As I thoroughly enjoy our annual trip to the motherland (Laguna Beach, California), visiting family and friends, I cannot help but be grateful for all the blessings I’ve had in my life: health, beyond happiness, a beautiful family (on both continents!), a husband who brings me joy every single day, the unconditional love of the best dog on the planet, a job I love, fabulous friends, stability, and this year an even extra special gift, baby Pietro, arriving in March.  THANK YOU!!!!
My month here is always so precious, but when the time comes, I’ll be ready to head back to my adopted home, bell’Italia.

It is also a day to say prayers, send good karma and even help those less fortunate. Please continue to send support to the villages affected by the October 25 floods in Liguria and Tuscany:
