Hi friends! It’s me, Nana. The person behind the camera. I thought I’d jump on here and introduce myself. I’m 33 and I’ve been married for 6 years to my amazing husband. We have a precious 2.5 year old boy. They are my entire world!
A few things about myself:
-I LOVE the water, but I’m terrified of drowning! Don’t even try to come creeping up to me... I will FREAK out. 🌊
-9 times out of 10 you’ll find me watching Investigation Discovery. I’m obsessed with murder shows. 😬
-I got in a car accident in college (not my fault) and broke my right femur. I’ve had a rod in my leg ever since. 🚗
-I played soccer from the age 3 until 18. It’s my favorite sport! ⚽️
-I went to the University of Maryland College Park and graduated with a double degree in marketing and graphic design. 🎓
-I’m 💯% Egyptian and will be vacationing there in few weeks. It’s been 10 years since I lasted visited... so I’m excited! Any tips for traveling with a toddler?! Yes, I will be (virtually) taking you along. ✈️ Tell me something about yourself in the comments below.
For the last 2 weeks I was up in Chicago. Got to meet family, and see downtown Chicago, Aurora, Montgomery, Oswego and so much more. I also spent 2 nights in Lafayette, Indiana. Thanks auntie @marisol0206 and uncle Rick for letting us stay at your house and driving me and my dad all over. #puertoricanbloodline#family#chicago#aurora#vacation
🇬🇧Just 8 km from Home there is a wonderful refuge for the delicacies of the territory: Formaggeria Carozzi in Pasturo. I was there not a long time ago to enjoy an happy hour with a friend, this is a small example of km0 (more or less) authenticity and goodness. We have tried:
🍺 “my beer” a craft beer of Premana, fresh and clear, golden and malty but with a clean taste, excellent with the tasting platter that we ordered;
🧀🥓 cheese and salumi typical of the valley. We were briefly explained with kindness and sympathy to each cheese and each salami, what it was and in what order it was recommended to taste them.
If you are around I suggest you to take a nice walk on the bike path or to go 🚵🏼♀️, wet your feet in the river to cool off and then cut out a special moment here, outdoors, with the palate satisfied by the quality of the raw material and the respect with which it is treated.
🇮🇹 Ad appena 8 km da Casa c’è un meraviglioso rifugio per le golosità del territorio: @carozziformaggi a Pasturo. Ci sono stata non molto tempo fa per godermi un aperitivo in compagnia, un piccolo esempio di km0 (pressapoco dai) di autenticità e bontà. Noi abbiamo provato:
🍺 #lamiabirra una birra artigianale di Premana, fresca e chiara, dorata e dal sapore maltato ma pulito, ottima con il tagliere degustazione che abbiamo ordinato;
🧀🥓 #formaggiesalumi deliziosi, tipici della valle. Ci è stato brevemente spiegato con gentilezza e simpatia ogni formaggio e ogni salume, di cosa si trattasse e in che ordine fosse consigliato assaggiarli.
Se siete in zona vi consiglio quindi di fare una bella passeggiata sulla ciclabile o di percorrerla in 🚵🏼♀️, bagnare i piedi nel fiume per rinfrescarvi e ritagliarvi poi un momento speciale qui, all’aria aperta, con il palato soddisfatto dalla qualità della materia prima nonché dal rispetto con cui viene trattata.
