A quick trip to Rome -- some highlights and tips
I remember overhearing a conversation between two men at the post office when we first moved to Byron.

Italians invented espresso and cappuccino. Fantastic! Humanity will be grateful forever. Then we stopped there. Why is it that every other country capitalized on our inventions, and now have more choices when getting a hot drink than the average Italian could ever dream of? Our range is limited to espresso, espresso macchiato, cappuccino and caffelatte. ...

‘Obstgarten’ or ‘Orchard’ (depending on where you live) by Haba. It’s one of our longtime favourite games for toddlers and young children. A game where you play as a team — there are no winners or losers. @courtneyadamo shared this photo on her stories last week and received so many comments from people who grew up playing this game. It seems we’re not the only fans! If you have other board game recommendations, feel free to share below!
