As we looked back at our Winter 2019 Editor’s Letter, we couldn’t help but laugh about how optimistic we were looking ahead to the next decade. It was soon to be 2020, expected to be filled with promise and excitement. While this year isn’t ending the way it started, it is our hope that the moments of uncertainty and anxiety we’ve all experienced in 2020 have been balanced with a renewed sense of home, family, and purpose. We hope that you have grabbed ahold of a slower pace and added some self-care to your routine. In many ways, our community has come together for the greater good.
In this issue, we are thrilled to celebrate ‘Women of Initiative’ for the third time. You will enjoy learning more about five women in our community who have a passion for making a difference in other people’s lives, every single day. You will meet Beth Gibson, Rachel Finney, Lynn Rosenthal, Nichole Dunn, and Elizabeth Abdur Raheem. Their selfless determination will inspire you to seek opportunities, to give back in our community maybe even to one of their organizations!
Our winter fashion feature takes on a little bit more of a casual look this season. People are staying home more, work-life balance has changed, and holiday plans are not so glamorous. We put an edge on winter fashion and took advantage of the industrial, under-construction zone of the upcoming Aloft Hotel at Easton Town Center. You’ll love denim that we found in various washes and prints. Leather pants, skirts, and leggings are a wardrobe staple this season. Animal prints are always on trend. Layering in all patterns and fabrics allows for lots of mixing and matching. We encourage supporting local designers and boutiques!
Looking for some fabulous pastries? Take the fuss out of baking them yourself and sample some of the amazing creations we found. There is something for everyone and sure to be the centerpiece of your small gathering.
The impact of cardiovascular disease on women around the world is staggering. The awareness of heart disease and its implications on women’s health has declined. We hope to increase awareness by sharing what we leaned about the disease, how it can be treated, and steps that can be taken to minimize it.
Let’s head into 2021 making sure that our hearts, minds, and bodies are healthy too. You will learn about practicing gratitude and how important that can be in creating a healthy mindset. Habits, good or bad, are with us every day. Find out how a reaction to a trigger can be healthier for you while reaping the same reward. See how floating can set your worries free, ease pain in your body, and settle you into a meditative state. Collagen is the most plentiful protein found in your body. Find out more about how you can naturally rebuild it and how supplements can also increase production.
Travel has taken a bit of a pause. But there are still great day trips. We explored the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and are excited to share this historical treasure with you in the hopes that you will experience this adventure and the rich history of this popular music genre.
