Happy Birthday Nonna Annie

Today, August 9th is my grandmother, Nonna Annie’s birthday. She would have been 116 years old. This feisty Italian woman had such a major impact on my life. Animals adored her. She spoke their language! She knew all the cats in the neighborhood and many came to visit her each day. She fed the birds, grew fresh veggies, herbs and wild flowers in her backyard. She was a force of nature. I miss her terribly and not a day goes by that I do not think of her.

Thank you Nonna Annie for all you have done. xoxoxoxox
