Ciao. I'm Su.
Living Authentically in Italy
When I got divorced in 2016, I felt adrift. All the plans I'd made for the future with my partner had vanished. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Where I wanted to live. How I wanted to be.
The biggest disappointment for me was in travel. We'd traveled all over Europe together, and without a travel companion, I felt like that part of my life was over.
Until I started traveling solo.
To my great surprise, it felt good. Authentic. Like a me I hadn't known since my early 20s. I craved more.
I'll admit, books like Under the Tuscan Sun and Eat, Pray, Love planted the seed of completely changing my life in a new country. Specifically, Italy.
At first, it felt like a pipe dream. Something to fantasize about, but not a real possibility. But then one day, I asked myself, why not? The quirky, adventurous girl I'd been at 18 began to pore over maps of Italy, watch every movie that took place there, and of course, drink prosecco in support of this dream-turned-reality.
Once my son graduated high school, I completely turned my life upside down (in the best way possible!) by relocating to the south of Italy. Just me and my two cats!
Looking back, I realize I have my divorce to thank for getting me here. If I hadn't gone through all that pain, I wouldn't have found the inner strength to find myself.
Through this process, I have come to the realization that I am intensely passionate about helping women realize that they deserve to live authentically. That who they were in their relationships or as mothers does not have to define who they are becoming. That they can do exactly what they've always dreamed of doing.
And I feel a particular connection with women who, like me, have fallen in love with Italy! It's my mission to make a move to Italy a little easier.
If you're ready for a fabulous life filled with pasta and picture-perfect memories in Italy, it would be my honor to help you get there.
