Today is the day! It’s the day that our beloved Louise Mariani turns 100! And in honor of that, I’ve decided that today is the day I release the book about her family. Louise has been such a wonderful addition to my life since I found her just under a year ago and because I adore her and this book is for her, I decided to always remember this day. The day she turns 100!
Louise has lived in San Francisco almost all of her life. She had a brief stint in New York, but quickly returned. She is so vibrant and healthy and she attributes that to walking 40 San Francisco blocks every day for several decades.
Louise is my treasure and I hope she enjoys the book.

If you’d like to purchase it, the link is below. It's a hardbound book and so a bit pricy at just under $30, but proceeds go to purchasing copies to put in the local libraries. I want to make sure that if anyone else ever wants to learn of the Marianis, they find my book and me, so that we can say hello!
Thank you for 100 lovely years, Louise. This post, and this book, is for you!
