a Jersey girl through and through having grown up in the northwest corner of
the state where green valleys are tucked between mountain ranges and livestock
and crops rule instead of concrete and stop lights (we do have them, of
course). But make no mistake, my favorite place is the Jersey shore. Nothing
beats its sun-drenched beaches, rolling surf and
found-no-where-else-in-the-world boardwalk where the sizzle of grilled Italian
sausage and pepper sandwiches tries to drown out the pinging bells from games
I’m not writing or working, I like to garden and decorate (I have a lapsed
Certified Interior Decorator certificate). I am a dark chocolate addict (who
isn’t) and a fan of classic/hard rock (from Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Aerosmith
to Breaking Benjamin, Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown). I’m obsessed with
the movies Young Frankenstein, The Blues Brothers and The Princess Bride (which
says a lot about my sense of humor) and anything starring the late Paul Walker.
When the New York Rangers aren’t playing hockey, I like to watch NCIS and anything
on the History Channel, and while I can and do cook and bake (I am Italian
after all), I am extremely messy and have decided, at this point in my life,
that it’s entirely overrated. Thank goodness my husband isn’t fussy and our
nest is empty.
you for visiting. I hope you come back soon. The coffee pot is always on.
