OUR ITALIAN EXPERIENCE
Beginning with our move to Italy in 2002, we have kept a daily journal of our lives here. Updated often, you can follow our adventures along with a growing list of friends.
The current month is available in the journal. For past months, click on Journal Archives to find previous dates.
Our gardens, our crops, our friends and neighbors, little Sofia, our adventures, our projects, are all here.
Forgive us. We are proud grandparents of Marissa and Nicole, twins born in June 2004. These little angels live in California with their parents, our son Terence and his wife, Angie. So occasionally we'll slip in a few photos of them as well.
During most of the year, our lives revolve around the garden: what to plant, what to harvest, what to eat, how to care for our boxwood and roses and other plants.
We're happy to share a selection of our favorite recipes. Some are from cookbooks, some are from successful experiments in the kitchen, and some are passed on by friends and neighbors.
Have some fun with words, stories, adventures and lessons on Italian life.
PLACES TO VISIT
Included here is a little history lesson of the Etruscans, who settled here centuries before Christ and whose civilization was very important in the history of Central Italy.
We'll be including ideas for day trips from our area, with descriptions of actual jaunts we've taken and places we've stopped along the way.
