The good side of the past six months

I haven’t been blogging for a while, and as I said, I’m back….maybe.

The past six months have been a rollercoaster that changed me as well as my life.

There are few things that I held on during this ride, trying to find some moments of peace and remember what life is about. Small things, I know, but sometimes it’s all it takes to smile, to feel things will get better, and we can find a way no matter what.

I thought it would be nice to blog about the good side of the past six months, and I’m going to start right now.

I made homemade pasta (click for the recipe) and homemade tomato sauce! It took me the whole weekend, but it was more than worthy.


In the past I often saw my father and other relatives making homemade pasta, but this was my very first experience, and it was great!
It’s an excellent way to live your home, stay in company, and at the same time doing something productive and healthy that will stay with you and your family for months.

It might sound snob, but now I have hard time using canned tomato sauce, and I can’t wait to do it all over again!

This was actually a great gift that I got, and we want to make is a family tradition!

Another good thing I did – and here I answer to all of you who wrote me wondering how things were going – it’s been going back to run. After shin splints, a stress fracture, and a pretty recent dislocated knee, I wasn’t of course able to achieve my goal to run my first 10k race.

As those of you who followed my running journey can probably understand, the disappointment was overwhelming, and the lack of motivation even worse.  I had to start over after every injury, and it was getting harder and harder.


I don’t even know how I started again, I just did.
I’m not even close to the training level that I was at the end of the winter, but I’m running. Every time I wonder why I’m doing it, but I feel alive.

I guess my goal still stands.
(Btw, where to you keep your key when you go running?)

I’m back… maybe

Hi everybody! How are you guys doing?

Lots happened in my life the last 6 months, and I haven’t been able to take care of my blog. Hopefully things are going to get better very soon, and I have lots of surprises for you.

In the meantime I have to thank you for all the visits and comments I have received. It’s really touching to know that you didn’t forget about me, and were wondering how I was doing!

As I said already in the past, this blog is for you.

I’ll be back very soon.
