Today I am ONE YEAR OLD!
That means I am officially all grown up!! (Although la mia ragazza STILL calls me her baby girl ... sheeesh ....)
My barkday celebration began a day or so ago while I was still visiting my cugina (cousin) Heidi, and mia zia (aunt) and zio (uncle) in Tennessee. Heidi and I put on party hats and had some tasty, sweet yummies to kick off the festivities, and THEN, mia zia drove back with us to mia citta (my city), so we will be celebrating again today, on my official barkday!!!! Yayyyyyyy!!! I don't know what la mia ragazza and la mia zia have in store for me today, but I, Lucia, am hoping for some torta e gelato (cake and ice cream) ... mmmmmmm torta and gelato .... because I have been paying attention to what happens to my bloggie pals on their barkdays and there always seems to be torta and gelato. Do you think I'll get some, too?????? Mmmmmmmm .... I sure hope so!!!
Just look at this bellissima (absolutely beautiful!) biglietto di compleanno (birthday card) I received today from mia cara amica (my dear friend), Asta! Thank you, Asta!!!! Muahhhhhhh!!!
By the way, la mia ragazza says she feels like it is HER barkday today, too, because she has me, her best present ever! Awwwwwww .....!!!!!! As for me, my best present is all of you, dearest bloggie pals! You make my world sweeter, brighter and happier!!!! Ti amo, everybloggie!!!!
