Welcome to my blog, Bacio da Boston. If you remember me previously as Con Piccoli Piedi—welcome back! If not, here's a bit about me:
I’m a 22 year old postgraduate working and living in beautiful, spirited Boston—adjusting to “adult life” while trying not to waste my paychecks on good (and bad) food. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., I work in digital media as a social media editor; but in the surrounding hours, I like to explore the city's must-see spots, spend time with friends, drink wine, and fantasize about my next meal.
I am completely obsessed with my Italian heritage, which prompted me to spend the majority of 2016 studying and eating my way through the glorious motherland. Here, I'll be doing a lot of reminiscing and retelling of that time spent in Italy. I’ll also probably complain about how much I’d like to return, and how annoyingly difficult it is to obtain a dual citizenship.
Traveling is near and dear to my heart (as it is for most people) which is why I decided to relive the glory days and write about it. As soon as I pay back my dang student loans, I hope to travel a lot more, as I am absolutely addicted to the way it makes me feel. Other things near and dear to my heart: eating, voicing my opinions, sharing stories about my culture, making people laugh, stumbling through the Italian language, writing about real struggles and relating to my readers.
Oh, and I love to tell a good Nonna story.
I throw myself into weird and random situations (sorry mom), and I like to talk to strangers on the street. I try to find beauty in the everyday, and I try not to take myself too seriously.
If any of this sounds like your cup of tea—bottoms up my friends.
Feel free to reach out to me with questions or stories (or wine suggestions) at conpiccolipiedi at gmail dot com.
Grazie per la visita!
"Con Piccoli Piedi" translates to "with little feet," in Italian. Con Piccoli Piedi was a name that I chose in order to represent potential. With the gift of our two feet, we can explore, discover, and learn about the world around us.
Since moving to Boston, I've changed the blog's name to "Bacio da Boston" which translates to a kiss from Boston. I find that my surroundings influence the way I feel, and the way I live.
Unless otherwise noted, the images on this site were taken by myself at various locations and occasions!
A special thanks to my late Nonna Olga, my inspiration.
