My name is Vivian, but many call me Viva because I been told I’m vivacious. I live with my wonderful husband Domenico and many call him Mimmo because it’s his nick name. We have three amazing grown up children who flew the nest but always seem to find their way home. Domenico and I have been renovating older homes and building new homes for over thirty-three years and loving it! I own Casa Viva Interiors and been decorating Model Homes for a living. One of my passions is cooking and I take great pleasure entertaining Italian Style. I enjoy taking pictures of everything beautiful from a grain of sand to a majestic mountain. My husband and I travel to escape from our children, but they seem to always find us. When I’m not working you’ll find me enjoying a cappuccino with a friend or relaxing with a good novel. Reccently I discovered the world of bloogging so now I can blog about everything Italian. I’m pleased that you found my my blog and I hope you’ll enjoy reading “La dolce Vita through My Eyes”.
