Vive Rossini !!!!!
Today Thomas and I went to Knoxville to celebrate the 11th annual Rossini Festival… It’s The Italian Opera and an international street fair….
Seeing how my sweet handsome husband is Italian 🙂 I am so excited to share this with My Thomas!!!!!
We walked the streets, viewing all the amazing artisans …. Taking a break for an incredible Wine Tasting!!!!! We tasted 6 different Italian Reds called the MacDaddy Italian Collection… They were Fabulous!!!!
Then off for more strolling the streets and listening to the Unique And Powerful Vocals of The Italian Opera, Absolutely Amazingly Beautiful!!!
Ok so now I have been smelling the aromas of great foods, it is necessary to partake, lol… I tried, for the first time; a Greek Chicken Gyro with Souvlaki Sauce… Wow, Wow, Wow… I will learn to make these babies!!!!
We ate dinner at a French Creperie, I had a pizza crepe.. Filled with mozzarella, pepperoni, Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette.. Yummy!!!!!
We then shopped around to get a great memento for our first Italian festival together…
We are now finishing off our evening with a romantic stroll thru The Worlds Fair Park…
What a perfect day today has been celebrating my husbands heritage with him and enjoying some quality ( and much needed) together time!!!!!
