I can’t say no to Italian food. Dipping warm bread in oil. The al-dente handmade noodles. Luscious red wine. The scent of sauteed garlic with onions. Anything with balsamic vinegar.

Besides working & getting settled in, I’ve been extremely preoccupied with galavanting around my new … More Because who doesn’t love guest posting?!
