Postcard - Chocolate Festival

We had a great time at the Chocolate Festival all weekend in our home town of Merate. People streamed in from near and far...I was pretty full of people. The atmosphere was very jovial, and the weather couldn't have been better.

It was a couple days where I found myself often feeling grateful for what we are doing. Willy even got on the carousel without screaming. It was an excellent weekend!

Postcard - Market Day!

Tuesdays are very cool here in Merate because it's market day. It's the same thing each week - a convoy of fold out shops on wheels thunders into town before dawn, each setting up shop in their designated spots for the morning.
