Everything I need to know about life, living and happiness I learned from reading The Godfather . Everything that I dream about I see in the ocean. Connect the two and you’ll have an interesting look at the gamble called life.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Caroline Ranoia and this is just a small sampling about what’s in store with this blog. I grew up in Drexel Hill- go ahead, ask me what parish because only folks from DelCo know what I am talking about with the “parish question.” That would be St. Bernadette’s class of ’73. In 7th grade my parents moved a little further up the road to St. Dorothy’s. Cardinal O’Hara was my next scary adventure in Catholic education and then onto Cabrini College. Finally they let me out of the pen and I joined the punk rock wearing all black artsy crowds at Philadelphia College of Art – funny I was the only girl that wore a kilt to a drawing class – hey, you can’t take the Catholic girl out of the Catholic school mentality, just like you can take the girl out of Delaware County but Drexel Hill will always be called home. A few years after college and working full time for a meeting planning company, I got married, flash forward – got divorced and I’ve been around the block a few times and learn a lesson daily about life.
I live in a small seaside cottage that was built in 1910 – an original Sears Craftsman house that is a work in progress. Work full time for a weekly newsgroup, love making hand made soaps the old fashion way, paint, draw and am an avid gardener. I also own a women’s boutique in Cape May, NJ called MoonStruck Boutique @ 503 – 503 Lafayette Street – Cape May, NJ 08204. 609.884.5949. www.moonstruckboutique503.com
