When I went off the road for the holidays, I knew I was in for some crazy times with the Della Pescas. Here are a few of the highlights from my winter break!
First, I landed in New Jersey and the Goddess of the Garden State was so happy to see me she painted a rainbow across the horizon!Soon, it was Thanksgiving! At dinner, my mother shared that she was incredibly grateful for her three beautiful children. (Note: She has five children… I wonder if I made the cut.)While we ate, all these babies played with the latest fad in children’s toys—ice buckets and seltzer!
And these babies contemplated the meaning of life and whether God is real:The day after Thanksgiving, the whole gang went Christmas tree chopping, as is our annual tradition. Can you guess which of these trees came home with us? Good, because I can’t.
While we were in the Christmas tree spirit, my cousin, my sister and I decided to go see the Rockefeller tree lighting in New York City… which we watched through the window of a department store because we were being crushed by the huddled masses of humanity … WORTH IT! (It wasn’t worth it.)Then, my family welcomed one million Italian foreign exchange students into our home (a.k.a. we shoved them in the basement) for a mock Thanksgiving dinner!Somebody’s mom channeled their inner Cake Boss to make these beautiful masterpieces that represented the deep bond and connection between us and the Italians!Then it snowed! And 10 million other girls and I took artsy pictures of it on Instagram!While we were snowed in, we entertained ourselves by using my little brother’s head to make machine gun sound effects like normal people.
And that was my winter break in a nutshell! No wonder Beyonce wants to be my friend so badly!
Until next time,
