Fashionable Opinions




I've been told Sofia is becoming very opinionated these days. One day she insisted on wearing sandals and Daniele said, "are you sure you want to wear those, they look weird with a coat." So she responded," are you sure you want to wear those shoes Papa'?" "I think the brown ones are better." She keeps us on our toes! Miss this lil girl!

We Spend A Lot of Time Sitting at the Bay

"Sitting' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah"

Sitting at the bay with no dock in sight! Beautiful day nonetheless.

A Special Lunch At Plant Food And Wine in Venice California

On April 11, 2019 Shared a phenomenal eating adventure with my friend Sherri>  We drove to Venice California mid morning to a fabulous gourmet vegan restaurant on Abbot Kinney blvd. Called "Plant Food and Wine". The food was visually stunning, the tastes fantastic. The outdoor patio dining area is magical. What a treat for us both to share this day and this food.   Sherri thank you so much for sharing this experience with me. Truly a special, unforgettable day.

A Day In Little Tokyo with the Family

I had a great time in little Tokyo with my family on Sunday April 14, 2019 We tried a Japanese style fried chicken restaurant, popped into our favorite "Japangeles" hip clothing store, drooled over yummy desserts, browsed at the local bookstore and had fun in the bustling heart of J-town. Ended the day with a wonderful Japanese Opera production of Madame Butterfly at the Aratani Theater.
