In my college years I took a semester to study abroad in beautiful Florence, Italy. Living there has shaped my love of food…and yes, WINE…forever. My favorite food while there HAD TO BE the Fileno Al Mirtilio (Blueberry Steak) at Acqua al 2 restaurant in Florence. I dream of it to this day. During my time there I lived with eight girls, none of whom I had any connection to previously, and now years later we have been traveling from the ends of the earth for each other’s weddings.
Our latest adventure took us on a road trip through Colorado. From Denver and its amazing mile-high sustainable restaurants (YUM!) to the Great Sand Dunes all the way down to Durango and back. I’d love to say my favorite memory here was a Tim Tebow sighting but alas…the magazine covers in EVERY STORE had to suffice… it was an adventure from start to…well, finito! Now, that’s Amore!
