I needed to go back and to find a piece of my heart. It was still there where I knew it would be, I just needed to go back and find it again.
Rejoin the jigsaw.
Seventeen years it took me to get back to Italy. Seventeen years that had been filled with life, a deliciously full life, but now it was time to go back. This time I would be returning not alone as I had done in previous times, but with a family. My family that was ready to embrace all things Italian.
And weave a little of Italy into their heart beat.
