Life is changing rapidly and we must embrace the change for a brighter future.
I know it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and that has been for several reasons. One reason being we were traveling way too much and needed a break from constant social media that was simply taking over our lives. We were already doing “Ronn’s Garage,” “Cooking with Devin” and livestreams on our travels and concerts. You guys woke up with me and we took you along as much as possible on our past journey. As the world began to rapidly change with the lock down and the rising costs with the economy, our focus shifted to more important matters. We decided to make some major changes of own. Our kids were grown up and had moved on with their lives and we became aware that we did not need so much to deal with anymore.
We decided to downsize to a much smaller home and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona last fall. And we decided to restore a 200 year old Trulli in Puglia for the summers. These were huge moves for us since Ronn has only lived in California his entire life. However, Italy has had a love affair with Ronn like no other country for decades. He did his first movie in Sicily way before “Bold and Beautiful” was a hit, so it was only fitting we make Italy our second home. Traveling isn’t as much fun these days and we felt having a summer home in Italy now made sense. The kids can come visit us and who doesn’t love summers in beautiful Italy?
Since Ronn now has a new solo album released and a summer tour all over Italy, it has officially become our seconda casa. We fell in love with southern Italy back in 2012 when we renewed our vows in the now famous Borgo Egnazia. The food, culture, people and of course wine from this region inspired us to produce our first movie, “Surprise Trip” now on Amazon Prime, Sky TV, ITA Airlines and is currently in film festivals for International distribution by Minerva Pictures. Ronn wrote and sang all the music for the film, which inspired his new album, “Surprise Trip Love” that is currently getting rave reviews. He is thrilled to now combine his musical talents in films we can also produce and we are currently working on developing a thriller and a western with this same formula.
I am now an International editor for a new luxury magazine devoted to Italy called, “Lost and Found In Italy.” And I will have a regular column in this beautiful quarterly magazine where I will give real estate advice, along with recommendations on travel, food, fashion and wine. Together, Ronn and I are combining our love for Italy and doing all the things we both love to share all that we can with you now.
We can’t wait to share all the amazing things Italy has to offer from all of the different regions we are experiencing firsthand with you along with many surprises along the way, this will indeed be a new adventure to bring you all on.
