This week I’m inspired by Italy, particularly the Colosseum. I have been fortunate enough to have visited Italy a few times. I can’t seem to get enough of the place. I’m already itching to go back. Maybe it is my roots…although I am only 25% Italian, up until I got married, I had had an Italian last name, so I always felt very Italian. I am very proud of my Italian heritage. I love the way the Italians live. They are very family-focused and cherish the simple things in life like a great glass of vino or a plate of juicy deep fried mozzarella-stuffed zucchini blossoms….mmm. Now I’m hungry!

I have a lot more Italian inspiration on the way this week, so stay tuned!
