What I love about the Mediterranean Lifestyle is that it’s not just about deliciously good food, but it’s also about getting together to share a meal, share your hopes and dream and to motivate each other to keep moving, naturally.

Hands up if you love to learn? I have two hands up and both my feet! I love learning - in fact, after homeschooling my daughters for a mere 20 years - you're welcome and thank you - I set out to make my way back into the working world and enrolled into TAFE to complete the Early Childhood Diploma. I wasn't sure what I should do - so much had changed since I was in the work place before having kids and I figured if I do something that is familiar to me I should succeed and somehow give me the confidence to keep moving forward. Well, I did succeed and went onto University and commenced my Bachelor of Early Childhood/Primary Teaching.
