Five Facts About Me:
I am married to a wonderful man who is my best friend and truly has an amazing heart, we’ve loved each other though everything, good and bad! We have two very beautiful married daughters whom I love endlessly and try not to drive crazy most days.
Just over the past three yrs my oldest daughter has given us two adorable grandchildren,Bryce & Paige. They are the light in my world and I adore being their grandma/Mimi ❤️
My love for cooking has been with me since I was young. I have such wonderful memories of my Mom, my aunts and mostly my Adoring Italian Grandmothers in their kitchens making amazing dishes…they are my inspirations💕 I hope I will be remembered by my grandchildren in the same way.
After 40yrs. of being a nurse, working daily and taking care of everyone else, I decided to retire! I can take my time to cook extra special things, do some decorating & crafting and even take care of my husband properly. I’ve been traveling a lot to visit my girls and darling grand babies, my parents and even my sister & her family, I’m just having such fun! That’s how the birth of my blog came to be; my kids came up with the idea and everyone encourages me everyday!
I’m a dog lover! I’ve had wonderful dogs all my life, as a little girl and as an adult with children. Recently, I lost to illness my Corgi/Bassett mix, Franklin! I rescued him from our local SPCA many years ago but I’ve always said that he really rescued me, he was my campanion as our family went through lots of changes like every family does as time goes by. Miss you Frankie❤️
