Today is the first day of the launch of my new blog “Champagne and Diamonds”. 

So, let me begin by telling you a few things about me that may explain or justify some of the things I post as time goes on.

I am a woman, a wife and a mother.  I have a wonderful husband, Jeff, who is a successful architect here in Naples, FL, designing the world around us.  I have a wonderful 37 year old mentally challenged son, Ryan, who lives in a group home in Pennsylvania. 

We have an adorable little dog, Bella, who keeps us moving.  She has so much energy.  She has her own page on this website where she expresses her thoughts and feelings.  Be sure to check it out sometime.  

My husband and I love romance and romantic things.  He’s the most romantic husband I’ve ever had  And I’ve had three, so I think I should know.  We love to hold hands, kiss and …oh, do we love to dance!

We also love to travel.   My favorite destination is Paris.  I have been there many times, It’s like a 2nd home to me.  In fact, I’m an avid Francophile, meaning I love all things French.  I speak French fairly well.  My husband likes to tell people I speak fluently, but I think he just thinks I can speak fluently because when we’ve been in France, I’ve never had a problem communicating in French. 

We try to take at least one big trip every year, as well as a few small ones.  I’ll be sure to share the highlights of our travels as we wander this path together.  In September, we’re heading to Santorini Greece, so that should be exciting to read about. 

As a woman, many think I am the stereotypical “girly-girl”, loving all things girly, feminine, sparkly and glitzy.   I must admit.—-I am and I’m quite proud of it. 

I don’t follow sports, but I do enjoy watching the Superbowl commercials.  

In the past, I never had an interest in politics.   That all changed when Donald Trump was elected President.  I should tell you right now that I didn’t vote for him, am not a fan of him or his administration.  I believe his entire family and administration are fraught with scandal, fraud and lies.  I firmly support having him impeached and/or removed from office.  So if we don’t share political views, time for you to move on. 

Otherwise, stay and feel free to share your thoughts.  

I look forward to sharing my life stories and thoughts with you.
