So it's been VERY slow going with getting my husband's paperwork complete for his citizenship! Today he let his mother know he needs a certified copy of HER birth certificate and marriage certificate. We figure the US wants to verify that they are not married for convenience, even though my FIL is not a US citizen and has been here for oh, 40+ years. In the mean time...
I have a little party favor (cookie party favors) and party planning business (check it out: http://www.shortycake.com/) that I'm trying to turn into a BIG business. After going to a gazillion Italian weddings/birthdays/christenings/funerals/etc./etc. and seeing that at every event a favor is given-specifically referred to as Confetti Bomboniere- I thought adding those niche favors to my product line would be a great fit. (Is that the longest sentance ever??)
Internet research lead me to a company in where else, Italy, that actually has stores that solely sell these Confetti Bombonieres. I emailed for more information about getting the products imported here for resale or even opening a franchise. What do I get back?
A beautiful and quite polite reply ALL IN ITALIAN! Google Translate...not good enough to get the point across to me on what was trying to be said. I printed it out and today handed it to my FIL who then translated it and let me know that someone from the mother country will be phoning me.
I pray he/she speaks English!!!
