why i blog // how it all began

Debbi DiMaggio

A photographer friend encouraged me to Blog. His images were so beautiful I just didn’t think I could do it without him or why anyone would want to read what I had to say.  But once I started Blogging about my favorite things and sharing  intimate stories or thoughts, I soon began receiving emails from readers who touched my heart and even made me cry.  I had actually touched another with my Blog Posts.  With that I knew I had to continue to connect, Blog and share from the heart.

My message is simple:

La Bella Figura – Live, Love, Laugh, Give, Inspire, Care, Be Passionate and do it all Kindly and in Style.


His name is Quentin Bacon.

Quentin took this photo of me. We spent the afternoon celebrating my birthday at The Carneros Inn in the heart of the Napa Valley.  Check out his work, he is truly a gifted art director and photographer. Thank you Quentin for believing in me and encouraging me to write 🙂
