Once upon a time, a boy named Kenneth was born. A 4th-generation New Yorker, his favorite things were food (Angelo’s pizza, Liebman’s pastrami, the Mister Softee ice cream truck and the hot dog cart right outside his apartment), music (guitar lessons at 8, concerts by Johnny Winter, The Rascals, and The Doors by 11), subway trips to Knick and Yankee games, skiing, and all things New York.
A few years later, 3000 miles away on the West Coast, a little girl was born named Anna, a 4th generation Californian. Anna’s favorite things growing up were trees, flowers, her pets, swimming, riding her bike and cherry pie. Rides in the back of her Papa’s pickup with her brothers and sisters through their family tree nursery and summer BBQ’s. She was a daydreamer always drawing things and re-decorating her room with a budget of $50.00 at age 8.
Each of an independent spirit, they did their share of traveling and enjoyed many of the foods and cultures the world had to share.
