We are on a mission to prove that two wrongs really do make a right.
Yes, it's true. Giulio and I are engaged.
This past weekend, Giulio took me to one of his favorite family spots on the Italian Riviera to propose that
I devote the rest of my life to washing his underwear we formalize our love story via holy matrimony. He distracted me with a shiny object in effort to manipulate the situation in his favor, and being the magpie that I evidently am, I surrendered. I have to admit that as a young girl, I never imagined myself engaged nor married... but now that I am, I am totally looking forward to eating bonbons on the sofa and working on really letting myself go!
Now enough about me because what I actually want to make the point to do is devote some cyberspace to celebrating the faces of my fiancé who's got enough charisma to last a lifetime.
Here is Giulio just after having devoured a Bistecca alla Fiorentina in Tuscany. It's a face quite similar to his usual look of disillusionment.
Here he is in Sri Lanka moments before he began suffering from Shigellosis. What a sport!
Most men don't like cupcakes, but Giulio is avid for sweets and crappy television, just like me. It's important to share common interests, 'specially if you're gonnna get married.
Giulio looking dispossessed of the mustache he never had. (Except for the frothy kind.)
Giulio fearing the outcome of the water hitting his hair, and being without a blowdryer and product.
Giulio's puerile behavior, a blight on a towel swan, and a moment that will ruin his future career in politics forever.
Giulio with his best friend, who shares his passion for fine whiskey and apathy.
Giulio honing his kitchen skills with the same fervor he devotes to honing mine. (imperative)
Giulio pretending he's not absolutely terrified of bugs.
And finally, my favorite face of my fiancé, for all the intelligible reasons.
I believe that I'm a lucky girl, though my social circle might contest I've been given exactly what I deserve- a man wearing a hat that advertises "quality semen".
