last year at this time, i was just arriving in the beautiful lago di como to celebrate my very first christmas with my friend lucy and her family. the first snow of the season had just fallen (and stopped all northbound trains–oh, trenitalia) and the little village of cernobbio was a winter wonderland. the setting-picturesque, the food-delicious, and the company-so warm and welcoming.
villa belinzagi–the kenneally home.
the phenomenal view from the kitchen window.
the most adorable chiesa down the street–where they attended midnight mass while i slept..
a terrible picture of lucy and i aboard the ferry to como.
duomo di como.
mama kenneally’s melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake.
(which reminds me, i definitely need that recipe).
i cannot believe that was a whole year ago. and i couldn’t have asked for a better first christmas.
