Sweet Bella Vita

a dash of motherhood… a sprinkle of homeschooling… and a pinch of photography ( with a side of compassion )


flashback friday… Pietracatella

My mom was from a very small town in the mountains of Campobasso (Molise, Italy)


I spent endless hours sitting on the stoop in front of my grandparents home, collecting all the snails that crawled by and playing hide and seek and tag with the kids.

these pictures were taken in 2006… but I swear it looks exactly as it did when I visited every summer of my childhood … it has the gift of staying frozen in time …
