So when I managed to go out during the ten-minute rain break, I was pretty happy. I got my veggies and was heading back inside my warm home to make dinner, but then I looked to my left. There's a tiny vineyard (really, just a grapevine) next to my house—oh, how very cliche of you, Italy!—and I've been meaning to take pictures of it for the past year we've lived here. Only I haven't. At all. I've felt guilty about not taking advantage of something so beautiful, so yesterday I did something about it.
The rain picked up again in the form of a soft drizzle, and I almost decided to forgo my idea and just go back inside, but then kicked myself for being threatened by a little water. I moved across the soft, mossy ground, and felt water from the tall grass seep into my TOMS. The grapevine is unkept, exploding with overgrown branches and leaves, but I managed to find a patch where the grapes were visible on the vine and I took a picture with my iPhone.
I spend so much of my time cooped up in my house that I forget what gorgeous sites are literally right outside my door. I live in Italy and sometimes I completely forget how lucky I am. I'm going to try, even if it is just with my iPhone, to take more simple snapshots like this more often.
