|Introduction||I think of life's pleasures as spices: the charm of that picture-perfect Parisian café; a Santorini sunset worthy of the gods; the vibrant virtuosity of a Florentine fresco ...
These spices and many more like them make life the zesty experience it should be. On that note: Enjoy this blog of epicurean delights.
