Coffee with Michael

It was just a normal sunny fall day in Lasalle Gardens and then Michael’s wheelchair ran out of power in front of my house…

Rocco’s Italian Deli

It’s food porn. In many ways, it’s the perfect meatball sub. The meatballs themselves are finely textured and you can just tell they’re made with love. It makes me feel like somehow I’ve become Italian. Suddenly, I have a loving and doting Nonna, and I spend every Sunday at her house after church anxiously awaiting […]

Keyboard customization
