Fun Facts:

  • Dione loves the culture and food of Mexico. Each year, she and her husband take a trip to their favorite spot – Zihuatanejo, Mexico, near Acapulco. You might recognize it from the movie The Shawshank Redemption.
  • Dione’s extreme love for gardening gets really serious when it comes to peppers. Each summer she grows 20 different kinds of peppers in her large vegetable garden and jars enough giardiniera to last the year.
  • Planning is another of Dione’s fortes. Everything from vacations to dinner parties gets thoroughly researched and planned to perfection. It’s a gift (or an obsession).
