Throwback Thursday: Little Messer


This week's throwback is brought to you by some serious high-waisted jeans!! Here is the five year old me with my dad, nonna and two older brothers back when we lived in Florence, Italy. I look at this picture & my heart hurts from how much I miss my dad. This is exactly how I remember him. I feel sad but then I remember the beautiful gift I've been given of his little namesake, currently fast asleep upstairs...and I am so thankful. <3 

I look like a messer here, kind of reminds me of another little girl I know...*cough* Emilia *cough*! Have a lovely Thursday guys...I hope you're all well. I am really excited to be spending this weekend with the other members of my family that aren't in this picture! My mum and two little sisters :)

    1. Oh My, you took the words right out of my mouth. This post stirred emotions in myself. Anna and her family are what the world needs more of. They are doing a lovely job at leaving a wonderful footprint in this world. Nice day! - Love and regards - Darlene

  20. I lost my dad to cancer too when I was about 12, it hurts incredible when I see his face pictured but when looking at my four kids I kind of constantly see similarities that make me happy as it means he lives on somehow..I love the way you raise your children,Anna, so patient and kind

  23. My Dad wanted to have a son (and had three daughters), later he dreamt about a grandson (and had two granddaughters). Last year, four years after Dad's death, I gave birth to his first grandson.
    I often think how happy Dad would be I he could meet Michael, my son.
