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!

An Event of a Lifetime

I like it when an email comes in from Shutterfly saying “your memories from this week last year…” Looking back usually evokes many joyful emotions and I am reminded of God’s blessings in my life. Physical reminders of God’s faithfulness in the past can remind us to trust Him now and in the future. The photos from my daughter’s wedding recently arrived. I am going to savor the moment now and in years to come.

The Elegant Nature Wedding

I’m not surprised my daughter’s priority was to get married outside in a beautiful nature setting. We eventual chose scenic Spanish Hills Country Club for the site of the wedding and reception.

Party Time

One of the best things we did was to add an extra hour to the reception time. It gave people time to dance and relish the moment. Our DJ, Nicholas Whitzler – Impressions San Diego, was a marvelous MC and he kept the hits coming! Another good idea was purchasing flip flops at the Dollar Store, so the ladies could kick off their heels. We had a box full and they were all used.

The wedding cake from Viktor Benes Bakery received many compliments. We went with the strawberry cream filling. Delicious!

 

 

 

With all our loved ones around us, the evening couldn’t have been any better.
