I stole this picture from my cousin, Caroline. It's my 84 year old Nonno working in his sunflower garden, in the heat with a huge smile on his face. I like to think I get my hard-worker, busy bee gene from him via my mom. One thing I didn't get from the two of them, a green thumb. Mine is more like a shade of gray.

Regardless, I just love this picture.. hope it inspires you to have a very happy, productive Monday :)
