Welcome to July, everyone! This is a very special month for us, and we hope for you as well! This month, among other things, we are celebrating 17 years of blissful marriage. The family decided to go RV camping for the occasion - I was out-numbered.... As most of you know it's now three of us (with our seven year old future CEO Alessandro).
