Do you remember your first time?

your first ride down the block on a bike without training wheels
the first meal you cooked in your own apartment
signing the mortgage on your first home
planting the first garden in your first home
your first beer
receiving your first pay check
your first time behind the wheel without your dad sitting next to you
your first road trip with friends

remember that feeling? Yeah, awesome....choir of angels awesome. 

Today, I experienced the mother of all firsts....

sticking a fork in the earth and finding

a potato.

Yeah, I know.  Just like all the other firsts in one's life (except for maybe one, that I can think of) the experience has diminishing returns the more you do it.  But for today, I'm going to bask in the afterglow.


  1. I know exactly how it feels. I did the same on my blog; sorry in my garden ;-)) Nothing beats that feeling and it is nice to share.

  2. I hope you still have some of these cherished potatos. I can try them than?! I'm finally coming to Liguria. Can*t wait to see you! Mila
