like mother, like daughter

This is my mom.

She is a most wonderous human being. 

Exhibit A: 
On a Sunday evening family walk, I see her a little ways up ahead...
doing pirouettes in the road. 

Like I said, 
wonderous. 

Perhaps that's where I get this from.
(Wedding day twirling hugs and paintings by me.)

A twirl a day keeps the sads away.

"A twirl a day keeps the sads away". Brilliant! I'm always saying to my husband, "pick me up!". For some reason it always cheers me right up :) Perhaps we will start incorporating some twirling!

So sweet! :) I love your little saying at the end! I will be using that. Twirls truly are the best. Especially in perfect fairly skirts and dresses and especially when they involve hugs!

Beautiful, I love your paintings!
I'm afraid to say, though, that your writing in Italian is wrong...you should have written "Ti vorrò bene per sempre", or "Ti amerò per sempre" = I'm going to love you forever
