I miss Italy.Â Maybe we will go back some day.Â If your family and Arianna’s familyÂ ever decide to visit Chicago, please let me know.Â We would love to show you around . . . and even make a wonderful dinner for you.Â By the way, I made two torte di pere for my friends at work.Â They absolutely loved it.Â Both cakes were completely gone after an hour.Â I will be making them for dessert for Thanksgiving and Christmas too.Â Please give Arianna our love.Â I so enjoyed speaking Italian with her, even though I had to ask you for so many words.Â ……. Arrivederci! Barbara“
