Buon Compleanno


(Piero, San Francisco, 1970's)

It's the Divine Italian's birthday today. We've been together 17 years, married for 13, and I can truly say that every year keeps getting better. He's a veritable force of nature, as everyone who knows him can attest. 

Whether he's cycling up the Col de la Colombiere in the Alps...

(Piero, French Alps, 2008)

...telemark skiing down a mountain of untrammelled snow...

(Piero, Mammoth, 2007)

...or whipping up boeuf bourgignon for ten on a Sunday afternoon...

(Piero, home, 2008)

...he is fully present in each moment and has been instrumental in teaching me to slow down and enjoy the Campari. He is a seeker -- always curious, always looking forward, never backwards, always planning our next adventure. He's a wonderful father, a brilliant friend and he has the best laugh in the world. Ti amo, dude.

That must be the cutest picture I have ever seen from a boy that is NOT my child!
Tanti Auguri a te, Piero! Dopo aver letto le parole della tua moglie, sono anch'io, convinta che sei un "Divino Italiano"! Lisa Honey...aks your hubby for the translation. Have a great B-day all together, XXX, Carmie.

One of my dear friends is married to a divine Italian too and he loves telling us stories when his english was not so good and he would just say, "I eat" - and of course he was not kidding...we laugh and love to dream of the b & b in Italy with fresh delights from their terraced garden.
birthday wishes to your divine italian - full of a beautiful life.
