This is me enjoying Carnivale in Venice. Beneath the stunning mask is a loving wife, mother of two adult children, yoga loving, picture-taking, woman in the prime of life. I prefer talking about cleaning more than actually doing it. I work out at the gym every day but lack a six pack (other than the one in the refrigerator). I never found a chocolate bar I didn’t love. I acquired a love for red wine even though I once thought wine coolers and Boone’s Farm were just fine. I can’t eat cheese without a cracker (it’s a texture thing)! I still say I am 5′ 10″ even though I’ve officially shrunk 1/2″. I weigh less than my driver’s license states and I think my natural hair color is auburn (I much preferred the strawberry blonde of my youth)! I haven’t worked in three years – and counting – but can’t bring myself to admit that I am retired and hardly fit the “housewife” mold so how about pampered princess?
