Friday Favorites–Inspired by Italy

My son’s birthday is on Monday.  I already sent him a box of goodies, but in all his 21 years we’ve never been in different countries when it was time to celebrate.  Since I can’t be there, I thought it would be fun to focus on some things related to where he is right now.  And where I’ll be in approximately 213 days…not that I’m counting.
