Prosecco & Palmtrees is a mommy and lifestyle blog focusing on love of style, photography, travel, beauty/fitness, all things Italian, and life as a working mom in my historic hometown of Winter Garden, Florida.

As a child my parents instilled in me an independent spirit, and from a young age I traveled with them often. I would grab my camera to capture the history and sights of the new places we would see.

Always stubborn and hard-working, it was natural that I became a long distance runner at the age of 15. I ran the Boston Marathon at 22, and completed my most recent marathon 3 months after the birth of my son.  After graduating from Penn State as a communications/sociology major, a brief stint as a character performer at Walt Disney World, and finishing law school, I moved back to Florida to enjoy some sun and fun.

I’m married to my best friend Matt and live in Winter Garden, a historic former citrus town in Central Florida which is going through an exciting rebirth in recent years. After a long journey, I’m blessed to be a mommy to my baby boy, and each day when he wakes up still feels like Christmas morning to me – even those really early ones!   In-house lawyer by day, slowly but surely I am learning how to manage this crazy work life balance, and have found a renewed focus on finding those things that make life special and most fulfilling.

I created this blog as a place to share my passions in life, and I hope you enjoy learning about them as much as I enjoy sharing them with you!
