Our family has always been run by our matriarch, our grandmother, Pie. After her passing in August, we knew we were not ready to spend out first Thanksgiving without her. So my grandfather treated us to a trip to remember to Italy for the week.
Anne, Daniel, Mary Beth, Hannah and I started our trip in Venice and then headed to Tuscany to meet up with our parents and Big Frank.
