Hello, my name is Rosa. I am a mother and grandmother and a design enthusiast. I love beautiful things and think we should treat ourselves on a daily basis by using our special glassware, linen napkins, white towels etc. I love mellow music, classic R&B, textiles...white linen, matlasse, and monograms. I love french doors and shuttered windows. I like rusty things..natural patinas, curvy furniture and crystal chandeliers. I like fine china, pink depression glass, stemmed glassware even for water. I love to shop at brocantes and flea markets to furnish my home. I love to read lots of books and I like to write a little. I love to laugh and to laugh a lot. I love for people to be comfortable in my home. I am a bon vivant...someone who lives well...not to imply that I am wealthy, but rather that I am at ease and enjoy day to day life...enjoying good food, wine, family and friends. I also believe you should never hold back a compliment. We all need that little boost in our day to day life and I believe in saying "I love you" to almost everyone.
Four sisters and a brother decided to write this book about everything from infancy to adolescence to menopause and beyond, talking about everything from pimples, Spanx, hair dyes, adulting, and yes, even hot flashes. If they have experienced it, lived through it, or wanted to die because of it, they'll share it with you.
Since that book was so much fun and a great success, they decided to write another book in the Another Round of Laughter series, calling it Kids are Not Always Angels.
They hope you enjoy the tattered tales of the devil angels who grace their lives, and remember that kids are not defined by age, but by their actions. These stories are written about kids of all ages.
While on a Caribbean Cruise and after numerous bottles of Moscato wine and several trips to the all-you-can-eat dessert bar, four sisters decided to write a book about their love affair with food and their experiences with diet disasters. With a combined 224 years of experience between the sisters, they consider themselves experts at diet failures.
