Macerata Monday: Doors

Okay, so it's actually kind of really early Tuesday (as in just past midnight on Monday), but it IS Monday just a timezone away, so here you have it: Macerata Monday, installment 2.

I walk by these two doors everyday on the way up the hill from my house to the city center (I work in the city center, and it really IS an uphill walk, but that's what you get for living in a self-proclaimed "hill town"), and I especially like the one on the right. When we were looking at houses a couple of years back, we considered one really near these, a neighbor, and it was a tough call for us. We ended up happy with the house we've got, yet further down the hill. I imagine these doors with a sign above them saying "If you lived here, you'd be home by now!" Needless-to-say, I notice these doors daily, but it was just today that I stopped for a minute to take a photo. It's the things you pass daily that sometimes you forget about.

Lately it's been so sunny and warm here--how can this be February?

Sunshine in the Rain

I know it's the end of a long, busy day, and I'm tired and ready to go to bed, but I couldn't possibly go through this whole Monday without saying this one thing:

on their huge Superbowl win! I'm a very very proud Hoosier today!

The Indy Colts literally ran through Miami rain and storm to beat the Chicago Bears 29 to 17 in Superbowl XLI! I can't wait to see all of the replays and interviews and recaps and highlights, but for now it's bedtime. Colts, we here at Allora Aspetta love you and salute you, and it didn't take a superbowl to make you number one in our eyes--but still, thanks for making Indy just that much better!!
