About

Practicing gratitude brings me joy and it is one way I worship God. I appreciate where I am on my life’s journey and I seek the beauty in every season. On some occasions my blogs are me thinking out loud but most of the time I write about life stories that are so good, I have to taste them twice! There will also be some great health and wellness tips! I am a Southern California empty nester who has raised a wonderful daughter, Lindsay, with my husband of thirty three years, Steven. I have been blessed with eight siblings, twenty one nieces and nephews and two great nieces. Before raising a family, I enjoyed an illustrious career spanning several decades in the entertainment industry. This brought me amazing life experiences like performing for the Royal Family of Monaco. 

Currently, I am teaching Yoga and Pilates. Holding fitness certifications from AFAA – Aerobic and Fitness Association of America and NESTA – National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association, I work passionately as a fitness motivator, speaker, writer and instructor.

Additionally, I enjoy singing and dancing. I have continued performing with different bands. I also entertain with my gal pals from the Dean Martin Golddiggers and with my sister, Maria Lauren. Maria and I co-authored the, “Rat Pack Book,” Beyond Our Wildest Dreams.  

Fun Facts About My Past

I entered the professional music scene on local Television and later went on to sing with my sister Maria. Both Maria and I were chosen as members of the singing-dancing group, “The Golddiggers,” Consequently, I regularly appeared on the “Dean Martin Show” and performed on “The Jonathan Winters Show”, “The Mike Douglas Show” and “The Tonight Show.”  I toured with the best of show business ‘royalty’ including, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Steve Lawrence, Edie Gorme, Jerry Vale, Donald O’Connor, Louis Prima and Bob Hope. These accomplished artists gave me an incredible education in music and entertainment.

Later, I put the “The Golddiggers” group on hold, but continued to have a prolific career as a sister act. “The Alberici Sisters” frequently were an opening act for many stars. Jay Leno, Bobby Vinton and Norm Crosby were some of those artists. Along with a singing and recording career, my acting talents brought me the opportunity to guest star on several prime time television shows. For example, I hosted KTTV Channel 11 Bedtime Movie and acted on Denzel Washington’s hit series, “St. Elsewhere” as well as, “Knight Rider”, “Mike Hammer”, “The Dom DeLuise’s Show” and other television productions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With this abundant life, I praise God for the blessings He put on my path. I reveal my gratitude by giving back to those in need in my family, church and community. I have joyfully served for many years in Christian church music and missions ministries. Pursuing this further, I traveled with my husband, Steven, to Lily of the Valley Children’s Village in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, where we cared for orphans affected by HIV/AIDS. As a result, we helped start a non-profit in the U. S., Lily of the Valley Endeavor (Lily of the Valley AIDS Foundation), to support the children and raise awareness. My husband and I are also involved in other causes that promote Christianity, human rights, education and the arts.

Journey with me and my family as we aim to grow in love through Jesus Christ and improve the lives of individuals with heart felt service in wellness, faith, fitness and entertainment. Welcome!

Barcelona and Park Guell

The beautiful Le Meridian hotel on Las Rambles was the perfect location to take in the sights and sounds of Barcelona. Our first night in Barcelona, we decided to walk from the hotel and explore on our own. In the small center, right outside our hotel, an acrobatic street show was going on and a cheering crowd had gathered. Their energy put us in a festive mood.

The buildings along the way were beautifully adorned with interesting architectural details.

Las Rambles was packed in the early evening. The street was teeming with the overflow of people.

PLACA REIAL

After walking about 15 minutes and turning down aside street, we came upon the coolest place, Placa Reial. It was an expansive plaza with a dozen or more restaurants circling the inside perimeter. There we saw more talented acrobats performing. The street artists entertained the crowds as they dined. I was amazed at the dare-devil tricks they did on hard cement.

Watch this clip of the street performers as one of them does a flip over four people selected from the crowd.

 

A lovely, large fountain accented the center of the Plaza Reial square. my husband, Steven enjoyed people watching from his position at the fountain.

Steve also loved perusing the restaurant menu’s that were prominently displayed outside of each restaurant.

The biggest surprise of the evening was the stunning sunset in the Placa Reial.

PARK GÜELL

Our second day in Barcelona, we met some family members who joined us on vacation. Our first stop was Gaudi’s Park Güell.

Park Güell features lovely gardens and architectural wonders by Antoni Gaudi.

The buildings reminded me of gingerbread houses. I love Gaudi’s creative liberty and imaginative, ornamental creations.

Gaudi put into practice a series of new structural solutions rooted in geometry. His works acquire a structural richness of forms, free of the rational rigidity or any sort of classic premises. In the design of Park Güell, Gaudí unleashed all his architectonic genius and that would become the symbol of his organic style.

Charming, like a fairyland! Gaudi’s fantastic mosaic work was incredible. My photos couldn’t capture the amazing detail.

We bought our “skip the line” tour tickets to the park weeks ahead of time on Viator. I recommend doing that during high tourist seasons.

Part two of our Barcelona adventure will continue, it includes the spectacular Sagrada Familia. Check back next month!

Gratefully yours, Linda
