So, I was in on a major musical project and I co wrote a song called ”Waiting for Miracles” and a couple of the other songs on the album were written while visiting Venice.
La Befana has been an Italian tradition since before the 13th Century and is derived from a religious background rather than a modern and popular culture such as Babbo Natale ‘Santa Claus’
For the longest time, I have been wanting to take my son to Venezia.. Being that it is the first of January, the first day of a New Year, I thought why not cross off a couple of firsts for Luca James and I too..
Happy New Year friends ! ! ! ! ! !

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.
If I had a dime for everytime a person told me they think the “Northern” Italians are cold and not friendly, I’d be rich.
Contrary to what most people think of the Italians from the North; everyone is friendly and warm.
And no, I don’t know those three! Haha!! Happy Friday friends!!
