This evening brought everything full circle - DROM was a music venue I frequented to write posts for my then Bare Feet Blog at the beginning (circa 2011-2014), and to have all of these people come together to celebrate something that was created out of so much love, dedication, hard work, blood, sweat, and definitely lots of tears, HERE of all places where it was cultivated, was true magic. This was just so overwhelming for me to have everything come together in such perfect harmony.

Thank you to Shoot My Travel for capturing these magical moments from the evening (see all images below from the event - feel free to share your favorite moments and tag us at @TravelBareFeet & #BareFeetDNA)

This new season of Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi is dedicated in loving memory to Antonio Mallozzi, my Zio Tony - this #BareFeetDNA story is not only part of my story but also my family’s story and my Uncle Tony’s legacy.
