La Dolce Vita





Three years ago today we said I do.We were married at the Palazzo Zenobio in Venice. After we said our vows we ate white candied covered almonds. This is a very symbolic Italian tradition.

The color white is said to represent purity and the sugar coating is symbolic of sweetness. When combined with the bitterness of the almond the confection represents the sweet and the bitter sides of marriage. Before this time my palate knew only of bitterness. This sugary sweetness was foreign to my tongue. Since then I have developed an addiction to sugar. My body knows no less. We live the Dolce Vita-The Sweet Life.

I am truly blessed.
