August 2019 – Wellness Issue

I’m just going to be honest here and share my crafting confession – I started a cross-stitch design of a cactus way back in February, and all I have to show for it are two sad, off-green blobs. As a longtime Pinterest failure, I am in awe of every single person we’ve highlighted in both …

May 2019 – The Women’s Issue

I drove into work on April 10 listening to one of my all-time favorite songs, “Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley. It’s on the Spotify playlist I often listen to when I’m under stress, and as we were on deadline with this issue, I needed a little reminder that “every little thing is gonna be …

April 2019 – Durham’s 150th Anniversary

September 2018 – The 9th Annual Food & Drink Issue

In late July, I took Andrea Griffith Cash‘s advice and had myself a staycation. Now, I didn’t follow all of her guidelines (find them on page 54). I sort of did the CliffsNotes version; I only took one day off, and I was working maybe 30% of the time, but, hey, I wasn’t in the …
