BLOGGING GRANDMOTHERS SERIES 3 WITH MARISA FROM ALL OUR WAY
The 22nd blogging grandmother to be featured in the Blogging Grandmothers Series 3 is Marisa.
NAME OF YOUR BLOG: ALL OUR WAY
WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE: My family! My heart seems to burst with love and pride when they’re around.
YOUR FAV SNACK: Finger fruits — like grapes, cherries, watermelon and cantaloupe chunks. I really enjoy snacking on fruits.
WHAT QUOTE APPEALS TO YOU MORE THAN ANY OTHER: Every journey begins with one step.
FUNNY OR SCARY MOVIE: Funny!
POOL, LAKE, OCEAN, OR NONE: Ocean. The water speaks to me, it has a calming effect, even when the water is turbulent.
DO YOU MONETIZE YOUR BLOG: Yes I do. I love blogging and being able to earn money is a bonus.
HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE OR PARTNER: I met him in my last year in college. I tell the story in my About page. In the beginning we were attracted to each other but didn’t want to admit it. Next January we’ll celebrate our 50th anniversary.
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAN ON BLOGGING: As long as I can. I love my readers and all the friends that I’ve made. To me it’s fulfilling and it allows me to be creative with writing and photography.
FAV TYPE OF MUSIC: Smooth Jazz, opera, just about anything but Rap and some of the modern stuff coming out.
DOGS OR CATS: We’ve had both. We don’t have any pets now — we travel too much and it wouldn’t be fair to pets.
IF PAST LIVES ARE REAL, WHAT WAS YOURS: Hound dog. I swear I’m always losing things then hunting them out. I’m pretty good at finding lost objects.
ARE YOU AFRAID TO BE ALONE IN YOUR HOUSE:No, I’m not.
DO YOU HAVE ANY RECURRING DREAMS OR NIGHTMARES: Yes, that of being lost or not finding the person I’m supposed to meet.
YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY: I’m in Italy and I remember eating at our table in the kitchen. My dad’s brother would eat with us every evening and I remember him sitting with us.
DO YOU HAVE A BUCKET LIST? IF SO, WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 THINGS ON IT: 1. Return to Italy and see the the Italian Riviera, 2. See where I was born in Italy, 3. Visit Puglia in Italy, 4. Visit my SIL in Arizona, 5. See Hawaii.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY: I really feel blessed. I don’t take anything for granted — family and health is at the top. I’m grateful for all my friends and all of the wonderful people I’ve met on the Internet — especially Dee.Click here to see where I party!
