It had been on my bucket list for some time to take a cooking class, especially while being here in Italy, I knew I couldn’t leave without having done one. While researching different places to take a cooking course, I was introduced to Bon Appetour through a friend. Bon Appetour is a food sharing experience in which you are typically welcomed into a home of a local. The host then prepares a meal for you, as if you are in a restaurant. There is another option in which you can choose a cooking course where you make the meal together! There is also wine tasting available and other unique dining options for those that want a different dining experience.
It is hard to imagine but it has now been almost 6 months since I created a community here in Rome called Rome Bloggers. The Rome Bloggers group meets once a month either to attend a presentation on a specific topic or just a networking event. Here is a sneak peek of the next meet-up happening in a week and a half.
If anyone would have told me 4 years ago I would be living in a land far, far away with a guy that just….gets me…I would have never believed them. My dating relationship with Jared, which just turned 4 on 2/9/17, is the longest relationship I have ever had with anyone (dating wise). I haven’t even worked at a single company for that long, which is probably rare for someone my age.
There isn’t much else to it, besides that we kind of met by chance. He, originally from Ohio, and me, being from South Carolina, both decided it was a good idea to call Miami home for a while at separate times of our lives…and that is how we met. In the Sunshine State. Little Cuba. The Venice of the Americas. And I am forever grateful for that one November night that we crossed paths in 2012…
