DomLovesMary font: Una Bella Vita


If you’ve been following the story of Dom loves Mary, this is the final post in the series.  If not, you can go back and read about Mary, Dom , their wedding, reception, honeymoon, Babies Make Four and The Daughter they never had and The Grandchildren.

Moment by moment, Dom and Mary created a beautiful life.

In Italian, we say “Una Bella Vita”.

Dance at Rainbow Gardens July 3, 1953- 2 months before their wedding.

Yes, this young feisty girl who loved to sing and dance and her strong, silent guy had quite a life.  A beautiful life.

And I’m so grateful to have been a part of it.

I hope the font that is named in their honor would make them proud.  I know they would feel the love that went into creating it.

It’s also my hope that those using the font will have their own version of “Una Bella Vita”.

When I was thinking of how to end this lovely series, I came across some pictures that made me smile.

Immediately a voice in my head encouraged me to  “go out singing and dancing.”

So here you go Mary.

      So sweet of you Nancy. It was very emotional for me too. Made me even more grateful, not only to have had them in my life, but to be carrying on their love and legacy with Michael,Nick and Alex. And of course Mary used to always remind me I was married to “the cream of the crop”. It’s true:)
      Love,
      Debi
