Yes.  That’s a pilgrim hat on Italy.

And I know what you’re thinking.  The perspective is off.  I know.  The hat is supposed to be more tilted.  The toe of the boot also sank into the cinnamon abyss.  It turns out pumpkin pie filling and raw crust are an unforgiving medium.

Why hearts?  Because the original composition lacked balance, and I wanted to give Italy some Thanksgiving love.

Yes.  I have too much time on my hands, but I do this every year.  Last year’s swirly fall leaf design was a little classier though.  Cherry pies suffer a similar fate around Christmas.

This year we are thankful for our family and friends and all the support and kind words we have received regarding our transcontinental move.  We love you all!  And of course we are also extremely thankful for the opportunity and experience of being here in Rome, it’s a dream come true for us.

Thanksgiving in Rome

I’m also thankful that our grocery store shocked me by actually stocking Granny Smith apples so I could make this little number.

Have a happy and warm Thanksgiving everyone!
