This year has brought a host of new challenges and opportunities as a result of Covid. After closing both restaurants last year, I had a lot of time to think about how I was going to continue to share my love for people without being able to create food as a way to express that love. It also became very clear to me that it was not only cooking and people I was missing - it was hugs. They have become such a big part of my connection with others. It didn't take long for me to realize that many were missing those comforting, warm hugs too. Touch deprivation and feeling disconnected are two serious effects of a year spent in isolation.

For many years, the daily practice of meditation has brought a greater sense of balance and connection in my life. This inspired me and revealed a new way for me to share love and positivity.
I joined forces with my brother William and developed HOLD (HUGS OF LOVE DAILY) - a 14 day meditation series that comforts and uplifts people during isolation and beyond. I'm very proud of what we've created and excited to introduce you to HOLD.

Please take a moment to check out I would appreciate you sharing with friends, family and anyone who may be feeling disconnected or just need the comfort of a hug.
Thank you for your support.
