    Discovered you blog about 2 weeks ago and love it.
    As for todays post, I can’t think of any happy accident, other than taking our first trip to Italy on a Catholic pilgrimage, with my 3 children, who were at the time ages, 17, 15, and 13…My middle child, a son, decided as soon as he saw Italy, that this is where he would complete his higher education. He was smitten with the culture. Well, he did just that. As a senior in high school, he applied to one University, in Rome, and was accepted. The rest is Italian history. He did all of his studying in Rome, received his degree there also. In the interim, we found out that we could become Italian citizens, and carry dual citizenship. My daughter, the youngest, also did much of her studying in Rome, same univeristy. She will be graduating here in Texas this May. Both of them speak, read, and write in Italian. I guess this could be called a “happy accident”. Had we not gone on that pilgrimage, we probably wouldn’t have become dual citizens, and ever known of the beauty of the country that our family came from. I smiling thinking about it!!!

    Hmm I am sure I have had an accidental experience while traveling but I cannot think of any right at the moment. I am sure I will wake up tomorrow with a remember when moment.

    The pasta looks amazing. We have been talking about making our own pasta here but haven’t gotten all the things we need. Overall I am sure you had an amazing time.

    It was great fun making the pasta with you. Maybe the next time my granddaughter’s will be able to help too. I think they would love it. Building memories for the next generation. Gina
