as most of you know by now, I'm a Texan, born & bred.
& I adore being a Texan, and a Houstonian.
Texas is an iconic state with so many wonderments,
mostly the people and the amazing spirit and friendship you will find here.
however, I'm also a bit Italian, and each time I visit Italy I come away loving her more
than ever. by this time I've been almost everywhere in Italy.
& seriously, I love every part of the country.
but, I love the lake country and the Amalfi Coast the most.
below, a vision of the lake country,
unlike anything anywhere else in the world.
& this is me,
photos of me requested by one of my dear readers,
because she always posts pics of herself & her precious family...
so here goes:
