As a woman who has always seen herself as very independent, I feel like I have a great deal to share. I won’t mention my age because it’s just a number, but just to hint, I have ten grandchildren ranging in ages 14-24. Most are teenagers and it’s like becoming an empty nester for the second time as they grow up and move into their own lives. I am fifty percent Italian physically but one hundred percent mentally. I am passionate about family, food, wine, and travel. So those are the things I will be writing about. I will also be posting some recipes that I hope you will enjoy. One day I hope to publish a cookbook that I am currently putting together. Check out my blog here!
