the guy behind the blog {volume two}

 welcome to the second edition of 'the guy behind the blog' on simply love
1 // do you have a good luck charm or ritual? (like a lucky coin, or you always used to listen to a certain pump-up song when you played sports in high school or college?) 

mr. monaco: I would like to say my wife is my lucky charm, but since we’re looking for some more material, I would say my Italian Horn that I’ve been wearing around my neck since I was 14. A family friend gave it to me when I was moving up to PA and it is my most cherished possession besides my wedding ring. I’m very proud to think of myself as an Italian American and this is another reminder of where I came from.
2 // what is your favorite dish that your wife/fiance/girlfriend makes for you?  do you have any fun memories of a time when she tried to cook and it totally flopped or does she get it right every time?

mr. monaco: Nelle makes a mean taco. We love to have Taco Tuesday every once in a while and it always comes to be just right.
3 // what did you want to be when you were growing up? 

mr. monaco: This was never a question that I could seriously answer. I had no idea what I wanted to be until a couple years after I graduated college.
4 // which of the five senses is your strongest? 

mr. monaco: Taste. I love to eat many different types of dishes whether it’s Italian, Indian, Thai, etc. I’ve also become interested in drinking good Bourbon. The different types of tastes due to the wood barrels makes all the difference.
5 // would you ever run for president? 

mr. monaco: Heck no. I have my beliefs and convictions just like the next person, but I have never agreed with how the political realm proves to be time and time again. I would have a major issue with the lack of truthfulness in Congress. Plus, I’ve never really liked drawing attention to myself.
