Great information and resources for #CLL patients and their caregivers— including a list of recommended questions to ask doctors! Did I mention it's free?

Excited about the new site, coming soon!
Ops! We recently switched our domain name provider and have since been experiencing difficulty. While we sort it out.. you can access the site at:
instead of the usual

We're also working on an entirely new site design with new content, so stay tuned! Grazie!

We had a whirlwind Italian weekend... first stop #TasteofItalyLA  in Downtown Los Angeles and then #LittleItalyFestaSD  in San Diego! Love to share with you (and hopefully entice you to join us next year!)

"Mettere 'mi piace' " is how you say "Like" in Italian on Facebook.

Did you know you can "mettere mi piace" on my #learnItalian  site's Facebook Page?

And that when you do, I'll share tips and tricks to learn the language as well as bits on Italian culture and travel? 

After liking, be sure to say "Ciao!" and introduce yourself!


I also have a Google+ page:

There's still availability for last-minute Christmas/New Years stays! The weather is just chilly enough to justify a scarf and hot chocolate and get into the holiday spirit… but temperate enough to enjoy the indoor-outdoor living as well as walks along the beach nearby.

I feel so lucky to call this place home…
and now we get to share our beloved 1927 cottage with designer finishes and indoor/outdoor living with others… maybe for the holidays? Check out our listing on air b&b:
Romantic & Peaceful Retreat - We are so thrilled to welcome guests to our 1927 cottage in sunny southern California.  Our first opening will be over Christmas and New Years - we invite you to make our home yours for the holidays.

We’ve created ideal spaces and a flow from indoors to out… living the California lifestyle with the doors and windows wide open to embrace the ocean breezes.

Our back garden is a private sanctuary with a stone alcove and pond and areas perfect for a romantic dinner for two, enjoying family and friends or simply retreating to read a novel—(or to write one.)

There’s a large wooden trestle table in front of the rustic stone fireplace…with a fire burning and the sound of the fountain gurgling nearby, it’s a favorite place for gathering together or spending some quiet time alone. -- see more details and reserve here:
