Letter from The Publisher

The past few months have been a whirlwind of transition for me, and I must admit, I am ready to slow down and focus on the beautiful sights and sounds that will begin popping up all around us—candles, carols, festive foods, lights—no matter the celebration, I love it all!

Letter from The Publisher

I love this issue because of its focus on yoga, one of the best ways I have found to simultaneously move my body, quiet my mind, and feed my soul.

Letter from The Publisher

I hope you are having an amazing summer. Mine is filled with sorting, packing and unpacking—we are moving, again! Locally—into a smaller place, preparing for our impending empty nest.

Letter from The Publisher

And just like that, another school year is coming to a close. That may not be the first thing on many of your minds, but I think it’s really starting to hit me now that my baby boy is finishing up his junior year of high school and we’ll just have one more year with him living at home full time.

Letter from The Publisher

As we begin to welcome spring, my thoughts turn to the gardeners and farmers that have been busy at work planting the seeds that will yield marvelous bounty in the weeks and months to come.

Happy 2018

Happy 2018! Is it just me or do the years seem to be clipping by at a faster pace with each trip we take around the sun?!

Letter from Publisher

Happy Holiday Season! As the days grow shorter and colder, I delight in the last of autumn’s leaves swirling from the trees and the twinkly holiday lights that begin to dress many of the houses in the area.

Letter from Publisher

And just like that, we move into the season of back to school, football games and campfires as my oldest son moves out of the house and onto his next adventure—college.

Letter from Publisher

Ahhh… summer! And what a summer it is—for my family, it’s the last summer before Davis heads off to college so there is a good deal of bittersweetness. I know it’s all right and good, but I will miss his regular presence. And I’m sure Sy is probably not looking forward to getting all of our attention!

Letter from Publisher

There’s so much to celebrate in this issue. Since it spans the months of May and June, we have Mother’s Day and Father’s Day (I love you mom & Wood and dad & Anne!).

Letter from Publisher

As I write this, we have had a pretty mild winter; yet still, I am ready for spring. I love going outside without a jacket on, seeing flowers beginning to bloom and birds building their nests.

Letter from Publisher

Happy 2017! The new year brings with it so much possibility and potential. And this issue, jam-packed with interesting news, articles and events provides you with a multitude of ways to ensure that your year is full of opportunities for healthy living.

November/December Publisher Letter

September/October 2016 Publisher Letter

Happy September! It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since I took over this wonderful publication. Eighteen issues later and I still look forward to each one—it makes me excited about the future of healthy living in the greater Richmond area.

July/August 2016 Publisher Letter

Happy July! As we enter into the lazy, hazy days of summer here in RVA, I can’t help but be thankful for the river that runs through the heart of our city.

May/June 2016 Publisher Letter

I wish a Happy Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to all of the parents reading this issue, with a special shout out to mine for being so loving and supportive.

March/April 2016 Publisher Letter

What will you do this year to honor and care for this planet we call home?

January/February 2016 Publisher Letter

Happy 2016! It’s a brand new year full of potential. What will you do with it?

November/December 2015 Publisher Letter

Happy November! I can’t believe we are entering into the last two months of 2015. Where does the time go? It seems to be passing faster and faster and there are so many moments I want to savor without them speeding by.

September/October 2015 Publisher Letter

And just like that, it is September. Changes abound now—the changing seasons, the changing leaves, even the changing traffic patterns with the school buses and students back on the roads.

July/August 2015 Publisher Letter

Happy Summer! This issue marks two years that I have been publishing Natural Awakenings Richmond.

May/June 2015 Publisher Letter

With this issue comes Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and the beginning of summer, and the many changes that come as the seasons cycle.

March/April 2015 Publisher Letter

Happy spring! What a lovely time of year this is in RVA—the sun shines warmer, the James flows with exuberation, the buds begin to blossom and the birds seem to sing more joyfully.

January/February 2015 Publisher Letter

I always love the opportunity the new year brings to take stock of the past year and decide if any changes need to be made.

November/December 2014 Publisher Letter

Ahhh—the holiday season is upon us. I always look forward to this time of year.

September/October 2014 Publisher Letter

Another summer has come and gone. Is it just me, or do they go by more quickly the older we get?

July 2014 Publisher Letter

This summer is special for me as it marks a full year of being the publisher of Natural Awakenings Richmond.

May/June 2014 Publisher Letter

May and June are upon us – for me, these months conjure up the images of freshly mown grass, fruits and vegetables ripening on the vine, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gatherings and celebrations, the start of BBQ season, school ending and summer officially beginning.

March/April 2014 Publisher Letter

I am ready for spring, with its warmth, sunshine and freshness.

January-February 2014 Publisher Letter

Happy New Year! I can’t believe another year is upon us, yet I am always excited by the prospect of new beginnings.
