One of the coolest things about writing books and blogging is that we have met some of the most amazing women from across the globe.  Today the blog tour for The Friendship Project takes us “across the pond” to London, England where our fabulous faith-filled friend Chiara Finaldi hosts an interview on her blog “The Pearl of Great Price.”  Chiara was born and raised in Italy, but after a whirlwind romance right out of a fairy tale book, was swept off her feet on while studying abroad and now lives in the UK with her husband and six children.  Her blog features articles about faith, family, friendship and some really awesome hospitality ideas.
