Having Antonio away is always an exercise in gratitude for me.
Luca got sick (strep throat) the day he left so it was long days & long nights of trying to make him as comfortable as possible on my own. Feeling much better now... I wanted to do something special with him so we headed to the orchard. Fresh air, animals, cider & color!
We even got a good picture...
We continued the fun later that night at an annual ghost stories in the woods event. Spooky, but still manageable for us both. (I'm as big of a scaredy cat as him) Ha!
