Debbie realized a few years ago, that she was no longer challenged by her successful TV career and she was so busy she felt she was missing out on the people and things that made her happy in her life. She dared to dream about a whole new direction in life-a plan to turn a 13th-century farmhouse in Tuscany into a unique hotel and retreat for people who need a change in their lives. Now she is not just living that dream, but sharing it with others.
