So, this is us; shopping in Florence for Dawn's birthday.
Here we are with friends, having dinner for Dawn's birthday in the restaurant I am featuring in my cookbook (shameless plug) about Tuscany.
Now you know who we are, or what we look like anyway. We were the best of friends, brought together by our sons, who were the best of friends, and now we are family. Our friendship has been a collaboration of creative minds and endeavors, hungrily searching the world for inspirations for our never satisfied souls. We have learned together, or more likely I have learned from Dawn, that our lives, both the ups and the downs, are nothing more than building blocks for our creativity. To be a friend of Dawn's has pushed me farther creatively than I knew was possible, and for that I am eternally grateful. So, enough sap, we laugh a lot together, we cry a little and mostly we push each other as far as we can to be the best we can all the time. This is our journey.
