This is a first for me. I am usually a pretty private person -I don't even like posting photos of my self on Facebook. Lately, however, friends and family keep telling me that with all of the precious nuggets of wisdom I like dole out I should "write something". So here I am and here is my new blog "Vivere" which in Italian means "to live" or "to be alive". Each week I will have new posts on lifestyle (recipes, travel, finances, etc.) as well as writing and of course, fashion. A shout out to freefoto.com for the awesome blog title photo. As well as "the lady" aka my Mother for helping me brainstorm on a title!
