Meet Nancy Jarrett

By Leslie Moore

Nancy Jarrett loves order – in her work as the C.P.A. for Waccamaw Community Foundation, and at home where any nice day may find her outside on her riding lawn mower or edging her immaculate lawn – but not before she makes her bed and balances her checkbook to the penny! Warm and attractive, Nancy […]

Nearly all of the Sasee women I know love to dress up in a truly beautiful, flattering outfit, with just the right accessories, including, of course, the perfect pair of shoes, and go out for a special evening of celebration. It’s one of our favorite things about the holidays. Then, after New Year’s Eve, it’s […]

Good manners are something most of us are taught as small children to help us navigate not just social situations, but day-to-day living. Even today, I can hear my mother’s voice telling me not to gossip or speak negatively of others – not that I’ve always heeded her advice. Recently, my friend Daphne told me […]

Several years ago I was out to dinner with a group of my girlfriends. We were all dressed in our cute summer clothes, and, all of a sudden, I noticed something that every single one of them had that I didn’t – cleavage! Flat as a pancake my entire life, that night started me thinking […]

I grew up (like many of you, I’m sure) taking piano lessons every week and practicing nearly every day, not so much because I wanted to, but because my mother made it a priority.

Summer is my favorite time of year. I never complain about the heat, and I enjoy meeting the visitors who come to enjoy the spectacular beauty of our area. While on my morning beach run or walk, I see many of the same people, who, like me, love the peace and beauty of the dawn. […]

This July is a big month for me. On the 13th, I will turn 50. Yes, my friends, it’s a big birthday! For the past few months, I’ve been thinking a lot about this milestone and how I feel about it. And, I’ve come to the conclusion that I really am getting better, in most […]

Tucked away on a quiet street in Litchfield Country Club, Dottie Dixon and her husband, John, live a quiet and satisfying life. Dottie is a well-known local artist who has won numerous awards and is exhibited in several local galleries. Her work has appeared on the cover of Sasee twice in the past few years. […]

As the only child of older parents, I spent a lot of time growing up listening to my parents, and their friends, talk. They talked about everything from their favorite foods to the skeletons in the family closet, and I cherish the many things I learned about my parents’ lives that they may not have […]
