Letter from the Editor: The Simple Life

It’s February and that means Valentine’s Day! I’ve always loved this holiday, whether or not I had a significant other in my life. In recent years, I like using this day to spend some time focusing on my most important relationship – the one with myself. Treats are important, and I always feel much more loving to others when I take good care of me. If you need some ideas on how to navigate this day solo, read Phil La Borie’s article on page 22 – I love how he turns Valentine’s Day into a reason to make the world around him a little better and more loving. I haven’t decided exactly what I’ll be doing on February 14, but chocolate will definitely be involved!

A holiday in February that I’m just finding out about is Galentine’s Day on February 13th. Started as a tongue in cheek parody that fans of the TV show “Parks and Recreation” will recognize, Galentine’s Day has become a fun way to recognize the importance of our relationships with other women. If, like me, you are just learning about this holiday, 2018 may be the year to start celebrating the women who make our lives so much more meaningful. I found many ways to make this day special with a quick Google search.

Enjoy this entertaining issue – as always, my hope is that the fun we had putting it together comes through as you read. And, whatever you do to celebrate this month, I wish you a beautiful February filled with love – and, of course, chocolate!

Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
