Hey, you guys! Am I dreaming?! Is Spring Break here? I have been waiting for Spring to be here for a very long time. Is it just me, or does it seem like this winter has lasted forever? After so many cloudy days, I’m ready to see the sun shine again. I’m ready to resume body surfing at the beach. I’m ready to play with my fur baby, Claudio, by the water. Only God knows how much I have been missing the sunshine and the warm weather.

Okay, now let’s switch gears! As many of you already know, last summer, while I was running, I injured my right knee. As a result, I ended up having a surgery. Before and while I was in the hospital, I had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful doctors and nurses. In my opinion, doctors and nurses are some of the most hardworking professionals out there. They truly dedicate their lives to helping us, and heal those who are sick and injured.

Sadly, not everyone appreciates doctors and surgeons. We often take for granted what they do for us. When I was in the hospital, I felt compelled to write an article about my surgery
experience to stress once again that they truly are angels. I’m happy to report that my article has been published. I hope you enjoy it!



Running around Austin, Texas!

Shopping at Domain!

La mia Juve ha vinto le ultime 12 partite di campionato!  Un altro due a zero, dopo quello di pochi giorni fa contro l’Udinese. La Juve continua  la marcia in campionato. Ecco i ragazzi felicissimi a  correre in campo per festeggiare un’altra vittoria in Serie A! Spero che possiamo  vincere di nuovo un altro scudetto; poi si vedra’. Fino alla fine! Forza Juve! <3










Hello, world! I hope everyone is having a great week!

I did some shopping this morning, mostly for hair care products, because winter is tough on both our skin and our hair! During the winter, I noticed that the heat indoors can strip all the moisture from my hair.

I can’t wait to do a review on this hair mask I found!




On Sunday, in South Texas, we all had a taste of summer. The sky was blue, the sun was shining and the temperature reached above 60 degrees. On days like that, we like to take Claudio for long walks, and he
loves it. As his mommy, I love to observe how he is learning about his surroundings.

I can’t believe how fast the time goes by. My little guy is already 8 months old. His naps are getting shorter, he does not like his puppy food anymore, and he is learning how to steal things around the house and hide them in his bed to chew on.


Claudio has also lost most of his puppy teeth, except for two in the front of his mouth. The doctor said those will need to be surgically removed in the summer.

This was a short update. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Until next time,


Hello, friends!

It has been awhile since my last blog post. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My husband, Patrick, and I decided not to cook the traditional turkey this year, and instead opted for a ham with fresh green beans, bacon, mashed potatoes, and a salad. Of course, the pumpkin pie was amazing.  I just can’t believe that another holiday season is here.

How many of you did Black Friday shopping?  I had a terrific time shopping online. From comforters to makeup, I had a great time. I’m not ready to shop in a crowd. I’m still trying to regain my balance after the surgery.

I would like to extend a big “thank you” to my beautiful Jennifer for adding me to a private group on Facebook for writers. This group is called “The Binders”.  I’m honored and thrilled to be a part of a great community of writers.

Since my surgery, I have been super busy with PT. During my free time, I’m trying to finish my new article, which I will share more details about later.  Rehabilitation is going well. I am now able to bend my knee without being reminded by my family members and physical therapist to do so.  The leg is still stiff, and it will take some time to be limber again.

We did a photo shoot the other day for the blog. As you can see, I’m wearing a casual Juventus shirt and sweat pants. I’m hoping to wear all my pretty boots by the holidays. My entire outfit is available on the Juventus store online. Also, yesterday I made my favorite seafood pasta!

Today, I made this delicious peach pie! Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend! XoXo



“Allegria”! Come diceva Mike Bongiorno! Ci sei mancato, sei finalmente arrivato. Eccolo qua, se qualcuno non se ne fosse ancora accorto, è arrivato l’inverno. Here we go, winter is here! The temperatures are dropping in South Texas, and it feels nice and cold. That super yummy hot chocolate is back in season. Enjoy this beautiful time, with your family and friends! Xx
