I feel quite honored to be featured on in its first blogger profile called Behind the Blog – Laura from Ciao Amalfi! I had a great time answering the fun and thought-provoking questions about my background, my life here on the Amalfi Coast, blogging, photography, the adventures of launching a freelance writing career, and my favorite orange cat named Puffy. Since I don’t often reveal too much about my personal life here on Ciao Amalfi, this is the real inside scoop!


And since Puffy hasn’t made an appearance recently, here he is sporting his “sleek summer look” as I described it on Italytutto. He looks like a completely different cat when compared to the orange puffball he is during the winter! But I can’t imagine he would look this cool if he still had all that winter fur.

Many thanks to for the Behind the Blog feature. I look forward to learning more about  my fellow Italy blogging friends in upcoming Behind the Blog features!

    Ciao Karen! Grazie! Did you have cats waiting for you back in the states? Do you guys have any pets? I am curious to see if Puffy will get so Puffy again this winter! 🙂

    Your Puffy looks a lot like my SUnshine – maybe we should give a haircut too when it gets hot in San DIego….congrats on the interview!

    Ciao Linda Lou! Sunshine is a great name for a puffy orange cat! 🙂 I was surprised just how much fur Puffy shed this summer. He must be so much more comfortable without it all though. I have to admit I miss his puffiness! One good thing to look forward to with the cooler fall weather. 🙂
