My heart, it is full with the visit of my daughter. My American daughter, Robbie Jordan! I am Roberto Fracasso, her Italian father, but her mother never told us about each other. Grazie a Robbie's persistence, she discovered me, and now I never let her go.
She came to visit us after Christmas here in Pisa. What a reunion we had, if you can call it that when we never met before. She met my lovely wife, Maria, my adult children, and even my little grandson.
And what a feast we had for Capodanno! Here we celebrate abundance on New Year’s day.

I'm so happy she came to visit. Now Maria and I, we plan a visit to Robbie in the spring. We will eat pancakes at her restaurant and explore that beautiful part of the United States, Brown County, Indiana, where I met her mama Jeanine so many years ago.
What is your favorite New Year's food? Maddie Day will give away a copy of FLIPPED to one commenter!
