From the Heart: January 2019



New Year and welcome, 2019! It’s surreal to think this is the last year of this decade.

I ended the year with a pre-Christmas girls’ trip to New York City with my daughters and our dear friends, Angela and Spencer Leonard. We had done a similar trip some 10+ years ago in the spring, but there’s nothing quite like NYC at Christmas time! Might have gone a little overboard on Broadway shows, as we went to not one, not two, but three shows! We all agreedFrozen was our fav, followed by an amazing dinner afterwards. We had a blast marveling at the Christmas window displays, the Rockefeller tree and beautiful lights at every corner. We haggled with street vendors on Canal Street and enjoyed appetizers and drinks at a rooftop igloo bar. How blessed am I to have had this experience with them all! Thanks, ladies, for the memories and special way to end the year!

Our cover story this month is The Montessori School of Winston-Salem and their new Adolescent Program Campus. It is an amazing facility nestled away in Clemmons. I was privileged enough to get a tour of this new campus during their cover photoshoot and wow! It was created with such attention to detail and care that it almost made me want to be back in school. Almost!

January features our annual Birthday Bonanza issue, with our pull-out Celebrate Life calendar. It features a place for you to list all your special occasions and has a handy reference on back with vendors to help you create magical celebrations all year long. Be sure to tear it out and keep it in a handy place.

For those with high school students, yes, prom season is upon us. Take a peek at our prom section for information to help make spectacular prom memories!

Here’s to an amazing New Year!

Blessings!
