About me

Introduction My name is Carrie (Ballard) Bean. I am Catherine (Penello) Ellison's granddaughter. One of many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren actually! :) Grandma Kitty, as she is known to by so many, will be turning 100 next August 2012 and it has been a lifelong dream of mine to go to her homeland in Italy... the place where her family all began. This reality all came true for me this past August and I put this blog together to share my journey. I hope you enjoy learning a little more about her famiglia! :)
