Hello! my name is Italia Patterson and I live in a small town in Uncasville, Connecticut. I share my life with my husband George and our beloved pets Cleo- 5 years old Tuxedo female kitty, Geo- 5 years old male Shit-zu multicolored and last but certainly not least my hairy hotdog and love of my life Sheeba-6 year old female long haired dachshund black/red. I will be posting pictures of my fur-babies soon. Our four adult children are all grown and gone but live here in Connecticut along with our three amazing grandchildren. We see each other as often as our busy schedule will allow. There will be more about them and their escapades and adventures as they grow. Aside from blogging– WOW! I couldn’t wait to say that for the first time- I have been a Registered Nurse in Connecticut for nearly 25 years and have loved every minute of it! My life centers around my family, home, cooking, crafting, jewelry design and other creative outlets. I love to garden and enjoy kayaking and travel. I have lots to share and hope we together can create an environment of sharing between us. I look forward to your comments and stories too.
