Winning an Auction Leads to Umbria
Susan, you bid on the week in our farmhouse offered as an auction item by our dear friend, Donna.
A joy to have met you and shared the week with all your Colorado family. Thanks so much for your note to us:
“Dear Anne and Pino,
I have been blessed to work with women battling cancer for many years. I never dreamed it would lead me to Umbria and an opportunity to meet you and stay in your wonderful home!
Your love and knowledge of this beautiful area of Italy is palpable – and after spending a week here, it’s easy see why you love this area and chose to make it yours!
I loved meeting your friends and enjoying the wonderful food, wine and hospitality. Thank you for making this a very special trip for me and my family….
Warm regards, Susan A”
Holly, enjoyed meet you and husband Kendrick and your lovely children, too: glad you shared in that astounding gift of your sister-in-law, Susan. Mille grazie to you too, for your kind note:
“Grazie mille for a most wonderful stay. We so enjoyed meeting your family and friends and experiencing your local Umbrian way.
Your hospitality was so wonderful and it made us feel like we were at home all week. You were awesome to shared your world and take us in, welcoming us with our children……you are officially our Italian family!” Holly A., Breckendridge, Co
