Buh-bye, July… Hello, August! And hello, Readers! Every month it’s such a joy and privilege to be able to write to you – to share a bit of my life and tell you how special you all are to me! It’s a wonderful honor to be a part of your lives and I am thankful!
July was a whirlwind! Where did the lazy days of summer go?!? They seem to have gone on vacation (insert irony here, right?!) My husband and dad visited my brother and sister-in-law in Maine, and had a wonderful trip (albeit, a challenge coming home). While I didn’t get a “real” vacation, I was spoiled by some of my besties for an unexpected and amazing spa day for my birthday! As you can see from this month’s picture, we’ve also enjoyed some family time at the lake. We’re finding more and more ways to enjoy one another and it’s such a blessing.
In my limited free time, I have started reading a new book, “Girl, Wash Your Face.” Friends, if you haven’t read this book yet – please promise me that it will be next on your reading list! The author wrote, “When I find myself judging someone in my head (and let’s face it we all do!) I force myself to stop and think of compliments about that person. By doing this, I’m learning to look for the positive instead of reaching for the negatives.” As I let that sink in, I couldn’t help but think of how much better the world would be if we ALL practiced this technique.
This month’s GNO will be on Thursday August 9th and, as usual, we have our annual collection for Educator Warehouse. Please be sure to join us at Legacy Stables and Events for great food, drink specials, and a chance to support a wonderful organization designed to help WS/FC School teachers! See details on page 37.
Also – this issue is synonymous with Back-to-School season, but it also ushers in wedding season in our minds! We’ve begun production on our November issue of Forsyth Woman Engaged!and if you are recently engaged, you’ll want to stay tuned. Also if you’re interested in advertising your business to local brides, please email Advertising@ForsythMags.com.
As always, we are excited about this issue and thank you for reading. Please be sure to show your support to our advertising partners who make all this possible! Let them know you saw them in this month’s issue, and we hope to see you at GNO very soon!
