An American in Milan

Welcome to Outpost Italy

      I've always felt a deep, intimate connection with Italy—a love affair that began during my junior year in Florence, where serendipity led me to meet my first husband at a bus stop. My bond with Italy deepened further when my sister relocated to Rome. And in a twist of fate, it was in a charming piazza near her home where I crossed paths with my second husband.


    While Italy seemed to present me with love, my true desire was to intertwine myself with its rich history, breathtaking landscapes, and tantalizing cuisine.


    Now, as a writer, mom, entrepreneur, and cook, I find that sharing my journey through a blog is the perfect platform to document my adventure of finally making the move to the country that has held my heart for so long.

I invite you to join me on this exciting journey and hope you find inspiration and joy in the stories and experiences I have to share.
