La Dolce Vita Series: Ferragosto!

Obvious, I know. But for my friends in Toronto that don't know, August 15th is an Italian holiday called Ferragosto. I'm not sure about the history of why it is and all that jazz, I just know that pretty much all Italians migrate to the "sea". I actually like that term.... "We're going to the sea". Growing up in Toronto, we don't really say that since we just have lakes and, what we like to think are, beaches.  Ferragosto is something that I am REALLY looking forward to next summer. To take off and go to the sea with my man and maybe some of his crazy friends with the perfect excuse to relax and maybe get a lil to partyin' time on the beach...if I can keep up.

This past weekend, il mio ragazzo (my boyfriend) snapped some quick pics on his phone for me to see what I was missing. They took a short drive to the Adriatic coast to a little place called Milano Marittima in Cervia. They spent the weekend drinking, eating, laying on the beach, dancing, drinking, sleeping, eating, oh and did I say drinking? Wow. Must have been tough. I don't know about you, but that's my kinda August 15th. Ah, the sweet, sweet holidays....

13 days left in Toronto.....but who's counting?
