Gratefully Gratefully *8*

2 Mar

We’re just back from an amazing week in Morocco.  We spent time hiking in the mountains, eating the most delicious Moroccan meals, visiting ancient Kasbahs, driving through the ever-changing mountainous landscapes, speaking French, building sandcastles on the beach and even surfing.  It was a full week to say the least.  And even arriving back in a freezing cold and rainy Italy at midnight didn’t dampen our high spirits.  Many family memories were made that will last a lifetime.  And obviously for that I’m extremely grateful.  As you’ll see, my grateful post is pretty Morocco inspired this week.

I’m grateful for…

…Moroccan olives.  I miss them already

…this neighbourhood outside of Agadir with painted trees in bright and cheerful colours and patterns.

I wish you all a lovely week ahead!

    Are the olive really that large and that yellow?

      Those are the preserved lemons in the background! Their lemons are actually tiny.

    Awesome trees! And those olives look super yummy! Although Italy does have some tasty ones too, right?
