This is my first blog, dating back to 2005 - back then, Google didn't own Blogger. That's how old this blog is ^^ Mostly, on this blog you can expect a mish-mash of topics and themes, depending on what's on my mind at the time.

I was born in the city of Genoa, located in Northwestern Italy. I have traveled and grown up around the world, in areas such as Veracruz, Mexico and all over the state of Illinois, in the US. This has allowed me to learn about and be exposed to different types of cultures and people.

I live in Northeastern Illinois with my husband of 13 years, favorite adopted dog, Benny the anxious Beagle, and favorite adopted cat, Misha the sassy Calico.

I'm a trilingual communications professional with over 15 years experience managing complex projects and articulating marketing communications in the industry and not-for-profit spaces.

I'm a voracious reader and somewhat of a social media fiend. If I'm not blogging, or online, you can find me learning about one of my latest hobbies or obsessions, or walking around the neighborhood taking in some of nature's sounds and scents with Benny.

Thanks for visiting!
