Highlights of my weekend were definitely the great study snacks! Saturday, while studying at a library in the city called the Oblate (which casually overlooked the Duomo) I took a break from my studies to find lunch. I stumbled upon a small place called "Love Life" which drew me in with its chic look and fresh food. Here I found smoothies, a salad bar, yogurt parfaits, and hearty soups. Can you say my heaven?! After weighing my options I decided on a smoothie with almond milk, yogurt, banana, and honey, topped with granola. It was so satisfying and refreshing. I make smoothies at home and absolutely love them. This turned out to be a great study break. Can't wait to come back to love life soon!
After studying at the Villa Rossa all day Saturday, Maria and I, decided to go to apertivo for a light dinner. Everyday on our way home from school we pass by the cutest little restaurant and always say we're going to go there for a glass of wine one night. Tonight was the night! It was a glass of rose for Maria and Chianti red for me. Their apertivo selection was much smaller than the one I went to last time, but was the perfect nibble food with our wine. With quaint decor and a cozy atmosphere, it was a great way to relax after long day of studying.
Sunday night’s dinner was also a highlight of the weekend. We had pasta e fagioli - a hearty bean soup very popular in
