Three Little Angels | A Letter

“I never knew love so strong until I met you.” A.J 2012

It was two years before I could make it back to my home country. Two years of wishing, and needing your little hearts and hands around my body.

Surprises are meant to surprise. And I sure showed you. Continue reading

My Home and Native Land

Where in the world is Jennifer Avventura?

In the land of horseshoes, timbits and drive thru’s.

Oh yes, after 38 months abroad, I’ve come home to surprise my family. And what a wonderful surprise it was. I will never forget their faces when they saw me in that first moment. Priceless.

For lunch today, again, I will be going to Tim Horton’s. Yum! I’m an addict when it comes to Timmy’s. I’ll be having the soup of the day with an everything bagel loaded with cream cheese. Then I will wash it down with a few timbits! Life is grand.

I still haven’t a digital camera, but am working on buying a new one.

My posts for the next month will be infrequent to say the least. But I am still here, hear me ROAR! And I am reading your posts.

Wishing you all a wonderful and safe holiday season.

Happy Holidays from Jennifer Avventura.

Something to Celebrate

Three years ago today I boarded flight #16. Toronto to Rome. From Rome I boarded another flight to my home, Sardegna. I can’t believe three years have already passed. It seems just like yesterday I was kissing my loved ones good-bye. The person I was then is not the same person I am now. I have grown-up. My life far and different from those I left.  Continue reading

3 Little Birds


Golden locks upon my floor.
Ice cream prints
on the sliding glass door.
Salt water kisses
is something I wishes,
to bring you back just
for one more.
Bee-sting hand and
scraped up knee
Sweet young smiles
that set me free.
Battle wounds from
the oceans door,
wondering now
how you could take much more.
Young at heart this I see,
can one of you come
 and call on me?
Your shadows gone
floats over sea,
and all your memories
remain with me.
