You may have noticed that lemons, oranges and bread are always present through the feast of St. Joseph. Each have significant meaning. I have written about them on many occasions in past Sista Felicia St. Joseph Posts,  and this year they will be once again highlighted in many of my post… The lemon represents the sweetness of ones life, and the orange represents life’s bitter past, and the bread is for all to never go hungry!

I First I have to thank my dear friend and fantastic videographer Craig Kimberley, for offering to film this production the moment he heard the plans in the making last spring during the Mathews Family homemade wine production, and filming. I personally would like to thank my friends and family for their labor of love and helping hands throughout this entire production.  I can’t wait to see the finished piece! I would also like to thank my”Creative Director” James Eves from Cape Ann Giclee for designing and producing the beautiful Sista Felicia Limonciello Bottle Labels. You always know how to “Felicitize” everything we do, and I adore you for that! A special thank you to the Mathews Family Neil, Bridget, and Abbey for sharing in the cost of the production, and for the lovely Sista Felicia Tags!

Sunday afternoon, my friends and family joined me for my 5th annual personal Christmas Party. My childhood friend Katrina Lafata Haskell’s husband Jim kick off of our evening with a special wine tasting, which included a bottle of homemade wine produced here in Gloucester, by Friends Neil & Bridgett Mathews, and their Family. Every year we looks forward to learning something new  from Jim about his line of wines. This year wine was served in hand painted wine glasses  adorned rhinestone “PEACE” symbols made by my mom.  The hand painted glasses have become an annual tradition my mom and guests equally enjoy!  Mom loves to create them, and our guests enjoy taking them home at the end of the night. I want to thank my husband St. Barry and my mother Pat for insisting I keep tradition and host the party this year, when they heard talks about me not hosting it this year, shortly after my daughter recent surgery. They knew I need a night of fun, and knew this night would raise my spirits….and that it did!  Thank you ladies and Merry Christmas!
