The Philadelphia Eagles football team.

The color blue,  hearing a cat purr, the Fall season, the deck in the Summer,  tending to flowerbeds, eating seafood, traveling to Seattle and being with family and friends

The memories of the wonderful trip I took to Italy in May 2009 with good friends. Traveled from Florence to Rome with many stops along the way. Tuscan countryside scenery was beautiful and the Vatican visit was unforgettable.  Favorite stop was Assisi.  Many historical sites to see and the St. Francis Basilica was breathtaking and so peaceful!
