One of my good buddies from SU, Jordan Wilder Guagliumi has this amazing mother, Susan Guagliumi, who puts Martha Stewart to shame. Some of my fondest memories from college and starting my career in NYC was spending time at the Guagliumi home in Cheshire, CT. Susan and Arthur are both world-renowned and very talented artists in their own respect, but Susan has this amazing gift when it comes to cooking, gardening and crafting. I learned a lot from her and she always managed to get everyone involved in a fun project. Susan is currently working on her 5th book tentatively titled “The Artful Gardener” and I can’t wait to check it out. In the meantime, please check out Susan’s blog for tips, tricks and previews from the book.
