happy friday

IMG_6585

Happy Friday! This week was really stressful so I enjoyed spending some time with my parents (eating comfort food). Tomorrow I’ll travel back to Milan and spend a relaxed weekend before another busy week and traveling to the US on Thursday. I’m really starting to get nervous about our project (but in a good way), there is still a ton of things to do but I’m just thinking in “baby steps“, that always helps me…!

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Blooming winter roses in my mom’s (wonderful) garden

New favorite scarf: I just love the print! available at H&M

My mom’s apple tart… I is so good that I finished it for breakfast the day after

Happy weekend!
