    Rock it sister. There is no worse pain than losing a loved one. A wonderful piece. And one that really illustrates how strong you are. As an Italian (and fellow pasta lover) I can’t wait to try your recipes! Bravo.

    This is such an amazing piece of writing girl! Anyone who thinks that food can’t work wonders is obviously WRONG.

    Beautiful, beautiful piece. I’ve never had my heart truly broken by a relationship but having just lost my grandma, this helps :)
