    Ladies - As another year comes to an end, I want to take this opportunity to thank you ALL for making our meetings --very thought provoking, amid intelligent conversation and always fun.
    I look forward to our get togethers. Your comments are very eye opening - so interesting that bring to the surface ideas, concerns and angles - we may have not considered individually.
    Let's continue with our extraordinary group.
    Have a Happy Holiday - and an Awesome New Year Celebration.
    See you all lovely ladies - NEXT YEAR!!!

    Hello! I just went to the bookstores website, and they are showing a different address then the 2800 Florida ave. Since I'm new to Miami and this group, I'm not sure what is right. Is 2800 the new or the old address? Thanks!

    I'm so excited to be reading this book! I love all things Italian, especially Florence and the Renaissance. Having seen "The Birth of Venus" painting in person makes this book even more exciting to read. Can't wait for our meet-up :)
