Letter from the Editor: Everyday Joy

Along the coast, one of the first signs that fall is coming is the appearance of delicate and beautiful yellow butterflies. Called cloudless sulphur butterflies, large groups flutter around my summer-worn impatiens and lantanas, and I feel the first bittersweet twinge of autumn’s approach. As a lover of all things summer, I have to ease […]

Letter from the Editor: Changing Scenery

First, let me say that I am, and have always been, a dog person. But, in spite of my canine proclivities, I was awakened this morning, as I am most every morning, to the tune of Ruby the cat purring in my ear. Ruby is always given the task to wake me up by her […]

Letter from the Editor: Water and Sun

I love everything about summer, and when everyone around me is complaining about the heat, I’m reveling in it. And, to me, nothing says summer like a thunder storm rolling through after a hot, sultry day, encouraging everyone to stop and enjoy nature’s show while basking in the sudden drop in temperature. As much as […]

Letter from the Editor: A World of Color

Hair is important to women – a change in cut or color is nearly always preceded by much thought and conversation with our closest friends. I’ve participated in many of these conversations and have seen my friends get spectacular results. And while I do want my hair to look nice, I’ve never felt quite as […]

Letter from the Editor: Family Ties

Time with a good book is one of life’s simple pleasures – and I know many of you feel the same. These days, most of the books I read are non-fiction that I pick up to learn more about a specific interest, and I always enjoy these reads. But, May starts the summer reading season, […]

Letter from the Editor: Flowers & Forever

Every spring the wild violets are the first to bloom in my yard. Their delicate, purple flowers and heart shaped leaves spring up in pots and in the grass – usually I would only give them a passing nod, but this year I have a new appreciation for the determination of these tiny blooms. They […]

Letter from the Editor: The Art of Food

I’ve been very fortunate to always have access to delicious food. Our restaurants are amazing, and I also enjoy cooking – a simple, well prepared meal gives me as much pleasure as an elaborate feast. But even the most amazing gourmet meal at one of our local eateries can’t compare with the Sunday and holiday […]

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 […]

Letter from the Editor: First Steps

It’s January dear readers! A month of new beginnings and cozy sweaters and (finally) time for reading good books. But January isn’t most people’s favorite month, even though I believe it should be. I love January for many reasons – the first is that it’s my son’s birthday month. I received one of the two […]

Letter from the Editor: Dazzle & Delight

This photo of me and my youngest granddaughter, Ellis, was taken last year on Thanksgiving Day in Baltimore. My daughter, son-in-law, Ellis, her sister Quinn and I went to a fun restaurant for the holiday meal. The girls were restless, naturally, at two and three years old their attention span is limited. Hoping to distract […]
