Happy Valentine's Day!
When I first met my husband, I played hard to get. He'd send sweet messages like, “I'm looking at the moon thinking of you.” I'd reply, “I'm not the romantic type.” I thought if I put on a tough shell and if he really liked me, he'd work harder to win me over. Well, it worked; we've been together more than 20 years now! The truth is, I am the romantic type! I love musicals, candlelight dinners and looking for heart-shaped clouds. So, in the 02/2022 newsletter in honor of Saint Valentine, you'll find some romance as well as style and travel tips for your next visit to Milan and Lake Como.  
Feel free to browse the site, send me a quick question or request a custom itinerary for your next Milan & Lake Como trip.

Wishing you all the best,

Women’s empowerment is not about career advancement or earning more money; it’s about leadership, taking risks and succeeding against the odds.
