Wrapping up my Italy Gratitude List series, I wanted to give a nod to some smaller things that are quintessentially Italian. Things that make me stop in my tracks to capture it in a photo… photos which most certainly, but very unintentionally, embarrass my traveling buddies (“Oh no, Mom’s taking a picture of her salad again” and “Please, no, another picture of a door?” are phrases I have heard multiple times).
But it is precisely these tiny details — embellishments of ordinary items, pops of unexpected color or artful window displays — which give Italy its daily elegance and artistry.

Wishing you a day filled with beauty and joy, no matter where in the world you find yourselves!
