Happy JUNE! The month we celebrate the end of the school year, the start of summer and of course, the month we celebrate our dads! I want to wish my dad (Teej) a very Happy Father’s Day. His patience, love for his family, and special bond with my dog, Carter, are just a few of the things that make him an amazing dad. The man loves coming up with nicknames and once you have one… it’s going to stick. Probably forever. Anyone who has met my dad knows that he has always called me “Sis.” He is a man of few words but whenever he has something to say to me, it always starts with “Hey, Sis…” That phrase always makes me smile.

Our team has worked so hard on this issue of Forsyth Woman! You are in for a treat! I won’t mention all of the fabulous articles that are in this issue…but I am going to mention a couple:
- Accent Prone celebrates TEN years this month! We’ve been working with Cheri and Justin since the day they opened their doors and WOW! What an honor it’s been to watch them grow. If you haven’t visited Accent Prone yet (maybe you are living under a rock? or maybe you just moved here??) …don’t walk, RUN! It’s well worth the trip to Kernersville. From home décor to clothing and jewelry… they truly have something for everyone. You can read all about Accent Prone HERE.
- We’re proud to announce the launch of a Fashion column! You can check out “Fashion for the Forsyth Woman” HERE. Y’all know we love shopping local and a fashion column seemed like the perfect addition! (P.S. If you love shopping, save the date for the 2022 Tour de Boutique on October 8th…register at tinyurl.com/2022TDB and stay tuned to @forsythmags on social media for details)
Our mission at Forsyth Woman is for every single issue to be positively inspired and community focused. We love our community and genuinely hope this magazine can help you find a new business, make a new friend, learn about a new event… or better yet, ALL the above. As always, you can read all our content here on our website, in our print issues (that can be found at 700+ locations in and around Forsyth County) and you can tune in to our podcast! A new episode is released every Thursday. Search “Forsyth Magazines”on Apple Podcast, Spotify or any major podcast streaming platform.
“When we lose someone we love, we must learn not to live without them, but to live with the love they left behind.” (Author Unknown)
Roy Jennings Jr. (Uncle Roy) and Brooke
My family recently lost my Uncle Roy. He was a husband, a father, a papa (with TEN grandchildren), a brother, a friend, and a follower of Christ. He will be missed dearly, but I know our whole family will continue to live with the love that he left behind. There is a beautiful tribute to him HERE.
I hope you’ll join us for Girls’ Night Out at MidTown Café & Dessertery on Wednesday June 8th !
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and fun start to your summer!
All my best,
