image (3)Who: Ula Ghosheh, Zumba Instructor Extraordinare! Why: I love the fact that a Palestinian engineer from Carnegie Mellon is now a successful Zumba entrepreneur with a fanfare that is growing by leaps and bounds.

Wine Tasting in Napa

My love for good wine is no secret and I feel very blessed to live near some of the best wine producing regions in the world. Drinking fabulous wine is such a privilege ...few things compete with it. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to visit many wineries in Napa but my most recent visit (past weekend) was probably my favorite because we really planned it out in advance. We love big Napa reds so we picked the following wineries to visit. Each winery was unique in its own way and a pleasure to visit.
