I believe honoring your heritage and combining it with well being, wisdom, self-love and soul care while giving back to your community contributes to a more fulfilling life.  I also draw great inspiration from celebrating my Italian & Greek immigrant ancestors' culture whose courage to come to America, taught me about inner strength by creating a well lived life of love, food, family, faith, persistence, nature and longevity.  Hope you can find ways to celebrate your life and history too.
