Hi from Perugia!
My name is Bethany. I'm originally from Texas, but I've been living here in Italy for 7 years now with my husband (also American) and our two young daughters. Both my husband and I are self-employed and work from home, and we choose to live in Italy because we love the lifestyle, culture, and people here.
I've been quietly reading these forums since we started preparing to move here back in 2007. It's about time I introduced myself and said hello.
