Local Artisans that I adore ~ Donata Zan

Well, what a whirlwind this past month has been for me and my little family. We have been sick for the past month and finally I got answers to why my son is always so sick with the help of a private doctor, that being said, I wasn’t able to be online much as if any of you who have children know that when they are sick, you don’t have much free time and when they finally sleep,well you are pretty destroyed too. 

Anyhow, I did have a chance to have a tea break with the lovely Donata Zan, owner of Acqua di Vetro.
The lovely Donata Zan :) Captivating beauty!

An extraordinary experience

A year ago today, we were in a 16th Century villa shooting a commercial for an Italian insurance company based out of Verona.

It was a lovely experience. Something we will always cherish. Great memories were made that November day.

Here are a few photos I took of the inside of the Villa.

Friendships were also made

Oh the stories that Nonna, who was at the time 99 years old told..

All in all it was a great experience. We made new friendships, learned about the Italian life and when our son is older he’ll have this video to look back on.
