Our travel adventure began in 2018, after an event that could be better described as a dark fairytale, occurred during our first minutes of bonding as a family of 3.

Three months later, our waterfront unit was packed into cases and we flew across the ocean to Rome. The twins were raised tech-free in the provincial countryside during a pandemic, and once the masquerade had ended, our journey through ruinous and regal Italy began.


Three distinct personalities with a magnitude of divine feminine energy, woven together with a geeky sense of humor and down-to-earth values of respect, compassion & gratitude… at least, this is what “pre-school” prioritized!

“Spring began in Paolo Sarpi, Milan's hip Chinatown district - pleasantly void of Italian venues. I was able to reminisce in Asian culture, their sweet & tangy flavors away from starchy carbs, and enjoy being the only blue-eyed redhead in the neighborhood."

In 2018 I became a mom to identical twin girls. My family lineage ran ordinarily singular, there were no records of twins. Having been diagnosed with PCOS, some earlier symptoms of Endometriosis, and several years of Amenorrhea (no monthly bleeding), my reproductive unit was questionable at best. On Sunday 11 November, Ariélle and Freyja arrived, small and healthy. That was the day I held my life’s greatest gifts.

Before that day, I had purchased and renovated investment properties, built a short-term property rental empire, and pursued a small acting career while my daily grind was Fashion PR, Media and Technology.
