I love Greek! I wish I spoke it since all my neighbors do... although I'm not sure I want to know everything they're saying! :) Italian is such a beautiful language, too. :)
