Welcome! And thanks for stopping by! Andiamo means "let's go" in Italian, and as I am very partial to the Italian side of my heritage as well as always on the go with my family of five, it was the perfect name for this little page of mine. 
My  husband Matt makes many an appearance on the blog as my chef and my diy-extraordinare... We've live in Central Pennsylvania but (not so) secretly wish we could pick up our entire family and move south where there are palm trees aplenty. We have three kids, Letteria (11), David (9) and Dominic (6). They are pretty much it in my world because well, I love my kids. Like a lot.
I'm a stay-at-home mom who spends most of her days watching the clock until the kids return from school and plotting whatever adventure we will be off on next. On andiamo you will find an occasional recipe or diy, but mostly just tales of our times as a young family of five, always on the go.
We enjoy spending time with our extended families, doing house project after house project, that after work cocktail, sarcasm and a good laugh, fountain sodas, all things Disney, reading all the books I can get my hands on, tattoos, decorating my house, travelling near and far, daily runs and gym visits, the sun and a good tan, coffee, punctuality, Christmas, watching all the shows and all the good movies and you know, just living life and doing all the things we can in the days we are given!
You can read our different stories here. Andiamo! Let's go!


  1. Found you through the linkup. I live in Central PA too! Haha asking about the amish is always the first thing people ask me, after the whole Sandusky thing. I'm liking your blog!

  3. After reading that your husband was half Norwegian I, of course, had to look again at the picture and laughed out loud. I think Samoan is a good bet.

  5. I don't know when you updated this last, but I am only seeing it now! It's so YOU and I love it.

  6. Salve!
    I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. Upon reading some of your entries, I find them simply heart-warming, in some ways. You have a lifestyle that is pretty much how I wish mine to be. I also love Italy, all about it. The food, the music, the language, the buildings or the houses, everything! However, I'm not Italian. But I got excited when I first found out that you're one. :D
    I also like black as leggings or blouses, wine, Disney, Sinatra, coffee--wait, all of your faves written above are mine too! I don't write as good as you, though. But one thing for sure is that I would love to keep reading your blog!

  8. Happened upon you by pure accident while I was looking for a "Mainiac" ball cap for my father-in-law, who grew up in Limerick, ME. Love your site!


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
