Ciao to all of you who LOVE Italy



About Italian Living

I'm an interior decorator from Canada. I own a design firm. I have three grown daughters who are confidant women living busy lives. I love my family my friends and my life, however, something is missing. December 3rd, my eyes open at 3:33 a.m. It's time to fulfill my lifelong dream of living in Italy..... I rent my house, pack my bags, say a final farewell to all the people I love most in this world and hop on a plane January 13th.... alone. This is my story...

    • Joe,
      How are you? What is going on in your exciting adventurous life? Are you running for president anytime soon?
      Come to Calgary the mountains will make you feel right at home.

      Our Monica is in the U.S, can you hear her giggling from where you are?

    Dear Shauna; I am very happy to be included in your blog. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious.


    • Auntie Marie,
      So good to hear from you. I think of you often, swimming, rowing, and of my visits with you when I was a child. You must tell me more about your life in B.C. I loved the picture of you after your walk in December. Mom sent it to me…
      Thinking of you
      Shauna xoxo

    My beautiful mother,

    Love, love, love it! I get tingles in my spin (and a little tear may have welled up too) reading your words and knowing that I shared some time with you in these truly surreal places you describe. Can’t wait for my next visit to my second home. xo



    • Breanne,
      Thank you for your touching response.
      Yes, we have shared many unique moments in this beautiful country. I have a heart full of stories, of our time together.
      My next one comes out tomorrow and you had a part in it.
      Missing you xoxo

    Shauna, my wife and I dream of living in Italy after a trip in 2009. Ours is on hold now for multiple reasons…but we do dream. I’m very impressed by how well you write. Your thoughts are beautifully expressed. I have another secret…I too want to start a blog….in the future…to start the story of my dream of living in Italy. Your blog is a big inspiration! Ciao! Kevin
